Equity Crowdfunding World – Everything You Need to Know
Equity Crowdfunding World was founded in March 2023 by industry veteran Howard Sherman With ten solid years in the crowdfunding industry under his belt as the head of Crowdfund Buzz, Howard is one of very few people qualified to speak for and represent the industry. Tired of seeing “mainstream” business news outlets publish incomplete and sometimes even inaccurate articles inspired him to lead the way in filling in the gaps in news and information. Case in point is this article which is currently ranked #1 on Google for search term “equity crowdfunding”; we see it as woefully incomplete because it is missing critically important information in our opinion.
Since our launch, ECW has led the way in chronicling the rise of equity crowdfunding in America and around the world. In no other period of human history has the planet witnessed changes so dramatic or swift. ECW covers the births and deaths of companies; the creation of new industry niches; documenting best practices; uncovering and exposing waste, fraud and abuse; profound advances in science and technology; revolutionary social media movements; the rise of consumer economies in the U.S. and abroad; and the fitful march of globalization.

We are the definitive source of news and information through the lens of equity crowdfunding relating to business, finance, economics and money, global forces that shape the world and are key to understanding it. Our audience is anyone who wants or has a job, a career or an ambition in equity crowdfunding; who seeks money, makes money, spends money and saves money; who desires an edge as an investor, an employee, a manager or an entrepreneur; or who simply wants to better understand how the world of equity crowdfunding works.
In the main, we provide facts, data and information along with opinions related to topical, timely matters at hand.. We believe in full separation between News and Opinion. We pursue exclusive stories, with the goal of breaking all important scoops in our core areas; deep insight and analysis; and actionable intelligence—being the first read and the last word. We have a unique, trusted responsibility as a watchdog and custodian. Across coverage, we seek a genuinely diverse set of voices and experiences with every story striving to speak to as wide an audience as possible.
As journalists, we are humble, curious, empathetic, informed and open-minded. Our work is plain, direct, concise and accessible, but not simplistic. Trust in our news, information and authority is the currency we seek to earn with all we produce.
We have an important social purpose. Society benefits from a common set of verifiable facts and a broad set of voices that reflect our world, even in times of stress and division—indeed, especially in such times. Providing those facts informs debate and contributes to the greater good.

Our adherence to the highest and most rigorous standards of fairness and integrity is a cornerstone to our rapid growth. Our reputation is our most cherished possession. We strive to be a model for ethical, fact-based, ambitious news reporting in equity crowdfunding with full transparency free from agenda
This dedication is a central reason we are so trusted by readers.. Readers trust us because they see us as fair, accurate and impartial. There are many journalistic practices that are the bedrock of this trust.
Our journalists are committed to the most ethical conduct in pursuing our work and aim to uphold the legacy of integrity above reproach, including adherence to a commonsense code of conduct. We aspire to honest and ethical conduct in all iterations with colleagues, competitors, sources, subjects and our readers. We avoid the perception of bias as rigorously as we do any real bias. We forswear financial entanglement with, or perceived obligation to, our sources or the subjects of our work. We avoid partisan political statements or activities. We offer professional support for our colleagues to raise ethical concerns.
No Surprises Journalism
We adhere to a long legacy of ‘no surprises’ journalism. That means performing the highest level of due diligence to assess the credibility of our sources, and providing an opportunity for full and fair comment for all parties involved in an article before it publishes. We never pursue an agenda other than an unwavering commitment to the truth, which is why we strive to attribute all disputable facts as precisely as possible to relevant parties, and write in a neutral declarative tone.
Opinion: Free People, Free Markets
Our pages will always stand for democratic self-government and the freedom of individuals to make their own economic choices. These principles guide the staff-written editorials which are specified as opinions and such to delineate these pieces from news itself, and the goal is to inform and persuade based on our own reporting. The pages are also a forum for debate on the issues of the day, including a variety of columnists, non-staff contributors and newsmakers, and views across the business and political spectrum. Our book and art reviews also fall under Opinion, providing commentary on the cultural, literary and artistic works of our time. The Opinion posts operate independently of our news posts.
How Does Equity Crowdfunding World Avoid Conflicts of Interest with Advertisers or Sponsors?
The staff of Equity Crowdfunding World carefully screens all advertisers for ethical and professional performance in line with our own high standards. We operate independently from commercial considerations of executing marketing, advertising sales and general business operations. This independence ensures ECW’s coverage remains free from outside influence or commercial considerations. That commitment is about as old as journalism itself. We stand on the shoulders of what The Wall Street Journal noted in its first-ever edition on July 8, 1889: “The fundamental principles in carrying out our news business are these: To get the news, to publish it instantly, whether bull or bear. No operator controls or can control our news. We are proud of the confidence reposed in our work. We mean to make it better. And we mean to have the news always honest, intelligent and unprejudiced.”
