You, our members, are the heart of hobbyDB. Many of you give your time and knowledge to make the project better and better each day. Without you, the database would not nearly be what it is today. With the community’s help, the database has grown to cover a huge 586,000 collectibles and their related subjects, plus 4.4 million price points. And we’re now the official home of more than 480k collectors.
That’s thanks to you, the Batman to our Robin and vice versa.
Since the beginning, we’ve always wanted to give our members the opportunity to own a part of the project. So when crowdfunding became possible, we knew it was the right step to take for our community. And now, thanks to many of you, 652 members are official hobbyDB owners!
Moving forward, we want to continue to ensure that our community always has the opportunity to own a part of what they are helping to build. So, we’ve decided that it’s time to do another crowdfunding round.
Introducing our lead investor, Bruce Pascal
We are excited to welcome Bruce Pascal as the round’s lead investor. With more than 30 years of commercial real estate experience, Bruce is an investment veteran who has handled some of the most complex and largest lease transactions in the nation’s capital. Bruce is best known in the collecting community for curating the rarest Hot Wheels collection in the world.
“I’ve followed the hobbyDB story since they started back in 2014,” said Bruce. “I think the idea to have one central place for collectors to go to research and manage their collections is exactly what the industry needs. And if this goes well, this could be really big.”
So what’s in it for you?
It used to be that investing in awesome projects and great teams making cool things (and potentially lots of $$$) was just for the top 1%. But now, thanks to the JOBS Act, EVERYONE gets the opportunity to own a piece of something great that they love! Equity crowdfunding basically allows anyone to easily invest in early-stage pre-IPO companies that they believe will do great things! By uniting fans of all kinds, we’ll be able to shape the future of collecting and create a resource that we all love to use.
When you invest in us, you are buying actual shares of the hobbyDB that you believe in. As we move forward, the overall goal is to become the ultimate home for collectors and when possible, pay dividends to our shareholders. There is also the opportunity of acquisition, where you would receive pro-rata payment of the sales price. Don’t miss out on your chance to invest alongside Bruce and other collectors. If we do well, so will you.
