DALLAS, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you looking for something different to give that special someone in your life? Would you like to give something unique to the person that has everything? Do you want to give a gift that keeps on giving?
Consider Crudefunders.com, an equity crowdfunding platform exclusively for oil and gas investing. For as little as $1,000, you can give your loved one an opportunity to become a real investor in the Texas oil market. This unique gift can be used by the recipient for any project of their choice in 2017. Give the gift to a spouse, child, or colleague this year instead of something that will be forgotten by the time the wrapping paper is tossed out. Crudefunders even offers a third party Self Directed IRA option to allow for tax benefits as well as a variety of college savings plans. "Previously, only a small group of wealthy individuals had the ability to invest in projects like these," said David Taylor, cofounder of Crudefunders. "Today, anyone can invest in an exploration and production oil and gas project, and this holiday season can be a good time to invest in the oil market. With oil prices where they are, if the well hits, the opportunity for our investors to make returns on their investments is possible." Often used in early start-up technology investing, crowdfunding leverages the collective power of individual investors and can even risk more widely. Pioneered by technology platform companies like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, Crudefunders and other crowdfunding companies allow more people to review pre-approved opportunities and ultimately make online investments.
