To get a pulse reading on the emerging equity crowdfunding market, take a look at the CNBC Crowdfinance Indexes. The main CNBC Crowdfinance 50 Index is a daily average index of the 50 highest total recorded capital commitments received by private U.S. companies that are actively listed on Crowdnetic’s data platform, which collates real-time offerings from 18 securities-based crowdfunding sites: Alchemy Global, AngelList, Crowdfunder, CrowdStreet, EarlyShares, EquityNet, MicroVentures, Onevest, OurCrowd, Patch of Land, Prodigy Network, RealCrowd, RealPartner, Realty Mogul, DarcMatter, SeedInvest and WeFunder.

Companies represented on the index are operating companies raising money, not equity funds. They represent eight sectors: commerce and industry; consumer goods; energy; finance; health care; materials; services and technology.

Additionally, there are indexes to track the growth in Real Estate, Services, Technology and Vice.
