In August 2015, Onevest completed self–crowdfunding on its own platform after raising a Series A round of financing of over $2M. On such round over 60 entities participated with tickets ranging from $5,000 to $600,000.

On July 27, 2016, Onevest announced it was acquiring its major direct competitor, FounderDating, in order to merge that platform with its quite own CoFoundersLab. According to the announcement the result of the acquisition would increase the number of registered entrepreneurs to over 300,000 on the platform and now providing services to entrepreneurs that would range from idea to funding and beyond.
