This is my last article in 2021 about where to find the best startups to invest in. What a journey it has been, mentioning a plethora of startups have started their equity crowdfunding campaign in various industries. I highlighter companies in many different stages, ranging from recently funded to closing soon.
As always, the starting point for finding the best startups to invest in is to have due diligence, a complete understanding of the risks involved, and a certainty that these promising investment opportunities are 100% suitable to your risk tolerance and investment philosophy. I dare to say that, unlike most crypto coins that are highly speculative with little to no fundamentals at all to support their prices, the startups presented during various articles have great potential to become disruptors in their industries. This is another key factor when considering them as alternative investments.
For this article, seven companies that just recently launched their equity crowdfunding campaigns are presented. The journey into 2022 with new insights on private investing is set to continue.
Let’s look at seven of the best startups to consider now:
Topics such as healthy and sustainable green energy have become very important as we try to address climate change. Geoship is manufacturing bioceramic domes to disrupt the homebuilding industry with healthy, sustainable and affordable housing solutions.
Built with zero-carbon ceramics and precision-engineered components, these bioceramic domes are more than just earth-friendly houses. They are 100% non-toxic, disaster-resistant such as fireproof, and have a 500-year life — enough for you, your children, and many generations to come. There are infinite possibilities to use these domes, and they are redefining the meaning of living in complete harmony with the environment.
Other than fire, these bioceramic domes are also resistant to extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes, floods and earthquakes.
The affordability of these housing solutions is also a feature not to be ignored, especially as prices for traditional houses in the U.S. market have increased substantially due to the resilient housing market and its rebound amid the pandemic.
The business model supports vertically integrated homebuilding, limiting the numerous material supply chains used in more traditional houses. These ceramic domes cover multi-dimensional needs from affordable housing to wellness housing.

What if mobile hospitality and booking a hotel room on wheels were easy, fun, and adventurous? Excursion Van Rentals designs custom camper vans with full amenities, built and optimized for renting.
The company estimates that “glamping” could be worth $4.8 billion by 2025 and is positioning itself in this business opportunity in the adventure travel space. The pandemic has caused new trends to appear in the travel industry, and camping is gaining popularity in the U.S.
The customized excursion campers are a hotel room on the move. They have ” solar panels, deep-cycle lithium battery packs, heating, refrigeration, a fully equipped kitchen, a bed, ample storage, and an outdoor shower.” They also have one element that is priceless to traveling — a unique view that can change daily if you move to different locations and ultimate freedom to explore new sceneries.
These excursion vans are built in-house by Excursion Van Rentals, controlling their costs. The average nightly rate is about $200.
Millennials have embraced and become the fastest-growing new camper demographic and are expected to support the experience economy, an economy where there is a preference to spend money on a desirable experience or an event over buying something physical. Live event excursions are parts of this experience economy, which is expected to reach $12 billion by 2023.
Excursion Van Rentals plan to expand to other adventures soon, letting people try kayaking, horseback riding, and wine tasting.

In a world with the pandemic still present after two years, Phyt Health is a remote care physiotherapy platform that helps patients stay in contact with their orthopedics and physiotherapists. By using computer vision and AI-based technology, patients can expedite their recovery process as this mobile app tracks the exercises done at home in real time. There is corrective feedback if the speed of exercises is higher than the one suggested, and the exercise data is monitored by the Phyt Health team, which provides information to patients during the week.
The various applications of Phyt Health in medical practices, clinics and hospitals can generate additional revenue for medical health practitioners.
It is notable that Phyt Health developed its platform in South Asia first and is now entering the U.S. market. Physiotherapy’s total addressable market (TAM) in the U.S. is experiencing a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 7%. Furthermore, it is already valued at more than $100 billion.
The business model is to focus on partnerships with hospitals using this technology platform that is digitizing physiotherapy. For patients, lower medical expenses, the convenience of doing these exercises at home and getting digital AI assistance to achieve better and faster recovery results either post-injury or surgery are prime advantages.
