ARE THEY QUALITY INVESTMENTS?

A company or property development must first have its own external professional lead investor to raise capital via VentureCrowd.

You then invest on the same economic terms as professional leads.

Curation & Alignment

Every deal is subject to our rigorous curation process, we do not just list anything on the platform.

Lead Investors

VentureCrowd is investor-led which means we only list deals with secured professional external lead investors. Our investors then invest on the same economic terms.

Due Diligence

VentureCrowd works with companies that have undergone due diligence and investment process with a lead investor or a VentureCrowd approved partner.

List on VentureCrowd

Once the deal is ready, the opportunity is made available to our investors and listed.

Who can invest?

VentureCrowd has been successfully raising capital for over 3 years from wholesale investors with over $20M raised across 36 successful deals.

Just like the US, Europe, Asia and across the ditch in NZ, Australia has now passed the framework to allow retail investors, you, to also participate. Under this new Crowd-Sourced Funding (CSF) regime, anyone residing in Australia, 18 years of age or older can invest in CSF offers.

How do you make money?

Early-stage investors usually realise a return on an ‘exit’. An exit is typically a trade sale (company or property development is sold) or via an initial public offering (IPO) on the stock market.

The returns from successful exits from early-stage investments can be very high, but the investments also carry risk. Typically no more than 10% of your portfolio should reside in these assets.

Early stage investing is highly asymmetric and thus more risky than other stages of equity investing. To mitigate this risk early stage investors adopt a portfolio approach (ie, investing in many different early stage companies to spread the risk) expecting that about 90% of their returns will be generated by about 10% of the portfolio. Therefore the size and diversification of your early-stage investment portfolio are critical to capture the 10% of early stage companies that might generate 90% of the returns.
