With equity crowdfunding, you get a financial stake in the company you’re supporting. Indiegogo and MicroVentures, two leaders in the crowdfunding and investing space, created an equity crowdfunding platform, First Democracy VC, that allows financial investment in innovative startups. Equity crowdfunding has risks and you may lose all or a portion of your investment.
Any individual 18 years and older can invest, as well as any eligible entity. If you live outside the US, please check your local securities laws but we are allowing most countries access to invest when the laws allow it.
It’s free to create a profile and you will only be charged an investment processing fee if you make an investment.
Individual investments start at US$100, but startups set the minimum they will accept. Investors will have investment maximums based on a few factors, including earnings, net worth, etc.
Investing in startups means you own a piece of the company and are along for the ride, whether up or down. With this partnership, all investment transactions take place on MicroVentures.com.
Each offering company decides how much money they want to raise, what they want to offer, and what the price should be. The offering terms are noted on their page.
Before you invest, each company is required to show how they plan to use the money raised and other financial information. After investing, each company is required to routinely share information about how their businesses are doing.
How does it work after my investment is made, what is the next step?
After you make your investment we will process your investment and the funds will sit in escrow until the investment closes. If the minimum goal is hit by the end of the round we will notify you of the close and provide documentation regarding your investment.
