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 portal, 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.
In a Regulation Crowdfunding investment opportunity, 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.
In a Regulation D 506(c) investment opportunity any individual who is an accredited investor can invest.
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.
What is First Democracy VC?
First Democracy VC is a registered funding portal formed through a partnership between Indiegogo and MicroVentures.
Investing in startups means you own a piece of the company. The company will utilize your proceeds to achieve its business goals and objectives. You are along for the ride, whether up or down. It is important for you to understand the long-term business plan. You should not expect an immediate return on your investment due and to the risks involved you could lose some or all of your initial investment. Conversely, If the startup is successful you could realize a gain on your investment. You should read all the company information carefully before making your investment. 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.
