The fundraising landscape for startups is rapidly changing.
In 2016, there were 898 venture firms in existence, managing 1,562 active venture funds and translating to approximately $333 billion in U.S. venture capital assets under management.
Other capital raising methods, such as Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and Equity Crowdfunding (ECF), are rapidly gaining popularity, representing fundamental changes in the way startups can raise, and investors can invest.
Whether you're a startup looking to raise capital, or you're an investor looking for the next opportunity, we help you navigate the complex world of venture capital, so you can make informed decisions for you and your company.
How we help
Equity Crowdfunding allows you (i.e. the 'crowd') to invest in an early-stage unlisted company in exchange for shares in that company, giving you partial ownership of this company.
Previously, only wealthy individuals and companies could invest in startups. However, similarly to general crowdfunding popularised by platforms such as Kickstarter, ECF has democratised the investment process, allowing more people - the crowd - play a role in helping companies grow.
For startups, ECF also opens the doors to a larger pool of potential investors, meaning more interested people can be a part of the company's growth, allowing the raising of higher amounts of capital.

ICO or Initial Coin Offering is the new way to raise capital in a decentralized world powered by the phenomenon of Blockchain.
An ICO is similar to an Initial Public Offering on the stock market, where investors can purchase just-released stocks. With ICO's however, investors purchase tokens (or units of crytocurrency), rather than a share in the company.
In 2017 alone, over $2.3 billion has been raised in ICOs.
We help you navigate this innovative funding mechanism by understanding your venture and developing a business model with a token that aligns with your purpose.
