Startup investing through crowdfunding— do your homework first

This sponsored post is produced by MicroVentures.

Does traditional Crowdfunding give you a gut feeling that someone forgot to do their homework?

You can’t just wing it when it comes to investing in startups. Solid preparation greatly increases your chances for a higher grade on your next investment.

If you are new to investing in tech startups or an experienced angel investor, be diligent in your effort to ensure you pick the Crowdfunding platform that only presents to you startup investment opportunities that have been through a rigorous diligence process themselves.

As the only registered broker-dealer in the Crowdfunding space, MicroVentures manages a thorough due diligence process on your behalf, which includes online documents, online Company presentations, and access to management to help you make a more informed investment decision.

Due diligence is just the beginning to help you prepare. MicroVentures also provides high-touch client service and solid deal flow to minimize anxiety in startup investing.

Client Service

At MicroVentures, our experienced investment professionals take the time to listen and understand our clients’ unique investing requirements. We won’t poke and prod you toward just any startup investment opportunity. Imagine that…being treated as a client on a Crowdfunding platform.

Deal flow

Good deal flow is critical. At MicroVentures, you have an opportunity to invest in multiple prescreened startups  alongside some of the biggest VC firms and angel investors, while at the same terms. Many of the companies have gone through an incubator like Y Combinator, Techstars or 500 Startups, yet their allies do not stop there. Very accommodating…a Crowdfunding platform treating small investors just like big time tech VCs. 

New investors

MicroVentures helps all levels of investors become angels. You’ll learn about companies you may never have heard of and have the opportunity to invest smaller sums, which is virtually unheard of with traditional investing. Gone are the days where you have to risk $100,000 or more, receive a personal invitation to invest from a friend and only see a limited number of deals from the few available in your area. That’s innovative…a platform which matches companies seeking capital with investors looking to invest as little as $5,000 to $1,000,000, or more.

Success begins with MicroVentures

The key to being successful at Crowdfunding, of course, is to invest in the right startups on a platform that knows you. To get there, only MicroVentures provides:
