Now you can share in the success of the startup

When you register and are approved to invest through The Startup Hour™, you may participate in “equity crowdfunding”.

Unlike donation and rewards-based crowdfunding (such as Kickstarter, Indegogo and others) where people donate funds toward a project or campaign in exchange for a product, t-shirt, or goodwill, equity crowdfunding allows each investor to participate as part of a “crowd” that invests in a private company not listed on the stock exchange. Together, these individual investments combine to form a valuable source of seed capital for a business.

Once invested, the individual investor may have a partial ownership in the business (in most cases) with common stock. If the company does well, shareholders stand to share in the success. Of course, investors should note that investing in startups always comes with some degree of risk.

Today, regulations exist to help protect investors by attempting to limit the amount invested in relation to total assets. Accredited investors have fewer restrictions on them when making investments in seed capital, limited partnerships or hedge funds. It is still important that investors do their due diligence in any investment they intend to make.

Accredited Investor

Accredited Investor is a term used by various countries’ securities laws that defines investors permitted to invest in certain types of higher risk investments including crowdinvesting, seed money, limited partnerships, hedge funds, private placements, and angel investor networks.

In the United States, an accredited investor must have a net worth of at least one million US dollars, not including the value of their primary residence, or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 together with their spouse if married) and have the expectation to make the same amount this year.
