What are the benefits of equity crowdfunding?
The oldest platform in the startup investing arena is not even 2 years old. However, with the advent of online platforms, angel investors will not have to take time out of their busy schedules anymore in order to participate in the required activities that are established by joining an Angel Group. Angels will now have the chance to navigate and source deals from the comfort of their home or from anywhere in the world. This includes interacting with other users online for crowdsourcing the due diligence process via “deal rooms” or online groups that could be established on some of these sites.
Furthermore, with platforms like Onevest there is no such thing as a minimum investment to become a member and membership is completely free.
The secret sauce of these sites is diversification. As an investor, now you can invest that same $50K median investment into 5 different startups, increasing your chances of finding the winners. This is a completely different approach in comparison to the offline investing norms, where investors are required to invest minimums that range anywhere from $25K to $150K for any single investment opportunity.
