There are 4 steps:
- Create your profile, and your project – Each project will be reviewed carefully by our Executive board and must be approved before fundraising can begin.
- Market your project – Take advantage of our social media tools to share your project with friends, family, colleagues, customers, the media and potential investors.
- Gather investors – Interested investors will be able to invest in projects in amounts as small as £50, or as large as they wish, via our online payment system.
- Collect funds– Once fundraising is completed for your project, all funds will be collected and sent to your designated account.
Every project has 90 days in which to hit their target. This time may be extended at The Right Crowd’s sole discretion.
Pre-IPO is a shorter version for saying pre-initial public offering. This means the public can get involved with funding a company and helping raise a targeted amount before the company is placed in the stock market.
Equity is the value of the shares issued by a company. When you invest with The Right Crowd you get shares in the company you invest in.
Once your project reaches its target amount, the funds will be deposited into the project owners account 15 days after close. The Right Crowd team will contact successful project owners, and investors.
Investors should be aware that there are risks to investing in shares of companies, especially if they are private companies as there may be little or no market for the shares to be traded and dividends are unlikely to be paid. Investments may go down as well as up and therefore investors may not recover their initial investment.
