The future of equity crowdfunding through Equitise
We are creating an intuitive and automated investment ecosystem which is highly social and inclusive for ALL investor (from family offices, to VC’s, high net worth angels and less experienced retail investors).
We want to make investing in private companies accessible, efficient and cool.
This is achieved within our investment platform through syndicate investment clubs. A “syndicated group” is an umbrella term it covers VC’s, Angel Groups and Investment Clubs.
The syndicated investment model sits within our equity crowdfunding technology and streamlines the traditional investment process for private investment groups. Syndicates enable private investment groups to fund their investments, share their investments with other investors in return for carry, get access to the Equitise Nominee (meaning only 1 shareholder on your investee business register) – all whilst accessing the benefits of our technology.
