More than just money…

Crowdsphere is about much more than just money. Business owners often relish the help and support of an extended community of stakeholders.

Your feedback, experience and expertise through mentoring and advisory roles is commonplace on Crowdsphere and can make the difference between a good and great company. Why not ask an entrepreneur about how you might help.

Risks investing in start-ups

Investing in start-up and early stage businesses can be very rewarding if you can identify and invest in a start-up before it’s well known and profits start to take off. Investing in the next Facebook or Innocent Drinks is possible but more often, start-up companies will fail or not deliver an investor return rather than achieve large-scale success.

The high risk nature and limited liquidity of investing equity in private companies needs to be carefully considered before making a decision as there is a very real possibility that you might lose your money invested. We try to ensure that all pitches have a business plan and financial projections to enable you to make an informed choice about whether or not to invest.
