Sophisticated investors will demand a model that bridges the gap between crowdfunding and Private Equity: https://t.co/5CE2sIfJPy
As Crowdfunding becomes more embedded into the corporate finance eco-system of the UK, the likelihood is that we?ll see more people investing ever more larger sums. Equally, we?ll see new platforms, developing models that suit the ?high rollers.?
Venture Founders offers one such model . Founded by James Codling and Paul Moravek ? both with backgrounds in investment banking and corporate finance ? this is a platform that retains many of the key elements of crowdfunding while restricting its service to ?sophisticated investors.?
As James Codling explains, the objective of Venture Founders is to provide investors with an opportunity to invest in fast-growth companies ? businesses that are already generating revenues but in search of additional cash to fund their progress along the growth curve.
