Model

As the barriers of entry to starting up rapidly decline the increase in

startup supply is disrupting the traditional venture capital model

VentureCrowd crowdsources a filtered supply of startup

opportunities via cooperative partnerships across the broad

Australian startup community

Targeting the 200,000+ wholesale investors in Australia who

manage $684 billion of assets

Democratise investment by employing low friction mechanisms such as

$1,000 minimum investment, single pooled investment into startup, most favoured nation investment status

Startups are very risky and many fail. The sector is characterised by

an asymmetrical risk distribution i.e. a large proportion of returns

are generated by a small percentage of startups. There are an

infinite number of exogenous factors that can derail an apparently

best of breed startup

Reducing Friction for Startups

VentureCrowd acts as the trustee for

the investors so that startups deal

with one investor, rather than facing

the burden of dozens of new investors

The platform can be used by startups

to raise seed and early-stage stage

investment from friends, family, angels

and their communities

Many startups decline investments

less than $25,000 in their capital raise

due to relatively high administrative

burden.

VentureCrowd provides access to

previously untapped sources of capital

As an online platform VentureCrowd is

geographically agnostic. Startups can raise

from a national audience

Expect speedier rounds. Offshore

experience is that equity

crowdfunding rounds of ~100-200K

generally close in
