Many startups fail due to lack of funding. On the other hand such platforms as seedrs (FCA regulated) allow individuals to invest in startups small amounts. What do you think of this?May 31, 2017 at 10:51 am #171105
Crowdfunding is the buzzword of the decade but it isn’t all plain sailing with plenty of losses in the various platforms’ portfolios

It is true, investing in startups is very risky. 1 of 100 can be successful but this 1 may be worth of 1000s fails. Getting 1-2% share of an early stage startup doesn’t cost a lot but 1-2% of Facebook or Uber is a fortune.June 7, 2017 at 5:27 am #171311
yes that is very obvious that funding gives a kickstart to a business. Nowadays bootstrapping is not viable because the risk becomes higher so comes the theory of crowdfunding.
it helps a lot because the risk reduces. The business plan should me mentored at first and appropriate investments should be made.
We have created a platform to integrate the idea holders, angels and the mentors where the ideas can pitched by the idea holders and get mentored.

Optionality. One of the core strategic things that most smart people get wrong is that they overvalue optionality. Businesses that value optionality will start a few different products with the hope that one of the businesses takes off … or they may make multiple bets valuing portfolio theory over focus.
Startups, fundraising, crowdfunding.
