Understanding Startups and Why You Should Invest With Haifa Startup

Is Investing In a Startup Worthwhile?


The rewards of investing in business are realized in the form of the return on your investment, ROI. Your decision to finance a company has a positive effect as evidenced by the creation of jobs, capital formation as well as affording the company an opportunity to further its agenda, actions that work to make a substantial return for you.


What Is The Benefit Of Investing With Equity Crowdfunding?


Equity crowdfunding refers to the pooling of financing by individual investors, “crowd,” for a particular business project in exchange for shareholding or investment in the company. Venture capitalists or other wealthy angel investors were known as the only individuals to invest in startups. The trend has since changed thanks to crowdfunding platforms such as CrowdIsrael, which have created a space for a larger pool of investors.


How Can I Value A Start-Up As An Early Stage Investor?


There is no definitive answer to this question. Various factors have to be put into consideration for the investor to make the final judgment call. The determinants that play into the valuation of a company include the market forces and trends within the industry, including the balance (or imbalance) of the money supply and demand as the main factors.


As an early stage investor, have older established companies as your benchmark. Startup investing involves analyzing the business on its size and potential for growth within the industry as well as its ability to help you attain your investment targets.


Using CrowdIsrael


What Are The Requirements Of Joining?


The process is simple. Sign up as an accredited investor and set up an account. The account guarantees you access to information on all the privately-held companies on our platform. Ensure you complete the accreditation requirements as per the Terms of Service before making any investments.


Why Should I Follow Through With The Accreditation Requirements?


The High-risk investments made to the privately-held companies necessitate the need for certain financial conditions to be met as the first step in the investment process. Different countries have several accreditation principles that revolve around a clear stipulation of an individual’s net worth and their minimum income levels as well as proper documentation as evidence of the same.


For example, in the Unites States, SEC regulations stipulate that any individual earning $107,000 annually or any amount less, can invest a greater sum of either $2,200 or 5 percent of the lesser of the annual income within the 12-month period.


For joint investors, you are allowed to invest an amount less than or equal to $ 107,000 then a 10 percent of net worth or annual income within a 12-month period, whatever the lesser amount.


Every country has its set of accreditation regulations. Contact us for more information on your accreditation needs.
