× How much are your fees? We charge a 5% success fee on all funds raised from both backers & non-US investors. We charge no fee for US accredited investors. If you do not raise any funds, you pay no success fee.

Additionally, if you raise money from investors too (rather than just backed funds), we charge an additional $2,000 for completing the investment, issuing shares and the legal work. If you do not raise any additional funds from investors, you do not pay the additional investment success fee.

Do you charge investors?

We do NOT charge an up front fee to invest or back an equity pitch. Fund pitches state any fees on their investor page. In general we align our fee structure with investors returns.

Unless stated otherwise on any individual pitch, we charge investors a 5% fee on dividends payed in the future, and 5% if there is an exit. Investors only pay our fees if you pay investors returns commonly known as a 'carry'.

Upon investing investors may incur a payment processing fee levied by the payment processing merchant. Investors will be told if this is the case & the exact amount before backing or investing in a pitch.

What is the difference between backing and investing?

If your pitch in popular they can help you reach your funding target in two ways:

INVESTING: Investing is only available to qualifying investors on our platform. Investors become a shareholder by investing in your company indirectly through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) so you only get one new shareholder in your company on your register, but benefit from having more than one investor. Before doing this they will need to sign up or login for free, and complete our compliance process and ensure they are a qualifying investor before investing. If your pitch reaches at least it’s minimum funding goal, then they will become an indirect shareholder in the company through our SPV and investor agreement.

BACKING: Non-qualifying investors and qualifying investors can back your pitch in exchange for the rewards listed on your pitch page. Once the pitch expires, they get the rewards offered on the estimated date stated by you. If there are no rewards displayed on your pitch page, then non-qualifying and qualifying investors may wish to 'JUST GIVE' money to the business to help it reach it's goal.

This is why pitches almost always raise some money through us, even if it is not the full desired amount.
