The advantage of this type of financing is that your business assets do not have to be pledged as collateral. In addition, your business will also have more cash available because, unlike debt financing, you will not need to make debt payments.
The key to this type of financing is the feasibility study backing your project, the projected revenues, and knowing how to present it the right set of investors. Please read our Project Finance section for some more details.
Equity crowdfunding is the name given to the process whereby people (the “crowd”) invest in an unlisted company (a company that is not listed on a stock market) in exchange for shares in that company.
A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit should the company do well. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment.
Zerenato Holdings Limtied offers a unique form of equity crowdfunding: members invest alongside experienced business angels (the professionals when it comes to equity investments).
