1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / How to Raise Capital when an IPO isn’t an option? on: October 04, 2019, 01:04:59 PM
Well, it is a well-known fact that Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) are the best way to raise capital, but realistically, it doesn’t work for everyone, especially startups and small and medium-sized businesses.

So, what options ambitious companies have today to grow their business when IPO isn’t an option?

A number of alternative fundraising routes exist today that are leveraged by businesses to raise capital:

Private Equity

What it is?

A private equity firm invests money in start-ups or emerging, profitable businesses. They expect high returns from the original investment that is capitalized by exiting the original assets or securities position.

Advantages and disadvantages


Advantages

  • A stable and robust investor that will support the business for the upcoming 3 to 5 years
  • High Capital Allotment
  • Mentoring support to the executives

Disadvantages
  • It requires giving up to 50% stake of the business.
  • You might end up being influenced by the investors in the decision-making process diverting from the original vision for the interest of the investors.

Venture Capital


What is it:

Venture capital is a type of private equity. It is a legal form of an entity that aims to put together the capital sourced from firms or funds. This capital is normally invested in small and start-up companies that show high growth potential.

It is more or less similar to the concept of private equity, but with VCs, startups have an advantage. VCs mostly prefer growing business and only invest 50% in the equity available to diversify the portfolio risk.

Advantages


>Large amounts of capital can be raised
>Help managing risk is provided
>Monthly payments are not required
>Personal assets don’t need to be pledged
>Experienced leadership & advice are available
>Networking opportunities are provided
>Collaboration opportunities with industry experts & other startups are available
>Assistance with hiring & building a team is available
>Increased publicity & exposure are likely
>Help to raise subsequent rounds of funding is available

Disadvantages

>VCs tend to take or share control over company decisions
>Securing Investment through VCs is time-consuming and long-winded
>Difficult to obtain VC company support, unlike private equity firms
>Founder ownership is reduced
>Finding investors can be distracting for founders
>Funding is relatively scarce & difficult to obtain
>The overall cost of financing is expensive
>Formal reporting structure & board of directors are required
>Extensive due diligence is required
>Business is expected to scale & grow rapidly
>Funds are released on a performance schedule
>Losing the business for founders is possible
>Leverage in negotiations is rare for startups

Digital Asset Investment

What is it?

An online investment platform for creating and launching offers, where people can invest in by purchasing digital assets offered by both public or private companies without geographical barriers.

This offers greater liquidity to both companies and investors. Legal compliance and security are also more when you raise capital through digital investment platforms, unlike alternative fundraising methods such as ICOs.

Advantages

  • Online automated investment ecosystem offers a cheaper, easier, faster and more efficient way to raise capital.
  • Eliminates unnecessary middleman between investors and companies.
  • High liquidity and 24X7 trading facility for investors
  • No geographical barriers
  • Facility to offer fractional shares to investors through security tokens for businesses.

Disadvantages

  • Finding a suitable investment platform is a complex task
  • Some platforms do not provide complete resources to manage the complete investment lifecycle

Hey Investment freaks, can anybody suggest me how can I keep my investment secure and avoid the risk of breach of my personal information while purchasing tokenized shares of real estate commercial online.

FYI, I have made my own due diligence by going through the White paper, Team of one such platform- DCI Ecosystem which offers the facility to hold fractional shares in real estate property.

Still, it's in a nascent stage and also requires KYC/AML for investor accreditation. Should I provide my KYC details? Is it safe to trust such new fintech platform, currently in rooting?
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Third-party software & service providers on: August 26, 2019, 07:42:38 AM
In the present-day investment sphere, both investors and investment seeker businesses are looking for reliable & trustworthy third-party service/software providers (e.g. Robo-advisory, legal firms, accountants, etc.) who can assist them in managing their portfolio and achieving the investment targets respectively.

Some of the common problems faced by their-party vendors in investment sector today include:

1. Intense market competition
2.The challenge to improve their product visibility
3. Declining in profit margins from the client end
4. Absence of innovative, tech-driven global investment platforms with advanced digital capabilities to support third-party services via API integration
