Investor's Den > How to invest
Be inspired for all the right reasons. Invest into early-stage businesses that have the potential to be the next big thing.
You can begin building your investment portfolio from $5,000 upwards and own shares in the businesses. This means you'll share in the success if there is a buyout from later stage investors or an IPO (Initial Public Offering). Occasionally, this can happen quickly, but generally these are long term investments.
You can view pitches online that have been chosen from the hundreds that we talk to every month and have carefully screened.
Invest alongside "lead" investors who have conducted their own due diligence and can use their expertise and connections to take the business to the next level. This is how we have built up our strong track record and why over 90% of our funded deals are still out there.
Complete your investor profile and tell us your preferences so we can supply the most relevant investment opportunities.
We'll call you to get to know you better and find your level of experience, what involvement you are looking for and support you through the process before and after you invest.
If you're new to investing or simply want to learn more, we have a series of masterclasses where we cover topics like due diligence, valuations and tax reliefs for investors.

TRACK YOUR INVESTMENT AND SHARE IN THE SUCCESS
Once you are a shareholder, you will receive updates from the company, either via email or our investor relations portal. As part of the company, you will share in the excitement as they scale the business.
If the company is bought by a larger company, later stage investors (VCs or institutions) or through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the stock market, then you may receive a return on your shares.
