Your investment platform allows you to choose businesses you feel passionate about and be part of their progress as they grow – it’s the simplest way to gain part-ownership of a business.
It involves investing in return for equity and if the business succeeds, then the value of the company will increase and the shares owned, will be worth more than what was initially invested.
If it then makes an exit at a higher value than invested, investors receive a return on their investment.
