Crowdfunding: azionisti di startup e pmi con un clic - LaBissa.com

If you divide OpenTables $91 million in reservation revenue by its 120 million consumers, that comes out to $0.76 per consumer. Not bad for many internet businesses. Now lets look at equity crowdfunding . Ill use CircleUp as an example, and I welcome others in the comments section below. On our platform, investors can invest anywhere from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars per investment (the minimum investment is determined by the entrepreneur on a deal by deal basis). Additionally, across the 21 companies that we have helped raise more then $21 million for, we have seen a large portion of capital come from repeat investorsthat is, those who have made multiple investments on the platform. Our average investment depends on the deal but is typically five figuresfor this post lets assume $10,000. If the average investor only invests $10,000 per year on CircleUp (note this is not the actual average, just a hypothetical), it would be worth somewhere between $500 and $1,000 in revenue to CircleUp (our fee structure is based on the size of the raise).

Given the repeat investment rate, investors are often worth several thousands dollars per year to CircleUp. There are currently 8.6 million households that qualify as accredited investors , but only a few hundred thousand that today consider themselves angel investors. And the amount invested into private companies ($50 Billion in the form of equity) hasnt changed in a decade. Why isnt it growing? How could it, given that there has been no innovation (until the JOBS Act and equity crowdfunding) for 80 years? Before platforms like CircleUp existed, investors would have to spend time sourcing quality deal flow, which can (and often is) a full time job in itself. If you believe these marketplaces have the chance to supplement other parts of private investing (more broadly- Reg D investments), then it is important to note that the entire Reg D market is $1.3 trillion.

Del crowdfunding quale piattaforma di raccolta di investimenti per le startup e dei potenziali benefici per imprenditori e investitori derivanti dalla nuova regolamentazione si e discusso nel convegno promosso da Assolombarda in collaborazione con lo Studio Legale Osborne Clarke e Unicasim tenutosi oggi presso la sede degli imprenditori milanesi. Accrescere il livello competitivo delle nostre imprese attraverso l'innovazione tecnologica: e questa la formula per sostenere la ripresa della nostra economia. Lagenda digitale italiana gioca un ruolo centrale in tale rilancio, stimolando il processo di trasformazione digitale e mettendo in luce quel potenziale finora inespresso di innovazione e creativita", ha dichiarato Stefano Venturi, Responsabile Progetto attrazione investimenti e semplificazione Assolombarda. Oggi la vera sfida per le imprese italiane e la ridefinizione o la creazione di nuovi modelli di business abilitati dallinnovazione tecnologica e supportati da modalita collaborative e social basate su Internet, ha aggiunto Venturi. Il crowdfunding, grazie a un quadro normativo ormai vicino alla meta, rappresentera uno strumento chiave per finanziare nuove idee, estendendo lecosistema virtuoso dell'innovazione. Ne potranno beneficiare le start up, ma anche le piccole e micro imprese, per finanziare modelli di business innovativi. Il crowdfunding, un'idea nata dalla politica americana nell'era Obama, potra diventare un importante fattore per il re-start delle nostre imprese e un'opportunita anche per la Pubblica Amministrazione e il sistema bancario italiano". Le startup sono il futuro della nostra imprenditoria e delle nostre PMI, ha dichiarato Alvise Biffi, Presidente della Piccola Impresa di Assolombarda, in questo senso il crowdfunding, che e un vero strumento di 'contribuzione diffusa' che puo coniugare l'innovativita delle start up alle disponibilita di investimento del pubblico, deve essere considerato uno strumento flessibile di aiuto alla creazione e consolidamento di nuove imprese. E' quindi importantissimo che tale flessibilita, sebbene regolamentata, venga mantenuta. Lequity crowdfunding, raccogliendo risorse dalla folla, rappresenta un modo nuovo di finanziare le idee innovative, e, come ogni forma di alternative financing e un elemento importante per garantire la stabilita dei sistemi finanziari sia in tempi di crisi che in prospettiva, ha detto Alberto Baban, Presidente Consiglio Regionale Piccola Industria di Confindustria Veneto.

Both VC firms and angel investors typically try to add value beyond their capital, such as through introductions and strategic advice. Venture capital firms typically invest after the seed round to provide larger amounts of growth capital in what is also referred to as "Series A round." Some VC firms will also invest at the seed stage, side-by-side with angel investors. They are likely to make additional investments if the company is growing rapidly. This is known as "doubling-down on the winners" and takes place through subsequent financings, termed simply Series B, Series C, Series D, etc. Companies like Twitter, for example, raised a Series G before going public earlier this year. A venture capital firm makes money by owning equity in the companies it invests in, which usually have a novel technology. When a venture capitalist invests in a startup, the expectation is that the company is going to build at least a $1 billion business, very quickly.
