How is Round One different from other crowdfunding platforms?



10:46 AM on October 10, 2022

Round One focuses on debt and equity offerings, unlike donation and rewards-based platforms. 


Investors who crowdinvest typically expect a return on their investments in the form of capital gains and dividend payments for equity or interest payments for debt-type crowdinvestments. Fundraises can have a charity or rewards-based component, but we are currently unable to launch a solely charity or rewards-based campaign for now.


An investor's ownership in an equity crowdfunded company is defined by the form and characteristics of securities issued to them by the fundraisers.

Funds raised through our platform will most likely come from individuals, qualified investors, and fund managers who want an equity stake in the companies listed with us.
