Often a good investment opportunity comes your way. The issue though is it will possibly cost more than what you can afford, yet you really want to do invest. This can apply to either an investor looking to profit, or an investor looking to start a company. In many cases what most will do, is pool resources together, and corporately invest into the opportunity. This is a good way to handle a large investment. It's a little like ants, one ant may not be able to carry a large insect on its own, but together in large numbers, they will move that insect a great distance. In the same way what one investor cannot afford alone, he can afford if the resources are pooled together. That is what equity crowdfunding is all about.
Equity crowdfunding is the process whereby people invest in an early-stage unlisted company in exchange for shares. A shareholder has partial ownership of a company and stands to profit should the company do well. The opposite is also true, so if the company fails investors can lose some, or all, of their investment. Previously only wealthy individuals, venture capitalists and business angels, could invest in startups. Equity crowdfunding platforms have helped democratise the investment process by opening the door to a larger pool of potential investors dubbed “the crowd”. Equity investing itself has been around for years but has tended to be the preserve of wealthy business angel investors who are able to invest more than £25,000 in a number of deals.
