Our investor community invests alongside seasoned venture and angel investors by using the Syndicate Model. A Syndicate is an organized group of investors that combine their funds to invest in a specific deal. When you invest in a company on Crowdmatrix, you join a syndicate of investors for that specific deal, which is represented by a Lead Investor.
A Lead Investor is an experienced venture or angel investor that is at the head of each deal on Crowdmatrix. Investors can be confident that the Lead has researched and vetted the investment opportunity, negotiated a fair term sheet, and invested the first chunk of their own money into the deal.
There are no fees to open an investor account or make an investment on Crowdmatrix. Our interests are aligned with our investors, we only make money when they do. A carry is only paid if and when there is a return on the investment. The carry usually ranges from 15-20% of the return and is set by the Lead Investor.
