Does your startup need help crowdfunding seed investment capital to launch or expand a new business in Austin? The Austin Crowdfunding Incubator (https://www.meetup.com/austin-crowdfunding-incubator/) will teach startups how to raise seed investment capital using Title III, Reg. CF or Title IV, Reg. A+ the new equity crowdfunding rules recently passed by the SEC as a part of the Jump Start Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act signed into law by President Obama.
If you want to learn how to become a micro venture capitalist and begin investing in promising new startups, please join our Texas Crowdfunding Incubator (http://www.meetup.com/austin-crowdfunding-network/). This meetup will connect the 20 million unaccredited investors in Texas with leading Texas Crowdfunding Portals (TCPs) that will allow investors to shop for equity, debt and convertible note investment opportunities.
These crowdfunding portals or sites will allow anyone in Texas with a creative product, service or business idea to build a crowdfunding profile on a crowdfunding investment site and then market their equity investment opportunity to both accredited investors and unaccredited investors in Texas to raise enough money get their businesses off the ground.
And for the first time in 80 years, friends, family members and/or perfect strangers can invest up to $5,000 per startup to purchase private equity shares, debt or convertible notes. If the company becomes successful and goes public, early investors can reap the same type of return-on-investment as early investors and venture capitalists who first supported Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and many others.
Small investments in those companies are now worth billions of dollars. Obviously, there is a lot of risk and many startups fail. Investors need to learn how to shop for good deals and learn smart investment strategies by watching and following seasoned angel and seed capital investment pros.
To get started, read through all of the links outlined below and read as "Investment Books for Dummies" as possible to learn the pros and cons of investing before writing a check to anyone. Never invest any money that you cannot afford to lose!
