Most Australian residents who are 18 years and older can invest in startups, scale-ups and other growing private Australian businesses presented by us. However, all investors must verify their identity. We will guide you through the process when you create a profile.
Investors are categorised into two groups:
1. Retail investors: Can invest up to $10,000 per company per 12-month period. Retail Investors have a 5 business day cooling-off period. During this period, they can cancel the investment for any reason. After the cooling-off period, retail investors are unable to withdraw their investment.
2. Wholesale investors: Can invest more than $10,000 per year per company in Australia. Investors need to provide evidence to confirm their wholesale investor status and have no cooling off period.
Wholesale investors need to provide an accountant's certificate to evidence that the investor has income of at least $250,000 for each of the past two years or has more than $2.5 million in net assets.
