You begin by reviewing the offers that have met our listing criteria. We only work with selected digital and technology companies.
You can be confident that we have conducted compulsory checks and our own subjective assessment of each offer.
Your decision to back an innovative Kiwi company makes you an angel investor. Your investment is kept safe in a separate trust account until the offer closes.
At closing, the capital raised is disbursed to the company net of fees. Your shares are issued, the share registry is notified and the shares appear in your portfolio.
AlphaCrowd is the equity crowdfunding platform for digital and technology businesses. Innovation is strong in New Zealand and we believe that Kiwi developers, engineers, hackers, inventors, scientists and visionaries should be supported locally in their global ambitions. Our industry focus makes us relevant to serious technology investors.
Equity crowd funding is risky. Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of businesses is very speculative and carries high risks. You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship. New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using this facility. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment. Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.
