Microventures is an online-based micro VC that offers you their network of angel investors in exchange for a number of set fees: $100 signup, $250 to conduct due diligence on your company, 10% in completion fees, and another potential 10% in carried interest if your funding goals are exceeded.
You can apply for any stage of funding you require, with no set limits on funds (though do remember these are private investors and not billion dollar capitalists). It certainly isn’t the cheapest platform, but startups can sleep a little better knowing they’re paying more to overcome barriers that are present on other crowdfunding-type sites. Their professional investors and DD experts determine whether your business is viable, then seek out and find the angels who invest in your kind of project. Some of their more notable investments include 500 Startups, App.io, Betable, Birchbox, Bloom Energy, Box, Cloudera, DocuSign, Dropbox, Facebook (IPO), Lyft, Pinterest, Spotify, Stitch, Twitter (IPO), and Yelp among others.
