Equitise

Description

Equitise is more than just a retail crowdfunding platform. We are partnering with the best financial backers in Australia and New Zealand to democratise the early stage investment ecosystem.

Equitise provides an alternative investment ecosystem for all investors. We make investing in high growth companies accessible, efficient and safe for all investors, from retail investors and Family Offices through to Angel investors and professional investors.

The Trans-Tasman Investment Platform: Equitise is the Trans-Tasman equity crowdfunding platform, offering global companies a way of raising capital in Australia and New Zealand.
Technology/platform: Traditional capital raising is time consuming and involves chasing paperwork and a small network of people. Through our platform, we streamline this process by facilitating the entire transaction from conception of the offer to funding, and can distribute the offer to a much broader audience.

For Companies, raising Equity Crowdfunding through Equitise is a low cost and more efficient method of raising capital. Companies can leverage our technology to offer shares to a broad audience through a frictionless investment process.

For Investors, the Equitise platform provides access to high growth, innovative investment opportunities, an asset class which until recently has been inaccessible to the public. With the recent changes in the regulatory approach in Australia and New Zealand, all Investors will have access to high quality early stage investing.

Syndicates: Syndicates allow angels and smaller investors to co-invest with VC's and investment clubs, in exchange for carry. Traditional equity crowdfunding involves direct investment in a company by an investor. Syndicated investment allows investors to participate in equity crowdfunding offers led by professional investors. The syndicated investment model sits within our equity crowdfunding technology and streamlines the traditional investment process for private investment groups. Syndicates enable private investment groups to fund their investments, share their investments with other investors in return for carry, get access to the Equitise Nominee – all whilst accessing the benefits of our technology.
