    Invest in start up?

    Afternoon all,

    Properties investments are expensive, do you ever consider investmenting your money into new start up? Please share your experiences? I’ve have invested some money on crowcube.

    Thanks

    Many property projects are SPV's i.e. start ups - the people behind the project might well have experience in property and developed many so this start up would be as good as the project itself mostly with a little bit dependant on how good the people are behind the project - checking all the numbers in detail.

    Can't really speak about other business's other than you'd have to know both the business you're investing into and the people you're investing into plus skills to analyse the proposals financials to be happy to invest.

    You can take your chance mind a little like penny shares if investing small shares on crowd platforms - but be happy / prepared to lose your money as often higher risk.

    If you have spare cash, pay tax and want to invest in other peoples business then SEIS and EIS are viciously efficient ways of doing so...I assume you are doing so via CrowdCube?

    An intro in case you haven't seen it https://www.angelsden.com/seis-tax-relief/

    You need to find investments to invest in - there are lots of Angel type websites and lots of 'investment clubs' so you can learn the ropes, share Due Diligence and best practice etc.

    VCTs are another option but you can only use current years allowance (which maybe a problem as you probably won't know exactly how much your tax bill will be) whereas EIS/SEIS can use prior year. Its all very time consuming to due the DD etc.

    If you invest in American startups then you won't get EIS / SEIS...if you are a UK citizen with a tax bill thats a bad idea.

    Some US stuff here - but I wouldn't touch as (S)EIS makes much more sense for me: https://crowdsourcingweek.com/blog/top-10-usa-crowdfunding-platforms/
