The Crowd Angel, the first online platform allowing you to easily invest in technology start-ups

Venture capital firm Inveready has launched a beta version of The Crowd Angel, a tool that will make it easier to invest in a selection of ICT firms and subsequently follow up on ventures.

Barcelona-based venture capital firm Inveready, which specialises in funding technology-based companies, has launched a beta version of The Crowd Angel, an innovative online platform allowing people to invest in a series of previously selected start-ups and keep track of their progress. 

The concept behind The Crowd Angel fuses crowdfunding (collective funding through micro-donations) with business angeling, offering a new tool that aims to make it easier to invest in start-ups with growth potential. 

The platform's users will be introduced to a selection of start-ups looking for funding, including all the essential information to decide whether or not to invest. Donations start at 3,000 euros, with total transactions ranging from 100,000 to 300,000 euros. 

Every month The Crowd Angel will focus on a maximum of three companies, previously selected and ordered depending on the entrepreneurs' proposals. The investment process is automated using standard contracts and regular professional follow-up reports are drawn up on the start-ups involved. 

For the time being the tool will focus on companies from the ICT sector, and its founders hope to complete 5-7 transactions during the platform's first year in business.
