Investing in unlisted companies can be extremely exciting and rewarding for many reasons. Investments are made for three primary reasons:
- To generate a financial return:
Remember, many of the businesses listed of GrowthFunders are SEIS and EIS compliant, which means investors can benefit from some very generous tax reliefs.
- To put something back:
Many investors are experienced business people and entrepreneurs in their own right. They want to help other talented entrepreneurs realise their potential.
- To support someone:
Many of the businesses will be supported by friends and family. Listing and investing via GrowthFunders formalises this type of investment in a cost-effective way and opens the opportunity to a wider market.
