Is Australia moving fast enough? OurCrowd’s Danna Mann on ABC Radio National

An estimated $8-billion was crowdfunded last year globally and interest is surging. But is Australia moving fast enough? On her recent trip to Austrlia, OurCrowd’s Partner and Head of Investor Relations, Danna Hochstein Mann, was interviewed by radio presenter Geraldine Doogue on ABC Radio National’s “Saturday Extra” (Australian Broadcasting Corporation). In the interview, Danna discusses equity crowdfunding, investment opportunities in startups, and Australia’s role in the global market. Crowdsourcing equity to help entrepreneurs grow their business is rapidly taking off. Social technology platforms in particular are making it easier to raise equity capital. But are Australian investors and regulators keeping up? .

Lessons from Passover: The 4 Sons of Angel Investing

With the holiday of Passover ready to drop at the end of this week, it offers a good time to reflect. One of the best known sections of the Passover ritual meal is the recitation of the “4 Sons”. These prototypical characters represent all of us — different types of people, each with their own types of questions that stem from our experiences and individualized views of the world. Each son asks his own question. Instead of providing an overarching singular answer to these sons’ questions, the Passover Hagaddah answers the 4 sons by addressing the subtext behind the questioner himself (and not just the question itself). Of course, while enjoying the holiday, we’re focused on the experience with our friends and family, but we’re also investors at heart. I couldn’t help but transpose these 4 sons and their questions to the investing world and in the process, address some key tenets core to angel investing and our crowd investing model. So, here it goes… OurCrowd’s 4 Sons (of Angel Investing) The Wise Son: What does the wise son...

How do I make money investing in startups?

I wish investing in a startup was as easy as “buy low, sell high“, but it’s a bit more complex. Angel investors must consider a variety of factors when they put their capital to work in an early stage company like: Startup valuation: Figuring out how much a startup is worth is as much an art as it is a science. Choosing the right founders: Team plays a critical role in a startup’s success. Investors want to invest in successful founders. Portfolio management: What’s the right number of startups to hold in a portfolio? (Hint: Kauffman Foundation research says at least 6). Taxes: You gotta pay Uncle Sam at some point, right? and lots more…  With all this in mind, a startup investor has to juggle lots of things at once — but ultimately, it’s all about the money. How do I make money investing in startups? As OurCrowd and other equity crowdfunding startups democratize early stage investing, we get asked a lot about how investors make money in startups. Basically, there are 4 ways a startup investor can...
