How you make money
NextSeed is the only platform in operation that focuses solely on debt financing as most other platforms are more equity focused. It's like buying bonds instead of stocks. Debt investors typically receive regular cash payments tied to an interest rate or total return. They also offer an Equity based investing option. Once you have made an investment in a startup, you will hold private equity in that company. The value of your stake in the company may increase or decrease over time depending on how the company performs. You will receive cash or stock return on your investment if and when a positive liquidity event occurs – for example, as a result of the company going public or getting acquired by another company. Please bear in mind that startup investments are long-term investments that may take years to become liquid, if they do at all.
How NextSeed makes money
NextSeed charges companies 5-10% of the total raised amount. On any interest or equity distributions paid out to investors, NextSeed charges investors a 2% fee.
