Investor Connect Podcast

Startup Boards -- Allocate Funds

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In preparing for Startup investing, you should determine up front how much you are going to invest. 

In general, it’s best to keep your startup investing to 3-5% of your discretionary investment funds.  

These are funds you can lose and not impact your lifestyle or other investments.  

Determine in advance how much you plan to invest. Use a five-year window.

Set up to access those funds for when you need them. 

If the funds are separated from the rest of your investments, it will be easier to manage the process.

The amount you invest per deal will determine what platforms you will use.

If you invest $5K, then you will most likely be on an online funding platform.

If you invest $25K, then you can join a group and invest with angel investors.

If you invest $50K, then you can join a syndicate.

If you invest $100K or more, then you can invest through investment banks.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
