Bloomio is working on redesigning the venture capital industry. Bloomio provides a crowdfunding platform, that connects early-stage startups with individual investors and venture funds. The platform allows startup founders to raise capital by tokenizing equity and gives investors a possibility to trade startup stakes through a secure blockchain-based marketplace.
Traditional VC investors mainly focus on larger deal sizes of more than $100K, leaving small room for individual investors to enter the early stage startup market. Bloomio’s vision is to disrupt the traditional fund-raising model for startups by enabling individual investors to tap into the venture capital arena with a small ticket size starting from just around a hundred dollars.
To enter the platform, startups must either undergo a scoring process by 3rd party analysts or make specific disclosures so as to provide enough information to potential investors. Once listed on the Bloomio platform, a startup, instead of pitching VCs, can start its next investment round in just one mouse click, saving precious time and efforts for other tasks.
