Quick FAQs

Why do you charge venture investors - others don't?

Short answer: We are not a crowdfunding platform - we are wealth managers. 

The way crowdfunding platforms make money is they charge startups or private funds up to 7% to raise money for them. 

In our early days we started like that but we quickly realised that this approach was not optimised to get access to the best deals. 

The best startups are not short of suitors - they won't pay fees. And you definitely want exposure to the best startups - otherwise your venture investing simply won't work due to the high failure rates.

Long answer:

Startup investing is high risk high reward investing. It is also very non-linear investing. You should expect ~60% of your startup investments to fail, and all the returns to come from just a few deals.

In fact, 4.5% of invested capital in top venture capital funds made 60% of their returns.

To target the best returns and hopefully get into a future unicorn (private companies valued at more than $1Bn) we need to do a few things:

  1. Invest in the best deals
  2. Invest with top quality investors
  3. Invest frequently

Most of our good deals come though the network we've built up over the years. We are constantly looking for new deals in our network and go through hundreds of startups in our search for 0-2 investments we make each month. We have also invested alongside top venture capital funds in the industry, including Amadeus Partners, Hoxton Ventures and Speed Invest. These are Europe's top startup investors who have previously backed startup unicorns.

In a nutshell we can't charge startups because:

  1. if you charge startups you don't attract the top deals. These startups do not have any shortage of investors - so they are not going to go for an investor who charges them.
  2. if you charge startups you lose reputation among the elite investors in the Cur8 community. That then means you don't get this coveted deal flow and that means you lose out on your potential to find a unicorn. A very high number of unicorns will come from this top deal flow.
Why do you charge fees on private funds?

We want to ensure we pick the best funds for our investors and that our interests are completely aligned.

We are not brokers looking to sell you any private funds, we are wealth managers offering you a curated and vetted selection.

What's this profit share all about?

We have introduced a profit share to bring ourselves in line with the market.

Exit fees also give us an important tool to use when working with industry contacts. We can offer them a share of the exit fee as a way for them to send us the deals rather than someone else. This is again beneficial for investors.

When does it make sense to become a Member? You will typically make a saving if you become a Member when you are investing over £25,000 per annum. Membership does come with its wider perks though so do check those out.
Do I need to become a Member to invest? Not at all. Membership is suitable for those who invest larger amounts with us but we have many long-term investors who are not Members as well.
