Investment platform Equerest where entrepreneurs can present their projects to accredited investors, opened order taking for all entrepreneurs.
The main focus is on projects in the real sector: HoReCa, alternative energy and agricultural sector, but also accept applications from e-commerce and technology startups, AIN informs (RU).
Any entrepreneur looking for investment can put a project on the site. Accept both projects at the stage of operating business, and at the stage of an idea or a prototype. The application should detail the business and the purpose for raising funds.
Equerest team evaluates startup, helps with finalizing the financial model, presentation, and put application on the platform in a format suitable for investors. For that service, it charges a fee of $100. Although, if the project is socially significant, or has the potential to change the market, the application may be published free of charge.
If an investor finds a suitable project, he discusses financing terms directly with the owner. At the same time, a platform is a party to the treaty to find investment and protects the interests of entrepreneurs.
The purpose of the site for entrepreneurs is to help them in the presentation of the project and fundraising. For investors, the service solves the problem of standardization of the incoming flow of applications and reduces the time for analysis. For these reasons Equerest developed a scoring model based on statistical data obtained in the course of the projects.
“Now Equerest has about 40 private investors, and we monthly increase this number,” says Equerest CEO Alexander Buzsky.
