There are times when you have an incredible idea for a startup, but when it comes to presenting it to investors, you realize that they do not share your vision. On the other hand, you have savings that you want to invest without going through the bureaucratic formalities of the banks, but the available options do not sound safe -waters with the Flower of Abundance-. Technology, through crowdfunding, provides us with a safe, interesting and developing answer for these two scenarios. If you are interested, but you don’t know where to turn, we give you some options that might interest you.
If your circulation is research, be it journalistic, scientific or of any kind, this is the platform for you. Investigga is an initiative created by young Mexicans who are aware of the hunger for research in the country and the lack of resources to carry it out. Here you can present your project, receive feedback and launch your research proposal along with your budget so that anyone can donate. Like most sites of this type, it has a reward system for backers depending on how much money they give to the project.
This page, in addition to being based on the crowdfunding model -through alliances with other sites-, means an Entrepreneurial Capital Fund for startups through the traditional investment model. It is important to say that this platform is limited to funding projects within specific sectors that are vital within the Mexican economy. The sectors that Trébola Capital supports are: automotive and aerospace, biotechnology, health, renewable energy and social impact, electronics and mechatronics, agrindustrial and Tic’s.
The appeal of this platform is that it brings benefits, both for those who propose the project, and for those who finance it. It is an online collective investment network in which you can upload a business proposal -becoming a maker- or invest in one of the options already published -becoming a player-. If the project is successful, the players can continue to invest to make it grow, thus creating a beneficial partnership for both the maker alike.
I lend you
In Yo te lend they do not seek to finance projects, but to get people out of trouble who need a loan and want to save the bureaucratic procedures of classic banking institutions. The benefit is also for the borrower, since they also receive a return. The interesting thing is that from the moment the investment is made, you have contact with the person who receives the loan, so there is no doubt that you will recover your money in spades.
