Can I raise debt or equity and how is the valuation determined?
Yes, as the entrepreneur, you can decide if you want to offer debt or equity and what the terms of the offering are. We can provide some guidance and best practices. Regarding valuation, you determine the valuation and justification. This might be based on comparisons to other companies in your industry or the history of your company. Investors are smart and they tend of have a good sense of what something is worth and it’s potential. Be reasonable, and your chances of success increase.
Is it expensive to raise money on Jumpstart Micro?
No, we keep the costs low. You can join for free and build your plans over time. When you are ready, you submit your plan for review. Before you go live there is a small listing fee and if you are successful there is a success fee at the end. We also help you from beginning to end to keep legal and other costs low. Investors are charged a very small transaction fee with their investment to cover the bank processing costs.

Small listing fee of $500 (>$200k raised) - $1,000 (<$400k raise) and if you are successful there is a success fee at the end of 6% (example: $100,000 raised would be $6,000)
Investors are charged a small transaction fee of $12
What’s local investing all about?
The goal of the American JOBS ACT is to help create jobs, and innovation. To accomplish this, Title III has opened the door for people to make small investments in promising companies. It’s not always about the next big tech company with a high valuation. Sometimes, it’s about investing in a local business, supporting your neighbor, helping your community and being able to effect the success of a business. If you invest in a local business, you will likely become a customer, tell your friends and help to make it a success.
How does Jumpstart Micro help me as an Entrepreneur?
We give you a place to effectively tell your story. The story includes your service or product, business plans, financials, management team, and future. We provide a step by step process to walk you through everything and to make your investment pitch. This includes guides and best practices on how to create awareness for your venture, video, graphics presentations and more. On the site you can respond to investor questions and interact, which we highly encourage.
How does Jumpstart Micro help me as an Investor?
The rules have changed and now anyone can consider making small investments in startup companies. Until now, this was limited to high net worth people, and other groups such as venture capital firms. This is not without risk. These are private companies and you should only consider investing what you can afford to lose. Click here to see a list of disclosures. We don’t recommend or endorse any of the companies on our portal. Our job is to provide a place where investors can see opportunities, evaluate them and make investment decisions. We also ask questions about your interest and will send you periodic opportunities which we think may interest you. Click here to see a list of disclosures.
What happens if a company doesn’t reach its goal?
Companies can set a minimum and maximum target goal. Investors review everything and if they decide to invest, it’s as simple as clicking Invest Now and providing payment information. All investments go directly to a Bank Escrow Account within a short period of time. At no times does Jumpstart Micro handle any funds. The Escrow agreement tells the bank to hold the funds collected until the end of the fund raising which is when the maximum target or deadline is met. If the minimum is never met, all funds collected are returned to the investors.
Can I register as both an Entrepreneur and Investor?
Yes, you can, but you need to register using two different email addresses.
What’s a good strategy for a Company to raise money?

There is a misconception in the market that startups need to raise lots of money at high valuations. It wasn’t always this way, but a lack of capital available for startups has forced them to think big to attract venture capital.

Raise what you need to operate your business and reach milestones. Remember, you can raise up to $1M each year under Title III and raise more than once each year. For example, you might raise $100,000 to get to a prototype of your product at $2.00 per share. Then raise $250,000 6 months later at $4.00 per share. With each round and proof of reaching milestones and achieving success your business value has increased and you can raise more at a high valuation with less dilution on the current shareholders.
