Our answers to the most-asked questions
How does Gateway Ventures work?
That’s hard to answer in two sentences, but we’ll try! Our goal is that you have a great investment experience from the moment you get to know a company until you sell your shares.
For this, we select the best startups and often times fight to get into competitive deals with attractive co-investors.
For the approx. 12 of 1000 startups that make it through, we prepare all the necessary information, so you don’t have to go through everything. We will notify you via email of new opportunities and via the platform, you’ll be able to dive deeper into any given startup, meet the founders and invest.
Lastly, when “closing the round” we talk to the lawyers and make sure to get the fairest deal for both sides.
Once the investment is through, we are in regular contact with the start-up and you, the investors, to provide the reporting and see how both sides can continue benefiting from each other.
Do I have to pay to join Gateway Ventures?
As an investor via Gateway Ventures, you pay no membership fees, no up front due diligence fees and are not required to commit capital upfront. All investment sourcing and due diligence work is covered by Gateway Ventures.
Only if you decide to invest, we charge a one-off access fee. Depending on your ticket size the one-off fee to access the startup is as follows:
7% access fee < EUR 50.000,- 5% access fee ≥ EUR 50.000,-
In case of an exit, we will charge 10% and 7% respectively on the net profit of your investment.
Why? We have a professional VC team, that literally hunts the best deals for you. Additionally, you will be serviced across the entire investment lifecycle of your startup. Lastly, our fee covers all initial transactional costs. So no need to worry about any lawyer or notary costs.
Why is 10.000€ the minimum investment sum?
Our goal was to make it 10 times more accessible than a VC fund, in which you can typically start to invest with €100,000.
Additionally, we needed to find a balance between accessibility for investors and what the start-ups and co-investors would accept.
We are already allowing smaller tickets if we see that your value add to the startup is large enough.
