What do I get for my Investment?
If you are new to Funderbeam, it may not be clear exactly what you get in return for your investment.
Funderbeam offers asset-backed investments. This means that for your investment, you will receive either a portion of a company in the form of equity or an asset such as Convertible notes (which will convert into equity).
In most cases, a company will offer equity for the investment. This equity is then held by a special entity created to solely hold this investment on your behalf. As an investor, you will receive a digital certificate of this investment allowing you to keep track of it, and to trade on The Marketplace.
The special entity can be either a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) or a Nominee structure, this is explained in more detail here.
