    Investor’s info

    As you well know, finding perspective projects for investment is not an easy thing. Many investors waste their funds because of the lack of decent facilities for investments, which provide the desired yield.

    IVFC with its partners is constantly searching, carefully selecting projects, providing assistance in their improvement in order to provide investors with high quality realistic projects with significant growth prospects. We are working with early stage (pre-starting, starting, initial growth, expansion) projects of different industry sectors from various regions of Russia and near abroad. The amount of investments required may be from $ 20000 to several million dollars.

    Investors often run business themselves and have the skills necessary to manage the invested companies. If your business experience is limited, you should consider the possibility of joint investment with a more experienced investor. For this purpose we create the community, "MEA innovative elevator”, carrying out collective investments.

    We invite to cooperation not only private investors (angel investors), but also venture capital funds, corporate venture capital investors and others interested in investing in early stage projects.

    Investor accreditation gives you the right to receive information about our projects, as well as the opportunity to participate in ongoing activities. You must complete the application form. Your personal data is unavailable for viewing, and under no circumstances can be transferred to third parties without your consent.

    Following the accreditation, the Investor will always be able to get up-to-date information about our projects. If you take an interested in some project, you can request additional information, and if you expose the interest to hold talks with the author after becoming familiar with the project, we can organize the negotiations.

    Once in two or three months we hold a presentation, where the authors and businessmen present their projects to potential investors. The projects are then informally debated.

    Project "Packaging" services fee, which is usually 5% of the total investment, is to be paid after the contract is signed. If there is lack of own funds, this fee is included in total amount of the investments required.
