How does CannaFundr work?
CannaFundr is a unique online investment marketplace for companies in the cannabis industry to gain access to capital. Accredited investors are able to become equity holders in venture funds with the Syndicate Leader as the general manager of each fund. Each of these, then, funds a specific, pre-screened private company. Accredited investors gain access through our easy-to-use web platform, which allows them to browse and screen fund investment opportunities.
Investments are processed and tracked via the CannaFundr investor onboarding process, which uses the leading online document processing platform and the Federal Reserve Bank system. This is done to ensure safe and secure transactions for the investors. The result: Deserving companies get the capital they need, and investors get unprecedented access to the opportunities they want while building a lower risk diversified portfolio.
Low minimums: Investments are made in funds set up for investing in one company, and, therefore, the minimum check amounts can be as much 10 to 40 times smaller than typical angel investments with minimum investments as little as $2,500. This provides an easier way to build a diversified portfolio.
