MicroVentures, One of the First Venture Capital Investment Banks

We do what venture capital firms do and more. We find startups that may have incredible potential, perform complete due diligence, and enable our investors to purchase an equity stake in these companies with online investments. But that is where the similarities end.

What makes MicroVentures different is that we are a full service online platform for venture capital investments that is open to the public. We take the best parts of Venture Capital (connections, research, deal flow, mentoring, money management) and combine it with the best aspects of Equity Crowdfunding (open access, ease of use, diversification) to give investors the best of both worlds.

Gone are the days when you needed a personal invitation from a friend just for the chance to risk $100,000, at a minimum, on a single deal. MicroVentures has turned that model on its head. We match startups seeking capital with angel investors looking to invest as little as $100.

We offer investment opportunities through MicroVenture Marketplace, Inc., a FINRA-registered broker-dealer and First Democracy VC, a FINRA-registered funding portal.

Why Use MicroVentures?


We have been a Venture Capital Investment Platform for 6 years, and in that time have offered over 160 opportunities, and helped companies raise over $100M. Our veteran team is experienced and well respected in venture capital circles; we have successful startup investing experience and several exits. The MicroVentures Platform has already been accepting non-accredited investors under existing SEC regulations.

Deal Flow

At MicroVentures, in the past, we have given investors the opportunity to invest in startups alongside Venture Capital firms and angel investors. Most of the companies we list have graduated from an accelerator like Y Combinator or 500 Startups, have proven founders, and experienced angels who have already invested. In under 6 years, we have presented our investors with over 160 opportunities.

Due Diligence

Investing in startups is risky, but it's currently much riskier than it needs to be because many of the "equity crowdfunding" platforms simply don't do any due diligence on the companies they list. MicroVentures completely rejects that idea. We believe in screening startups with multiple rounds of due diligence and professional analysis. Further, we provide an online summary to help investors understand the investment opportunity. Our rigorous screening process causes us to reject far more startups than we accept. In fact, it's easier to get into Harvard than it is to get listed on MicroVentures.

Customer Service

Even with all of our screening and due diligence, investing in startups is still very risky. We want to help you understand if startup investing is suitable for you. In fact, we love helping investors so much, our phone number is on the site. It actually works — call it, and our Investor Relations Team will pick up and directly speak with you. MicroVentures’ professionals take the time to educate our investors on the risks associated with startup investing. We won’t poke and prod you toward a startup investment opportunity. Our high-touch service has helped clients find an effective balance between service and technology, minimizing investment confusion and frustration throughout the process.

MicroVentures does not require the kind of large investments that have traditionally closed off the world of early stage startup investing. Instead, both accredited and non-accredited investors can invest with as little as $100. For investors of all stripes, this type of access to startup investing in private companies is virtually unheard in traditional Venture Capital investing.
