We have received some inquiries into why Return on Change is focusing on specific types of startups. Namely:
- High Tech/ Web Tech
- Social Ventures
The answer simplified can be summarized into two reasons:
RoC is focused on helping startups that will change the world
All entrepreneurship and startups are important and will potentially have a great positive impact on the economy. The reason RoC has focused on these niche industries is because we believe that these types of startups really have the ability to change the way we live our lives or the way we interact and view the world around us. Even in the recent history that is the Web 2.0 phase, we have seen the internet and technology change our lives dramatically in a relatively short time span. With the proliferation and advancement of technology growing at an exponential rate, RoC is super excited to see what the next 5 years hold for us!
This is true for CleanTech, BioTech and Social Ventures as well! With a big focus of business realigning itself to better the world as well as the future of society, all of these three industries have made huge advancements, but the really exciting stuff is still yet to come and crowdinvesting will accelerate this amazing process!
Crowdinvestment Capital will go a LONG way with these startups
The investment revolution that will occur when the SEC rule making is complete will surely assist many small businesses in growth and expansions. However, with the startups mentioned above, RoC believes that the amounts permitted under equity crowdfunding (>=$1.0 MM) will literally determine the life or death of the business or transform a small idea into a global revolution. Many of these startups stand on the border of idea and reality and it often does not require huge investments amounts to tip them into the world of reality and success! We are so excited to see how many of these startups we can bring to life!
So those are the more prominent reasons RoC has specifically focused on these types of startups. What do YOU want to invest in?
