In Venture Presentation Open Angel ForumPresentation Transcript
Open Angel Forum
Everyday people in the US and abroad have given up to 37.6 Billion dollars in the form of Aid relief and we have yet to see any measurable results
Additionally, over 500,000 individuals all over the world have given as little as 25$ to fund microloans through sites such as Kiva, Microplace, DonorsChoose and Opportunity International and still see low measures of impact
We need a form of giving that can be impactful and accountable
The Solution: InVenture
InVenture is a 2 Part Platform:
InVenture Fund is a micro venture capital.
We work with local microfinance institutions (MFIs) & organizations (NGOs) to connect small business owners to debt & interest free sources of financial and knowledge capital
2. InVentureFund.org is our website where we allow YOU to become an Inventure Investor and purchase equity in the companies we invest in
Our transparent platform allows you to choose from several different individuals; detailed reports on our businesses and entrepreneurs will help you make your decision.
What is InVenture
