When it comes to your startup, there are two specific individuals you'll be dealing with: brokers and dealers. The broker sells securities for clients, while the dealer sells securities for their company. As the name implies, the private placement broker dealer is able to wear both professional hats, those of broker and dealer. Here are just four of the reasons you need to work with a private placement broker dealer for your startup.
They Have Access to Angel Investors
If you're in the process of creating a startup, you're going to need plenty of investment capital. Unfortunately, it's not always easy to obtain that much-needed investment capital, especially if you're not already established. One way to obtain investment capital for a startup is through what's known as an angel investor. An angel investor is someone with a substantial amount of money who is open to investing capital in small startups. However, it's not always easy to find these angel investors. That's where the private placement broker dealer comes into the picture. Private placement broker dealers have well-established relationships with angel investors and can work to put you together with one who will help you get your startup off the ground.
They Can Handle Both Aspects of Your Investments
If you're going to be working on a private placement for your investment, you're going to be better off with a private placement broker dealer rather than working with two separate individuals. This is particularly important during the initial stages of your private placement. Your broker dealer will be able to handle both aspects of your investment and startup, including packaging the placement to receive maximum investment capital.
They're Able to Help You with Your Own Paperwork
While you're in the process of putting together your private placement for your startup, you're going to be doing a lot of paperwork. That paperwork will require meticulous attention to detail. Your broker dealer will be able to help you with that paperwork, including providing assistance with things such as the official proposal, sales presentations, business summaries, and the memorandum regarding private placement of the startup.
They'll Do Their Due- Diligence
When it comes to handing over large sums of money, investors want to know that their investment will be protected. They want to know that their investments are sound. Working with a broker dealer will provide your investors with the peace of mind they'll need before signing on with your startup. That's because they'll know that your broker dealer took the time to do full due-diligence prior to approaching the angel investors with a proposal.
