INVESTOR - 2012
CircleUp is an online investment platform that provides angel investors free access to direct investments in high-growth consumer product and retail private companies that were previously difficult to identify and access. For retail and consumer product entrepreneurs, it offers an efficient way to access a network of sophisticated investors as well as value added partners. Typical investments on CircleUp are in food, personal care, pet product, apparel or retail/restaurant companies in their early stages of business looking to raise $100,000 to $2 million in financing. Investors can review a curated list of private company investments, ask questions to the management team, request product samples and complete their private company investment online.
