Getting started is easy. Here are a few caveats you should know before investing as a foreign investor on Spaced Ventures:
- Each offer may or may not allow for foreign investors
- Foreign investors may be subject to higher investment minimum
- Only wires and credit card payments are accepted (no ACH payments)
- You will be required to upload an image of a valid passport for KYC (Know Your Customer)
Head over to the sign-up URL and fill out the required information to sign up and start investing. You may also choose to sign up with Google or LinkedIn.
Open the confirmation email we sent you and verify your email address (if you didn't get the verification, please check your spam or "promotions" tab for Gmail). If you used Google or LinkedIn sign-up, you can skip this step.
Please note: this confirmation email could take 4-5 minutes. If you have requested multiple emails, only the most recent link will be valid.
Log in using the email and password combination you used when entering your information in Step 1.
Click "Yes" to confirm you have read through and understand each risk statement, then click "Start Investing."
The Offers page will display all available investments.
To make an investment, click on an issuer card, then click "Invest".
Complete the required information (this is only necessary for your first investment on the platform). International investors may be permitted to participate in the offer depending on the offer.
Calculate your investment limit and state whether you qualify as an accredited investor. If you do, you will have no limit. See How to Use the Investment Calculator if you need additional help.
Fill in your desired "Investment Amount" and add a new payment method. For now, we only accept wire transfers*, and credit card payments.
*international wires are subject to a $45 fee
E-sign your signature in DocuSign (must match your name on file), then click "Finish"
Wait for an email confirming your investment. We will let you know once your payment has been made, received, and successfully committed. To learn more about investment statuses, refer to the article: "How do I know if my investment was successful?"
