Who is an Investor?
Any individual or firm who provides capital to a start-up, whether they be an individual angel, an angel group, an investor firm, a grant making foundation or a crowd-funding website.
Why join TANRC?
For the last several years, the level of investment made as seed capital has decreased significantly because of rising levels of fraud by start-up ecosystem participants, inflated valuations, and fears of poor returns. Investors are leery of investing in start-up firms outside their circle, as doing so leaves them investing “blind” without knowing enough about the founding team’s track record, accountability, or trustworthiness. This leaves many entrepreneurs under-capitalized. This needs to change! This Wild, Wild West approach to our start-up ecosystem needs to pivot!As FINRA does for the publicly traded firms, TANRC is uniquely positioned to help the privately funded firms. In joining TANRC and promising to abide by community set processes and standards, you will be engaging with individuals and firms that have made the same promise. Let’s all join together to build a better way!
