新加坡首家股权与资本众筹平台FundedHere正式获批

FundedHere是一家基于股权众筹,同时从事债务众筹的平台,主要面向东南亚和中国的创业公司。该公司在新加坡成立。

日前,FundedHere获得了由新加坡金融管理局颁发的资本市场服务资格证,使得该公司能够根据证券期货法的规定从事证券服务。

创业公司能够通过在FundedHere平台上展示商业创意,并借此获得债务形式或股权形式的种子轮投资或天使投资。当创业公司进一步发展成熟之后,它们可以寻找更多传统意义上的风险资本或者私募筹资。

该平台上进行股权或债务众筹项目规模的起点最低的有5000新加坡元(约合3700美元)。

FundedHere在一份声明中提及,该公司会从超过100家创业公司中进行筛选,这些公司大多是新加坡注册公司,然后筛选出大约10家拥有进行众筹融资潜力的公司进行短期项目展示。

公司首席执行官Michael Tee表示:"我们的战略目标是依托新加坡较为完善的监管框架,帮助区域内的创业公司筹集资金,让新加坡成为国际性的金融口岸。我们将和创业公司、企业孵化器、风投公司以及新加坡教育科研机构开展紧密的合作,也会将业务发展至印度尼西亚、越南、菲律宾和中国。"

只有合格投资者才获准投资平台上陈列的项目。根据新加坡法律,个人合格投资者必须拥有至少200万新元的个人净资产(不含个人居所在内),或者年收入达到30万新元(20万美元)以上。公司合格投资者必须拥有至少1000万新元(740万美元)的净资产。

FundedHere的短期目标是今年年底之前拥有至少1000个注册的合格投资者。其长期目标是吸引新加坡前10%的合格投资者在平台注册。

尽管近些年来众筹业务在美国和欧洲形成了数十亿美元的行业规模,亚洲的很多类似平台却是基于奖励或者捐助性质的。在这些平台上,某家公司或者非盈利组织往往为投资者或捐助人提供某种激励来进行筹资。

FundedHere, an equity-based and lending crowdfunding platform targeting startups in Southeast Asia and Greater China, has launched operations in Singapore.

FundedHere had received its Capital Markets Services (CMS) Licence from Singapore's Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) on 18 March 2016. The licence permits FundedHere to deal in securities under the Securities and Futures Act.

Startups can raise angel or seed funding - through equity issue and/or debt - by registering their business ideas through the FundedHere platform. As the startups mature, they can seek more traditional venture capital or private equity.

The platform will facilitate investments or venture debt from as low as S$5,000 (US$3,700) each.

FundedHere said in a statement that it has reviewed more than 100 startups, mostly from Singapore, and has short-listed approximately 10 which have potential to be crowdfunded.

"Our strategy is to leverage on Singapore's well-regarded regulatory framework and stature as an international financial centre to help startups in the region raise funding," said FundedHere CEO Michael Tee. "We will work closely with startups, incubators and VCs as well as local universities and technology research agencies in Singapore. We will also reach out to startups in Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines and China."

Only Accredited Investors (AI) are allowed to invest from as low as S$5,000 (US$3,675) each in startups registered on the platform. Under Singapore law, individual AIs are required to have at least S$2 million in net personal assets, excluding the primary residence, or earn an annual income of at least S$300,000 (US$200,000). Corporate AIs are required to have at least S$10 million (US$7.4 million) in net assets.

FundedHere targets to register at least 1,000 AIs by the end of this year. Over the longer term, it hopes to register up top 10 per cent of AIs in Singapore.

While crowdfunding and crowdsourcing have emerged in recent years as a multi-billion dollar fund-raising phenomenon in the US and Europe, many such platforms in the Asia are either reward or donation-based, whereby a business or a not-for-profit organisation gives some type of incentive to an investor or donor.
