A: Little George P2Phas hundreds of self accredited high net worth individuals, individual Venture Capitalists, and Venture Capital firms registered to us right now, actively seeking to invest into seed capital for leading edge start-ups to growth capital for profitable established mature businesses. Further, we have a range of intelligent investors, Intelligent investment groups, and intelligent syndicates all subscribing to investment deal flow from GEL.
We have gone through great lengths to build our investor database and advertised with and spent Millions on Naira on sites targeting shareholders who have an average share portfolio of N100M. It has taken a while to build up our database and it is being expanded still.
Investors that we have approved to use Little George P2P can be seen on: Intelligent investors and these are the profiles of investors that we have gathered during our investor certification process. We strictly do not operate an online community (like a social network) nor do we operate an un-moderated forum.
Only 40 – 50% of investment proposals that we approve on Little George P2P will actually receive one or more investor contacts, so even though other networks may boast about being able to get you 15 random leads, we concentrate on getting you the one or two genuine investors that have read your investment proposition and are genuinely interested in investing in you.
Further, it is not uncommon for some approved investors to only make contact with one or two entrepreneurs per year through Little George P2P and this is another testament that our screening process does work and how valuable receiving an investor contact on Little George P2P can be.
To be approved on Little George P2P as an investor, all investors must first agree and attest to satisfying at least one of the following two statements in order to use our service: a statement for Self-Certified Sophisticated Investor or a statement for Certified High Net Worth Individual and they must satisfy the criteria set forth.
We review their request for self-certification and look at a variety of factors, which can include actually calling, and talking to the investor and discussing what types of investments he/she is seeking. If we are unsatisfied we request Proof of ID, Proof of address, and even proof of funds depending on how satisfied we are with the information the investor has provided. Other networks may boast of thousands of investors but the bottom line is that Little George P2P has one of the highest investor decline rates in the industry of over 50%. This is how confident we are and the main reason on why we can operate a ‘no-contact, no-payment‘ pricing structure.
