How It Works

Risk Warning

Investing in start-ups and early stage businesses involves HIGH risks. These risks include possible loss of all capital invested, the inability to sell the shares, lack of dividends and potential dilution. Investments should only be made as part of a diversified portfolio. Fireflock is targeted at qualified investors who accept and understand these risks and are able to make their own investment decisions. Tax benefits depend on personal circumstances and are subject to change in the future. Please read our full Risk Warning here.

Reasons to invest via the Fireflock Platform

Choice of investments

Fireflock offers investors a wide choice of investment opportunities across a range of sectors. We also offer investments in companies at varying stages, from seed, to early stage, to fully established. A wide choice means you can diversify your portfolio and mitigate risk.

Approval

Fireflock undertakes appropriate due diligence into companies looking to raise funds on the website in order that the company's pitch can be considered eligible for approval as a financial promotion and to ascertain that the pitch is fair, clear and not misleading.

Easy Payment

When you pledge your investment, you have three payment options. Funds can debited directly from your account through your GoCardless account or you can pay using your debit card. If you pledge more than £5,000 you can opt to settle off-line. No hassle. No fuss. Simple.

No Fees To Pay

When you invest in a company via the Fireflock platform, there are no extra fees to pay. The amount you chose to invest is the amount you pay. There are no other hidden costs or charges. We like to keep things fair and transparent for our investors.
