    This field of investing seems all over the map, maybe because of it’s relatively short time since the Jobs Act. The confusing this for me is that Microventures internet search brings up three companies associated…DemocracyVC, Indiegogo and Microventures. And it appears that Indiegogo and Microventures have split? Indiegogo was a commission based model, and Microventures is now a no commission model to companies trying to raise capital? And I can’t compare fess on any of these companies even beyond this three associated names. Opaque is an understatement. I don’t know how companies raising capital get to the bottom line, except by being lucky to pick the right platform. And from an investor side, under the heading “there are no free lunches” is this the equivalent of a Las Vegas casino bet? Highly confused.

    I have used microventure to invest. You are right. Its not clear how much share I am getting. Which makes me very scared. Is there any way to know who invested in Facebook using microventure, whether they made any profit or not?

    Hi Samik! While Facebook’s net worth has grown quite a bit since 2011 when Microventures raised $300,000 to buy private pre-IPO shares of Facebook, information pertaining to how specific Microventures investors have done regarding this deal hasn’t been made public.
