For early-stage companies, any check can help get the company to the next growth moment, yet managing several investors who are contributing small checks can be a hassle.

This is where BoomStartup can be helpful. Our accelerator program offers SPV creation and management services for founders within the BoomStartup community. Either BoomStartup can Administer the SPV (act like an organizer where the startup brings the investors into the deal) or BoomStartup can Syndicate the SPV (this is an exclusive offer to companies who enter the AmplifyUp program).

This educational webinar continues the information shared on the Introduction to SPV OpenUp webinar and goes into how BoomStartup works with founders, how we collect fees, and what to expect if you participate in the AmplifyUp program.

You will learn:

  • How BoomStartup funding works
  • How BoomStartup leverages SPVs to expedite deal closing
  • When does BoomStartup get paid with a carry
  • Explaining the difference between Administration and Syndication
