Investment Opportunities

What due diligence do you undertake on the deals?

Our team has made over 40 direct early stage investments into companies from around the world.

In doing so, we have developed and refined a data driven, comprehensive standard due diligence process.

Our syndicate leads will also be investing in each deal directly. We come in on deals featured on TEN13 on the same terms as our members, ensuring strong alignment.

How risky are these deals?

The investment opportunities presented by TEN13 are generally early-stage startups. Early-stage investing is, by nature, very risky, and there is a high likelihood that you could lose your investment entirely.

A successful investment, however, can produce large multiples of your initial investment. The possibility of these high outside returns is the main attraction for investors.

We encourage investors to take a portfolio approach when investing in early-stage technology.

If you are new to investing in startups, it’s best to seek professional advice before making any investments.

What are you looking for in startups?

We look for:

  1. Global problems solvers.
  2. A Business that will scale.
  3. An amazing founding team or founder
  4. Early proof of traction.
  5. Technical capability is a must.
  6. Customer centric business

Making an investment

Can I request to change deal terms?

No. Deal terms are negotiated by TEN13 on your behalf. We have done a lot of these and seek to get the best outcome for the collective group.

This usually includes things like preferences shares, pro-rata and information rights.

What is the minimum amount I can invest?

This is determined on a deal-by-deal basis. Generally, the minimum investment is $10,000 in the deal currency.

How do I make an investment?

Once you have been approved to join TEN13, you will receive deal notifications when new opportunities are released via email.

Deal notifications feature everything you need to know about the opportunity including:
company overview, founding team, traction / revenue status, deal terms and any other relevant information.

To request an allocation in the deal, simply follow the steps in the deal notification email.  If your request is successful, you will be notified shortly after allocations are drafted.

If you are successful in investing in a deal through TEN13, you will invest via a nominee arrangement in accordance with our Nominee Agreement. In effect, the assets (shares) will be held via 'bare trust' and you will be the beneficial owner.

  2. Management Agreement: Facilitating the management rights over each investment via the nominee to TEN13 as managers, this is a similar arrangement to a venture capital manager.
  3. Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA): Given the sensitive nature of the information provided for each deal, we have ensured confidentiality is maintained regarding the information that we share with you via TEN13.
