      Small Business / Investing in Business
      Jul 03, 2015 09:34:39 am
      People,

      I know some of you on here run your own companies or have had experience in doing so.

      Are there any websites that offer minority stakes in things for a monthly return that potential investors could consider. I see lots of property investment schemes popping up on facebook but I never know if they are legit or not.


      Any ideas?

      Usually to do that you invest in public listed company, so you own shares and you get return on those shares (Dividends depending on the company's P/L account).

      Are you willing to own a 10% or 20% stake in a small business?

      I'm aware of investing on the stock market as I invest into a pension at the moment but I wanted to look at other things away from the norm.

      Hmm...

      Not interested in investing in risk free securities?

      I'm not so sure about property investment schemes if they are risky or not (I've never dealt with them).
