INVEST IN THE FUTURE OF FINANCE
Newchip is a new type of financial technology (FinTech) company built from the ground up to be owned by the people it brings the most value to, its own users. You can get in on the ground floor of a pre-IPO FinTech company that is going to revolutionize how people find and make investments online.
In 2016, the JOBS Act made it legal for everyday Americans to invest alongside accredited investors. Two years later, the market is growing rapidly. Close to $100M has been invested through Regulation Crowdfunding and the number of successful offerings increased 202% in 2017.
The problem is that the current market is fragmented across 50+ platforms around the nation.
This fragmentation makes it difficult for investors to find and compare deals. Additionally, customer acquisition cost is a challenge for Regulation Crowdfunding platforms. At Newchip, we shrink that fragmentation one investment at a time to help investors find and invest in companies they believe in, while also helping platforms connect to investors.
Newchip Pulls Together a Fragmented Market
Our vision is to bring together the entire market through data and transparency to build a virtual market hub. We want to help investors make informed and educated decisions with their hard earned money.
As an aggregator marketplace, we make it easy to search, explore and compare investment deals from a wide variety of investment platforms through our simple and easy to use interface.
Our long-term goal is to build an exchange that would become the underlying infrastructure for investors to trade upon between our partner network, much like NASDAQ or NYSE are for the traditional markets.
We truly believe and our vision is to make Main Street the new Wall Street and make venture and startup investing affordable and available to everyone.
Our Revenue Comes From Partnerships
How Does Newchip Make Money?
We generate revenue through partnerships with 20+ partners via monthly listings fees and converted new user registrations. In the future, we expect new revenue streams to come from fees associated with a potential future exchange platform as well as dozens of new partnerships and affiliates. We're covering 15% of our operating cost with revenue and expect to be profitable in 15 months.
What Sort of Return Can I Expect?
As with any investment, it's impossible to say what will happen in the future. But we can tell you what we hope to achieve. Online investing is a massive multi-trillion dollar global industry. We believe Newchip is the sort of idea that can transform it. When you invest in Newchip you are buying future stock in the company (see SAFE notes). It's like investing in Disney back when it was just Walt and Roy. You can use this calculator to get an ROI estimate.
As a pre-IPO startup, an investment in Newchip carries risk, on the other hand startups that succeed can change the world and provide staggering returns for investors. Our current valuation cap (the price you are investing at) is at $15 million. If we're successful, we believe Newchip could someday be a significant player in the finance industry.
We believe in Newchip and so do our investors. All of our investors are in the same boat -- we don't succeed unless you succeed. We're swinging for the fences, and while no one can guarantee success, we're doing everything in our power to make this the best investment you've ever made.
Our Progress & Goals
We've been hard at work on Newchip for nearly 2 years. We've raised significant capital from venture capitalist around the world and now we want to offer an opportunity to our own users to invest in us!
If we raise our fundraising target, we'll use the funds for continued tech development, marketing, advertising, and revenue generating activities to expand Newchip and build out our marketplace.
