All funds that you have on your bank account are affected by inflation. It’s an obvious fact, which means that the real value of your money is constantly decreasing. People, who are not investing their money are actually losing it year by year.
You don’t want your savings to lose any value, that’s another obvious fact. In order to avoid it you need to find a way of investing your money and yield a return, which is higher than the inflation rate. Traditional bank deposits don’t seem to serve this purpose anymore, as in many countries those are yielding yearly interest from 0% to 0,5%.
The only solution to protect your savings from being devalued by the inflation is investing part of it in assets that yield significantly higher return. Experts recommend that people invest at least 10% of their capital in such type of assets. Envestio is offering a selection of high rentable premium opportunities that can protect your savings from inflation and earn some additional income.
Investments done through crowdfunding platforms can be very rewarding. Initially, such investments were possible only for professional investment companies and individuals called business angels, who could invest significant amounts in start-ups or other ventures with high potential, which brought them great returns. Indeed, it required big capital under control and high level of business networking and financial proficiency.
With start of crowdfunding platforms such as Envestio, investments in such rewarding projects became available to wide public, as investing through Envestio is eliminating need for both big capital and exclusive access to high-yielding investment projects.
No. Investments through crowdfunding platforms remain risky ones, so you should not invest your entire savings in high-earning projects. Nonetheless, experts recommend that in order to protect your savings from inflation, some portion of them, e.g. 10% should be invested in projects with high return, while remaining 90% could be invested in conservative investment instruments, which bring low, but guaranteed returns, such as AAA level bonds.
You do not need much capital to invest successfully, you can also create your own diversified investment portfolio at Envestio step by step.

Started as a private investment fund, now Envestio is a modern crowdinvesting platform, which offers new ways of making investments in traditional and innovative investment projects. Envestio offers investors premium level investment opportunities, which were carefully chosen from many applications and thoroughly studied by Envestio analytical team. Entrepreneurs from different industries can apply for structured financing at Envestio platform and quickly receive it from the pool of registered private investors. Envestio takes care of the transparent full-cycled fundraising process, and ensures honest and unbiased information exchange between all participants of every investment project.
In the Age of Internet crowdfunding concept swiftly became popular as an alternative way of finding necessary financing for different projects. Unlike the traditional bank financing, crowdfunding is highly decentralized concept, where many investors are participating in each project with investments of small or moderate size. Crowdfunding is being used to finance project of different size and nature, such as commercial ventures, cultural and charity events, scientific research, development of new products, etc. In many cases, people, contributing to a crowdfunding project are not expecting a monetary return, especially in case of funding cultural or charity project, or the return is clearly symbolic, like “thank you” booklet or CD.
Crowdinvesting is somewhat more specific than ordinary crowdfunding as it is related to funding business ventures, newly established or already existing companies with a straightforward purpose of earning interest on invested funds. Certain number of investors join a pool to complete the announced need of a project or company for specific type of funding. Profits or revenues are distributed to them according to previously approved schedule and proportionally to the share invested by each investor. Most crowdinvesting platforms allow their participants to start investing from very fairly small amounts, such as 50 or 100 EUR. Ordinary people received a great alternative to traditional bank deposits, which are noticeably less flexible and profitable than investments made through crowdfunding platforms.
Bridge financing is an interim financing option used by companies and other entities to solidify their short-term position until a long-term financing option can be arranged. Bridge financing normally comes from an investment bank or venture capital firm in the form of a loan or equity investment. This type of financing only occurs when a company's runway is shorter than its future financing options, and it needs to remain solvent in order to obtain such long-term financing.
