So how do you get yourself ready to take advantage of investing opportunities? While you can’t predict the path of your direct investment journey, there are certainly ways to set yourself up for success.
When fundraising, several essential decisions can present themselves around how and from whom to raise capital. Those decisions generally fall into two buckets.
Investing in startups and other private companies is certainly not a get-rich-quick scheme, however, with informed decisions, it has the potential to build wealth and even generational wealth.
When people speak of individual or retail investors, they are often referring to non-accredited investors. Non-accredited investors are individuals who earn under $200,000 in one year and have a million or less in assets excluding their primary residence.
As 2023 starts to prove out the equity crowdfunding model at scale, we’ll start to see more later stage companies (e.g. Series B and C) raising from the crowd along side their traditional Reg D rounds. Why?
Pyrium is an inclusive investor community that aims to create a more accessible venture ecosystem by allowing both non-accredited and accredited investors to invest in private companies.

Equity crowdfunding continues to be an exciting and wild space to participate in. No doubt, it will issue in a new dynamic of financing and a new opportunity for communities to support their own entrepreneurs, not to mention the opportunity for more equitable access to capital for many overlooked founders.
Fundraising is a crucial aspect of business operations, involving decisions on what assets to sell (such as equity, debt, or cryptocurrencies) and who to raise capital from. These choices shape the financial strategy of a company and impact its growth and development.
Direct investment has opened up a plethora of opportunities for non-accredited investors and has supported all sides of the community including helping start-ups across the country fund their companies. Getting started with direct investing is a lot easier than you might think.
