Business Survival

Many small businesses do not make it.

NextSeed performs the legal, financial and background checks on each business in accordance with the law and NextSeed diligence standards before they are listed on our site.

However, the execution and success of a business depend on the business owners. Entrepreneurship is inherently risky, and there is a chance that the business you invest in will not survive the entire term of your investment to pay you back in full or a chance that it will not open at all. Each venture is unique with its own set of variable factors, and even the most seasoned entrepreneurs may not succeed in their next venture.

Businesses provide investors with information on how they think the business will perform. Investors should bear in mind that past, targeted or projected performance doesn’t necessarily mean that those results will be achieved in the future. There are no assurances that the business will have comparable results.

Many food and beverage businesses do not make it.

While there are contradicting data points on the actual failure rate, small businesses do and may often fail. When evaluating a potential investment, use your judgment and do your own research. NextSeed does not provide investment recommendations, and it’s up to you to decide if a business is right for your investment. Check out the specific risk factors for each offering for more information.

Do not invest in a business if you cannot afford to lose your entire investment.
