What is a debt investment?
In general, debt investments on NextSeed means businesses are offering monthly payments to investors and to make payments in full by a certain maturity date. Usually, these are short/middle-term investments of up to 6 years. Investors have no ownership in the business and the investment ends when payments end. If a business liquidates its assets, debt holders are first in line and have a claim to those assets before equity stakeholders. This means debt holders will be paid first before equity holders get anything.
Who can make a debt investment?
Anyone can invest in a debt investment in a Regulation Crowdfunding offering. Anyone can invest at least $2,200 every 12 months, and investments limits apply to those making larger investments.
Only accredited investors can make an investment under Regulation D offerings.
