The startup scene is booming all over the world. Never before has the number of foundations of new companies been as high as it is today. Over time, innovative ideas turn into companies that are worth millions. You should become part of this success and invest together with StartMarkt into Germany’s startups!
With the establishment of the first German security token – in principle a digital security – StartMark revolutionizes the investment market. With the approval of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) StartMark creates a fast, easy and innovative access to the asset class of startups. You have got the opportunity to invest in upcoming young companies and become part of their success right from the start via StartMark Tokens. This security token is based on blockchain technology and creates a link between traditional securities and digital token-based bonds. This enables investments that were previously inaccessible due to high ticket prices of €100,000 or more. With this brand new asset class you acquire not only shares but also actual participation in startups. In contrast to Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), the security token thus represents a genuine value - a unique selling proposition of StartMark GmbH in the investment market.
Via a smart contract security tokens are linked to the real participation and grant you digital value or user rights. Unlike other forms of financing such as crowdfunding or private equity, this gives you the opportunity to actually trade the acquired shares on secondary markets. A traditionally illiquid market thus becomes liquid, without costly regulation according to KAGB or asset investment law. The token is a completely transparent and innovative form of corporate financing and reflects a real value of the startups.
The StartMark team consists of experienced managers, business angels and investors from various branches of the finance, IT and marketing business. We analyze startups and add them to our portfolio taking into account the overall economic perspective as well as other relevant economic factors like business modell, scalability or sustainability. Concerning the selection of adequate startups, you can rely on our trustworthy expertise and decades of experience.
Start Mark offers an intelligent investment alternative at times of low interest rates. StartMark permits quick, Internet-based and uncomplicated investment in innovative German startup companies. The minimum amount during our initial 30%-discount phase is 700€ (and later only 100€, without discount).
"The STO of StartMark is solidly designed and offers great opportunities. [...] I plan to include a position of StartMark Tokens into my KRYPTO-X-equal opportunities portfolio, as I judge the solid structure of the company with its clear and promising business model in combination with the BaFin authorisation as very promising." (Markus Miller, KRYPTO-X)
"With its portfolio approach, this Fintech promises a lower investment risk compared to crowdfunding, where investors support individual projects and thus bundle their invested capital more strongly." (Wirtschaftswoche Gründer)
"The crypto industry has lost trust with failed ICOs. Now a startup with a token approved by BaFin wants to do things better." (Der Tagesspiegel)
