WE'LL KEEP YOU IN THE LOOP

Get email updates on your campaign. If the target raise is hit, you are off and running! If it isn't, you get your money back.

POTENTIAL RETURNS

The business makes loan repayments or shares a portion of their revenue with you quarterly. Equity investments may also be available on Vicinity.

Investing in small and mid-sized businesses is risky.

Returns aren't guaranteed, you could lose all of your investment.
