The Aventure team is currently working on the alpha of their platform. They are actively working with experienced professionals in the finance and startup industries to build out their initiatives, adding features and service offerings based on the input of these industry experts. They have a rapidly growing waitlist for the product launch.
They have recently gone through both the Shea Accelerator with the Shea Center and Boston College and went through a professional VC accelerator through SSC venture partners where they received some funding and a board of mentors.
The Aventure team is looking to raise $150-200K. This funding will be used to bolster the company’s liquidity, handle the complex legal environment of the financial markets, and build and refine the investment app. Aventure is also looking for accredited investors who are interested in trying out the alpha version of the app! If interested, make sure to sign up on their website or contact directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aventure plans on expanding their team to cover a diverse range of strong skill sets, both in technical programming and business operations. The company aims to be nationally inclusive, and in the longer term, will look to deliver their innovative solution to foreign individual investors.
The biggest hurdle Aventure will aim to overcome in the next year is, primarily, their funding requirements. They are managing this challenge by leveraging every opportunity available from school-based entrepreneurship resources, to conferences in the Boston area, to reaching out to VCs and Angel investors.
