The first Regulated Hungarian Equity Crowd Funding Portal

(The launch of the crowdfunding service is pending NCA approval.)

Tokeportal.hu aims to introduce and establish equity-based crowdfunding in Hungary. The scale of such crowdfunding campaigns are subject to European Union legislation and, as a result, currently is limited to €1,000,000 per year.

Once Tokeportal.hu is authorized, crowdfunding will become accessible to Hungarian and regional enterprises in the local business environment. Through Tokeportal.hu, startups or established companies can raise funds from registered investors through video- and text-based campaigns on the platform. Investors may access all information necessary for their investment decision through our transparent and regulated processes. They can raise further questions and get involved in active communication with the campaign owners during 45-60 day-long campaigns (minimum campaign duration). Campaigns are considered successful in case they reach their target capital at the end of the campaign period. Campaign owners realize their capital through an increase in the subscribed capital of their project company; this process is equivalent to private placement and complies with the Hungarian Securities Markets Legislation in force.

 

This webpage contains general information about crowdfunding but does not facilitate this activity before authorization. Prior to its public launch, Tokeportal.hu engages in business advisory activities.

CROWDFUNDING

Online crowdfunding is an effective and innovative financial technology service, featuring an easy web-shop style process for crowdfunding projects and startups through online campaigns. The crowdfunding portal constitutes a marketplace for investors and project owners in this process. Unlike the traditional forms of financing, which include a higher investment amount from one or several sources, through crowdfunding one can raise small amounts of money from a large number of people, the crowd.

 

Flowchart

The creation of many marketable ideas are often hindered by lack of capital. Such situations frequently occur during a startup’s early financing stages. Friends, family and acquaintances often cannot provide any more funds after a certain point whilst receiving funding from professional financial institutions is also still not yet possible. Equity-based crowdfunding provides a platform for raising capital as well as for marketing, which are inevitable during the development of early-stage enterprises. Although several renowned and successful portals exist in developed capital markets, in Hungary there has not been any fintech solution yet, a gap in the market that Tokeportal.hu intends to fill.

Our vision is for Tokeportál to be the stock market of the domestic start-up community; we aim for it to become the efficient marketplace for start-ups that wish to raise capital.

The problem

The creation of many marketable ideas are often hindered by lack of capital. Such situations frequently occur during a startup’s early financing stages. Friends, family and acquaintances often cannot provide any more funds after a certain point whilst receiving funding from professional financial institutions is also still not yet possible. Although several renowned and successful portals exist in developed capital markets, in Hungary there has not been any fintech solution yet, a gap in the market that Tokeportal.hu intends to fill.

 

Our solution

To reach out to the crowd and to the next level of financing that is required for a business venture, equity-based crowdfunding campaigns prove to be the most effective way for startups and SMEs to reach their growth targets.

Tokeportal.hu does not match investors with project owners, nor does it engage in asset management. Investors shall transfer the amount invested to a deposit account. Campaigns reaching their target capital realize it through an increase in the subscribed capital of their project company. Investment through Tokeportal.hu is equivalent to a private placement.

By becoming a member of the crowdfunding community, prospective investors may gain easy access to startup investments either on an individual or group/company basis. Investing on a group basis means that individual investors join a Lead Investor through the portal (Lead Investors take an excessive role in the investment process) and invest as a syndicate. Such syndicates enable a very effective investment structure.

The most important document in the process of campaign authorization is the Key Investment Information Sheet (KIIS). This document is based on the European Commission’s Proposal for Regulation on European Crowdfunding Service Providers. It consists of a maximum of 6 slides in A4-sized paper format. It includes the specific features and risks of the investment opportunity and provides information on the investors’ rights and fees.
