GrowVC – virtual venture capital lending gets the Web 2.0 touch

Growvc

Grow VC aims to be a vibrant crowd-sourced funding engine for startups. The site brings together those who want to offer money and those who need money for their startup. Both sides pay a subscription to the service in order to list their profiles, the fee being based on the amount of money needed or available.

It’s all very seed fund friendly and currently boasts 3000+ members and $12 million of available capital. Definitely an interesting idea and one that deserves to get more attention (although the choice of such remote offshore operations as Hong Kong and the Virgin Islands is a little…um…worrying).

  What is Grow VC? Grow Venture Community – the Virtual Silicon Valley. Bringing the first truly global, transparent, community-based approach to seed-funding. Grow VC can help startups secure initial funding of up to 1M USD for their businesses. Grow VC will not only connect startup entrepreneurs with investors to help them discover common interests, but also provide tools for processes and transparent, new ways of doing things.
