Evenfi, a lending crowdfunding platform for SMEs, has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on WeAreStarting that, in less than 24 hours, has surpassed the minimum target of $315,000 (€300,000), thanks to more than 100 investors.

The raising is for the investment vehicle EvenFi Ventures S.r.l., created specifically to inject capital into Cryptalia S.r.l., the platform operator. In the pitch, it is stated that the entry into EvenFi Ventures will be at par value, i.e., on terms equal to those of the founding partners, where the entire amount invested will represent the company’s ownership stake in the newly formed company. The investment deal is based on an investment agreement founded on a capital increase of Criptalia at a company valuation of $10.5 billion (€10 billion).

In addition, loans are differentiated into a bullet or amortizing, the former with repayment of principal and interest at the predetermined time frame, the latter with repayment in installments of the loan.

Alongside this are dynamic loans (dynamic loans), which work not according to the time variable but according to the achievement of predetermined economic results of the borrowing company. The term of the loans requested by the company is usually between 4 and 60 months, and companies can request funds from $36,800 (€35,000). Annual gross rates related to the loans are between 7 percent and 11 percent.

To each project, EvenFi assigns a rating – from A to D – based on the score that the company and the project have obtained with the proprietary risk analysis model, an algorithm that analyzes the company’s data and information.
