Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a venture capital fund?
Yup! Well, sort of…Similar to a VC firm, Sweater pools investor money to invest into high-growth startups. Our SEC designation allows us to accept investment contributions from non-accredited investors (regular folks). Other than that, we invest into the same high-growth companies as our more exclusive contemporaries. We’re the VC fund for everyday investors.
How is this different from equity crowdfunding?
We’re in a completely different league. Equity crowdfunding platforms raise money for individual startup ventures, and we are forming a registered investment fund that invests in many startups. Equity crowdfunding operates under RegCF and RegA+ exemptions, which don’t allow you to pool money into a fund. Sweater doesn’t have that restriction. Sweater’s professionally-managed fund pools investor money to invest into private, venture-backed companies on your behalf.With Sweater, you can invest into the highest potential companies in the world at the click of a button.
Can I invest if I'm outside the United States?
At this time, Sweater cannot accept contributions from individuals or entities based outside the United States of America. It is our objective to open this up on a country-by-country basis as soon as possible.
How liquid is my investment?
Traditional venture funds keep you locked into the fund for ten years or longer. We’re not about that, but we do believe in a long-term mindset. Like your IRA or 401(k), you should look at your investment in Sweater’s fund from a long-term perspective.And when you do need to withdraw some or all of your investment, you can redeem a portion or all of your investment during one of our periodic windows. This is subject to a cap as outlined in the fund prospectus, so you may not be able to extract your entire requested amount in any given window—it is based on demand.
