Bolstr is a marketplace where emerging consumer, retail and manufacturing businesses can raise funding for expansion from real investors. We use a unique revenue share investment structure, designed to help businesses raise growth funding from investors, while maintaining equity, and making monthly payments that are proportional to gross sales volume. This means that businesses never get squeezed during seasonal sales cycles.

How it Works:

In exchange for funding, investors are entitled to receive a fixed percentage of the business' revenue each month, until the have been paid back a predetermined multiple on their investment.

For example:

Let's say a business raises $100,000 and agrees to share 3% of revenue with investors until they earn 1.2x their investment back. In this scenario, investors would receive 3% of the business' revenue, paid monthly, until they were paid back $120,000 ($100,000 x 1.2x).

I was excited about this platform when I first discovered it, but I have lost confidence in the teams underwriting.  The do not provide enough information on the borrower's balance sheet in my opinion. I have 3 investments that have stopped paying or they are way behind. One even declared bankruptcy.  For now, I would not invest again with Bolstr, but would reconsider if they improved the underwriting and the due diligence that they share with investors.
