Bigcolors is a startup stock exchange which combines equity crowd-funding by a pool of investors with a trading exchange.  Bigcolors will help raise a maximum of US$100,000 for a startup idea, and for that, entrepreneurs will give up 20 percent of the company. But they can alternatively just raise US$25,000 or US$50,000 and part with 5 per cent and 10 per cent respectively. When the idea is posted on the platform, it then undergoes a two-week due diligence process by the Bigcolors team. Once approved, the idea is open to funding for eight weeks.

Should the funding be completed ahead of this period, investors can trade options, that is, trade the rights to own shares in the future company. Bigcolors says they have grown 80% in signups week on week since launching 3 weeks ago and they have over 900 investors on the platform as well as 79 startups who have signed up for funding. They have had funding for the startups of almost $25k USD since launching. They also have funding commitments from investors of over $500,000 ready to invest in early stage startups, shared the team.
