Based on promising advertisements and reports, I got involved in crowdinvesting a few years ago to diversify my investment portfolio, as is recommended everywhere. At Seedmatch, I have invested in 8 companies so far. The process alone: sign up, register and deposit works great and then that's it though. In the meantime, I have written off almost all of my investments, 3 companies are insolvent and the communication on the part of Seedmatch or OneCrowd, as they now call themselves, is very expandable - little clear and timely information, they often keep a low profile and feel rather left alone as an investor. Also, I strongly doubt the quality check on some projects that are on the platform. For me, unfortunately, this is not an investment alternative that I will continue to pursue in the future.
