Why Flippa Invest?

With Flippa Invest, we open up access to a private network of growing businesses. These opportunities are exclusive to Flippa and available to accredited investors.

We’re talking, established, fast growing and revenue generating eCommerce and SaaS businesses. Each of these businesses has a planned exit strategy and the offer is limited to a small number of investors. Investors take an equity position in the online business, facilitated by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).

Who Can Invest?

Flippa Invest opportunities are only available to Accredited investors who are residents of the United States. Prior to investment all investors will be required to complete an accredited investor check on the Assure platform.

How Does it Work?


    1. Flippa qualifies and works with business owners to list investment opportunities on the Flippa platform.
    2. Business owners nominate a minimum investment, target raise amount, equity on offer, pre money valuation and a proposed close date.
    3. Flippa uses a proprietary matching feature to connect relevant business owners with relevant investors.
    4. Interested investors can review opportunities and connect directly with business owners to discuss opportunities.
    5. Investors who make a commitment to invest will then be asked to go through an accredited investor check including completing a profile and accredited investor check – Rule 506(c).
    6. Once the minimum target raise amount is reached, Assure (Manager) in partnership with Flippa, will setup a Special Purpose Vehicle Agreement (SPV), and execute a Security or Unit Purchase Agreement to purchase the agreed units from the target company.
    7. The raised funds (minus any applicable fees) are then transferred to the target company.
    8. Flippa maintains a connected ‘page’ showcasing insights and updates providing near real-time updates back to investor.
    9. Assure completes the required annual K-1 tax forms for the relevant businesses.
    10. You own a piece of a online business!

    What is an SPV?

    “A Special Purpose Vehicle/Entity (“SPV”) is a business entity that has a special limited purpose. SPVs are often created to protect assets and separate liabilities of a parent or subsidiary company. Each SPV, which may share the same managing and sponsoring entity (an “SPV Organizer”), has its own operating structure, ownership structure, balance sheet, and is financially independent of any other SPV with the same SPV Organizer. While an SPV can be any entity type, they are usually either a limited liability company (LLC) or a limited partnership (LP).

    An Assure SPV allows investors to pool funds into an SPV, allowing this investment vehicle to acquire and manage a specific asset (or multiple assets). Assure’s SPV product is a simple and flexible way to structure an investment fund.”

    What are the fees?

    Admin Fee

    The escrowed admin fee is 1% per annum payable upfront for seven years. If the SPV lifetime is shorter than seven years, then the difference is refunded to investors. This equates to a 7% fee on top of the subscription amount.

    Example: The minimum investment of $25,000 would require a total subscription amount of $26,750 + (any applicable blue sky fees).


    SPV Setup fee

    $10,500 SPV set up fee. Once all closings are complete, the Capital Account Statements will take into account SPV set up expenses that investors occur pro rata based on their commitment in the SPV.

    The SPV has a maximum lifetime of 7 years and will need to be renewed after this period.



    10% payable on the net capital gain of the SPV upon liquidation or an exit event.

    How do returns on investment work?

    Returns to investors are comprised of two components

    • A capital gain on the exit of the company in a liquidity event such as a sale or buyout.
    • Distributions or dividends from the company.

    If a target company is opting to pay dividends this will be outlined in the investment memorandum pitch slides. Most investment opportunities on Flippa have an exit strategy in place and this is the most common method of return for investors. Typical exits are sale of a company on a platform like Flippa, buyout of a particular shareholding or initial public offering (IPO) or a management buyout of the SPV. 

    What documents do I need to sign to invest?

    Private Placement Memorandum is a disclosure document given to investors for their investment consideration. 

    A PPM will highlight terms such as the offering itself, the price of the securities, management team, tax implications and other regulatory disclosures. 

    Subscription Agreement is a synopsis of the terms of the entire PPM and outlines the contract between the issuing company and the investor. The agreement will outline the terms of the offering and the securities being sold. 

    Sample documents can be downloaded from Invest listing pages.

    What happens after I invest?

    After you invest, Flippa will continue to maintain the listing page active except that it will be hidden from Google Search, Flippa Search and made private. This provides a simple way for Founders / Company representatives and investors to communicate with each other on their investments.
