When You Should Get a Broker for Your Fundraise


TEN Capital is not a broker/dealer but rather a Funding as a Service program. Here at TEN, we help startups raise their own funding rather than raising funding for them. Other groups such as broker/dealers (which requires a license) raise money for startups.

TEN Capital is a good fit if you want

  • to raise your own funding
  • a lower cost of funds raised
  • to control your raise including the terms
  • to decide who you want as investors

Broker/Dealers are a good fit if you

  • you don’t have time to raise the funds
  • you don’t want to deal with the details of the fundraise such as negotiating the terms
  • want to have someone else raise the funds for you
