  • Invest in franchises — with ApplePie Capital’s Denise Thomas

    Posted on April 9, 2015 at 6:42 pm UTC

    Don’t know about you, but owning or investing in a franchise business has always captivated me. Something about local ownership, the brand, a business in a box. But minimum investments were typically too high and who really wants to run a small restaurant or bagel place?

Co-founder and CEO, Denise Thomas joins me, your Tradestreaming Podcast host, Zack Miller, to talk about this interesting “asset class” and how to invest in a portfolio of top franchises using ApplePie Capital’s crowdfunding platform.

  • Invest In Small Businesses With An Ecommerce Twist — Kickfurther’s Sean De Clercq

    Posted on March 8, 2015 at 2:48 pm UTC

    Many people have grown tired of passive investing. Sure, the data show that the more remove the human elements — our evolutionary biases — the better we perform in the stock market.

    But many investors are getting more and more excited about participating more with their investments (I believe that’s what’s behind much of the excitement behind angel investing).

    Enter Kickfurther. Part investment platform, part crowdfunding platform, and part ecommerce site, this new company enables people to finance small businesses and earn an equity-like return. I’m Zack Miller, your host on Tradestreaming Radio, and I’m joined by Sean De Clercq, Kickfurther’s founder and CEO to discuss how investors are rolling-up their sleeves and helping the next generation of small businesses grow.
