Frequently Asked Questions

If you are an institutional investor, or member of an endowment, family office, foundation, or corporate venture capital firm, active in direct investments or direct lending, or even a fund-of-funds active in Direct Investments, you can register and apply to gain Explorer membership access to our exclusive investor network for free (in perpetuity).

Investors can search and find other verified alternative investors (that have agreed to be visible) once they have completed their registration and are approved. Investor Networkers can chat, and schedule meetings with their peers using the platform. Opportunity Seekers can also access curated direct investment opportunities and co-investments as part of our family of alternative investors.

Registered Investor Networker members who have applied to and invested in our monthly or annual subscription options to become an Opportunity Seeker member, and have adjusted their profiles to specify their preferences, can access curated investment opportunities that are specifically matched to their investment profile.

Investors working for institutions, family offices, funds of funds, or endowments and foundations with assets under management $100m+ can join as individual members. HOWEVER, this is NOT an angel network, and while smaller investors will not be considered, we are open to verified professional investors of sufficient standing that can pass our strict background checks.

Square Buzz does not disclose any individual investor contact information. Members can choose to display their profiles publicly, or withdraw from visibility. It’s your choice. Investor Networker members can approach other Investor Networker members  within our system to connect, contact, schedule meetings, and chat… to discuss collaboration in opportunities within similar business stages, or that operates within their chosen sub-industries, areas of focus, and regions, etc.

Explorer level:

Investors can join for free to gain access to individual profiles, and can complete their profiles to disclose their (and their firm’s) sectoral, regional, and other interests to other investor members. They can elect to be searchable in their private capacity, or remain anonymous and benefit from private conversations with peers with which they contact directly.

Investor Networker:
The private search, chat and meeting scheduling options will only be available to investors that have subscribed (once-off subscription, valid for a lifetime, is required) and completed their profile.

Opportunity Seeker:

The ability to access curated investment opportunities are only available to members who have invested in a monthly or annual subscription.

Corporate Capitaliser:

Senior Company representatives, CEOs, CFOs, can join our network to consider capital raising for growth, disposals, or diversification opportunities, or other services, like international payments (offered by our partners).

Initially, we will provide access to opportunities that are sourced from our own network and meet specific screening criteria. Apart from this initial criteria-driven screening, and KYC on the people involved, Square Buzz, and Little Square Capital, our UK-based FCA-regulated parent, will not do additional due diligence on any company, or asset introduced to us via the Square Buzz platform to our members. 

We plan in future to open the platform to introduction of investment ideas by other financial institutions, and from within our network.

At any stage, the onus and responsibility is on investors to do their own due diligence.

This capability is only available to Investor Connector (and Opportunity Seeker) members. The Square Buzz investor network encourages confidential interaction between investors from different firms. We do not track your conversations.

In the Beta phase (until end Dec 2023), our events schedule will show a selection of possible historical events. We anticipate this alternative investor platform will grow its events profile eclectically (both internally hosted and those introduced to us by our members) and offer investors valuable content. We welcome advice and encourage relationship facilitation with key partners and experts across your portfolio companies.

On initiation, our membership network will constitute 23,814 professional investors, from 5,493 investment firms, that are current and future investment leaders from endowments, foundations, single family offices, hedge funds, venture capital firms, corporate venture capital, private equity firms, private credit firms, investment companies, sovereign wealth funds, and other entities believed to actively allocate money to direct investments and direct lending in private markets.
