Investor FAQ

What is XCAP?

XCAP starts and accelerates companies that are developing revolutionary IP and technologies both in emerging industries and industries experiencing radical disruption. Statistically few start-ups succeed, most fail. XCAP aims to switch those statistics and to make most XCAP-promoted companies succeed.

What is your methodology?

For selection: one XCAP team assesses the individual(s) running the company. Another team assesses the business proposition. Both teams work totally separately and are not allowed to know the other’s findings and assessments. If both teams approve then XCAP will promote the company.

For acceleration: 1. minimising “FFF” – the forces and factors of failure, and 2. having two engineering teams working on opposite sides of the planet following the sun so that an investor’s money is working 24 hours a day.

I am looking to be more than just a passive shareholder – is that possible?


I like the basis of something I’ve seen on XCAP but I’d like to take it into a different direction.

Companies and ideas here are generally still at the workup phase so new thinking is always welcome.

Can anyone invest in an XCAP company?

No. You need to be an Accredited Investor or a High Net Worth individual or someone who manages portfolio investments as a career.

Next to offer Type it says VCO - what does that mean?

VCO means Venture Capital Offering and means you are trading cash for equity, not coins or tokens

What are the risks of investing in a company promoted on XCAP?

Investing in start-ups and early stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, potential loss of investment and dilution.

What do you base the amounts being targeted on?

The base cost of a team of engineers for at least two years.

Does XCAP offer financial advice to investors?

No. XCAP sources, arranges and promotes investment opportunities in particular business areas. XCAP’s job is to give a given business the best possible chance of success and to find the right investors for it. XCAP does not manage investment portfolios or run collective investment schemes or funds. There is no XCAP master fund.

Can I get tax relief on XCAP investments?

XCAP is unable to offer tax advice. If you are in any doubt about the availability of any tax reliefs, or the tax treatment of your investment, you should obtain independent tax advice before proceeding with your investment.

What stages of development are XCAP companies at?

Seed or early stage.

How can I exit my investment?

Shares in XCAP companies will not trade on a secondary market. XCAP can broker a sale of your investment but cannot guarantee to find a buyer at any given time. Investments arranged by XCAP should be viewed as long term and illiquid investments. An IPO or trade exit can never be guaranteed.

What is an Indication Of Interest?

An indication that you are interested in making an investment in the proposed idea or business outlined.

Can I send in a term sheet?


I am not an accredited investor - how can I get involved?

Apply to become a seedholder with the company.

There are no projects showing on

If thats the case then we’re either too busy working on existing projects or no one has come to us lately with a new project that is going to change the world.
