Koloni (pronounced colony) is a platform as a service business, enabling our customers to own, operate and manage their own sharing services. Koloni has totaled $371K in ARR, increasing ARR by 10x since January 2019. Koloni has seen this early growth by focusing on mid-markets and reducing operational friction by dispersing operations to the local partner.
Koloni's early growth is attributed to developing a suite of innovative hardware and software products and delivering them through a unique business model. While many of the sharing companies you've seen recently, maintain ownership, operations, and revenue, Koloni's approach enables them to disperse (or share) ownership, operations and revenue with all of their B2B customers (we call them partners).
Koloni's B2B2C business model enables them to maintain lean operations while empowering their business partners to make the tough decisions. Their partners can customize pricing and memberships for the end-user, manage assets, track revenues in real-time. Koloni's vision for the sharing economy is built on the idea of connecting a variety of products under one platform and sharing the ownership, operations, and revenue with many different partners.
Frequently Asked Questions
When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Koloni. Once Koloni accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Koloni in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Koloni.
Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.
A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.
To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.
To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:
- Personal information such as your current address and phone number
- Employment and employer information
- Net worth and income information
- Social Security Number or passport
- ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement)
Because Koloni is offering its securities under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, your status as an Accredited Investor will also need to be verified and you will be asked to provide documentation supporting your income, net worth, revenue, or net assets or a letter from a qualified advisor such as a Registered Investment Advisor, Registered Broker Dealer, Lawyer, or CPA.
Until a closing occurs, you may cancel your investment at any time, for any reason. You will receive an email when the closing occurs and your securities have been issued. If you have already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To cancel your investment, please go to your portfolio page by clicking your profile icon in the top right corner.
Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Koloni does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Koloni may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Koloni either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement.
