With an SPV, all of the participating investors will show up as one line item on your cap table. On the other hand, our product automates direct-to-cap-table fundraising, so each investor that invests via Party Round will show up as an individual line item on your cap table.
Party Round is best equipped to support important investments from individuals, whereas SPVs will combine big checks in one entity on your cap table.
Although we’ve had funds come through Party Round, the current platform isn’t fully equipped to support large funds or institutions.
Can I use both at the same time?
Founders can certainly use both Party Round and an SPV at the same time, however, Party Round has been helpful for both large checks and smaller friend & family checks too, especially for earlier stage startups.
