Beginning this month, Motif will offer investors the opportunity to participate in Regulation ‘Reg’ A+ IPOs. These IPOs, commonly referred to as ‘mini IPOs’ have greatly expanded entrepreneur access to capital, allowing companies to tap into enthusiastic investors and potentially secure funding efficiently.
“These mini-IPOs provide early stage growth companies with the opportunity to raise capital by matching them with investors looking to participate in the public offering of companies with high growth potential,” said Paul Schmidt, CFO and SVP of Strategic Partnerships at Motif.
Motif is partnering with WR Hambrecht + Co and other underwriters to bring to market IPOs in the upcoming months.
Retail investors may have the opportunity to access IPOs, indicate interest, and place conditional orders. Customers can participate in the offerings, commission-free, with minimum amounts of $250 up to a maximum of $10,000 per offering.
“We’re excited to continue adding to our offering, providing investors choices and access to sophisticated products,” said Hardeep Walia, Founder & CEO of Motif.

Investing in an IPO is subject to unique risks, tolerance for volatility, and potential loss of principal, that customers should be aware of prior to making an investment decision. Motif cannot guarantee the availability of IPO shares for customers, who submit conditional orders as the number of shares available for distribution may exceed the supply. Investing in securities involves risk, including the possible loss of principal; individual investments or a collection of individual stocks such as motifs which are concentrated in an idea or theme may face increased risk of price fluctuation over more diversified holdings due to adverse developments within a particular industry or sector.
