About Odin

Odin lets you invest in startups and funds via SPV’s (special purpose vehicles) that are set up specifically to make these kinds of investments. You can invest from as little as $1,000. You can find out more about what an SPV is here.
  • People are able to lead syndicates (groups) of investors and charge carried interest (a success fee in the form of a share of profits) and deal fees to participants.
  • Founders can also use odin structures to set up SPV’s and invite people to contribute smaller cheques to their funding round.
  • You can currently invest in GBP, EUR, USD or almost any other mainstream currency.
We are a UK based, FCA regulated investment platform. All our SPV structures are based in the UK and are fully tax-transparent. You can claim S/EIS tax relief if you're a UK investor, and if you're in the US you will not be subject to any withholding, since we comply with FATCA and PFIC reporting.
We launched in August 2021, and have since helped over 200 companies to raise over $30 million from angel investors, family offices and VC firms globally. We raised a $1m pre-seed funding round ourselves in 2021, and are now profitable and growing quickly (30% monthly).
