Membership is BIG!
Does it matter if there are several investors who operate mainly in the same region?
Due to the nature of resulting distribution agreements for non-investing members of a particular brand it is essential that the number of investors per territory is kept to a minimum. This then gives members of BIG who do not hold any shareholder interest in specific brands developed the ability to have priority distribution rights for this brands unless otherwise stipulated by the shareholders themselves. However, all nominations are welcomed for assessment.
Are there any fees associated?
Yes. There is a nominal fee.

Does an investor have to invest in every brand pitched?
No. Investors simply invest in brands that they feel are right for them at whatever level they choose as long as they find another investor (or solely) raise enough finance to move the desired project forwards. Investors should ideally invest in at least one brand per annum.
How are additional members nominated?
As a BIG member we assume that you have an extensive network of industry experts/contacts some of whom may also be interested in forming part of the BIG COLLECTIVE also. Most welcomed nominees are those from territories as yet unallocated across industry. As a result members may nominate other potential investors at any time.
Where will the pitches take place and how often will they be?
Pitches can take place in various investor member locations, you will be notified of the dates/locations of these meetings via the BIG newsletter.
