    Advantages

    Interesting project that built on the blockchain basis with a purpose to change the ways and methods of investing in research and different companies' developments, while getting the right to a part of the intellectual property of the company's product, thanks to their patented intellectual property decision.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The project raises very topical, but very difficult questions at the same time. Investing at the research stage is necessary for many projects, but obtaining the right to a part of the intellectual property of research rather theoretical so far. In addition, it's unclear what are the regulatory rules that permit such kind of operations.

    Comments

    It seems to me that this project is very interesting and promising, but so far all this is only in the theoretical part of the developments. It's very difficult to create rules and get shares from the product that not even created yet; who can determine which developments would bring profits and which ones wouldn't. These moments aren't thought out and worked out not enough and that's why the project is unlikely to develop in the medium term.

    Advantages

    The idea of involving common people in the science and innovation process is very interesting. If it has a proper realization the project will take it`s small niche.

    Risks and disadvantages

    I don`t understand why the team needs a Health Industry Specialist. The project has nothing to do with the health industry.

    Comments

    A unique innovative project which creates a patented product is a rare thing. I don`t expect that there will be a lot of projects funded through LabStart platform. But the platform may become relevant to a certain extent.

    Advantages

    The project can make a significant contribution to the development of innovative technologies.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The road map looks like its creators themselves do not fully understand how their platform should develop.
    The team has not yet succeeded in marketing. Traffic statistics are weak, and there is no interest from the press - neither natural nor paid.

    Comments

    Can not see neither advisers nor the support of serious partners. It is bit presumptuous for such a complex project dealing investments for innovations in such a highly competitive market.

    Advantages

    The opportunity for people to invest in innovation and earn on it.
    Such funds that organize crowdfunding for small private investors – help to dilute the monopolization of the market and develop small innovative projects.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The team does not seem to be very experienced in their field. That’s risky if we talk about such a tough market.

    Comments

    The declared terms and budgets hardly meet the stated goals. The team is either very ambitious or divorced from the real market.
    Marketing is still very poorly developed.

    Advantages

    The number of employees employed by the start up are minimal which will ensure timely payment of wages. The project offers bonuses to the early investors, a factor that will cause many investors to take advantage of this opportunity. The large portion of the budget allocated to project development will keep the project functional and in the long run profitable as well. The project has a well elaborate road plan that illustrates the readiness for timely delivery of results. The project has reserved tokens for future funding this concept minimizes risk of bankruptcy or any unexpected occurring. The token will be traded on the exchange its will enable the investors liquidate at will.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Their is a big time gap in road map implementation which demonstrates the low levels of seriousness displayed by the team.
    The PR team has showcased its weakness from its failure to carry out effective awareness and publicity from the ailing traffic statistics, such a short fall can result into failure to accomplish the hard cap as estimated, investors capable of investing wont know about the project. The luck of a press team will greatly affect the public image of the project. the team does not have advisers with experience in ICO and cryptocurrency, this might result into delays in decision making and a number of other related setbacks. Only one cryptocurency is accepted by the project which weakness the tokens ability to resist devaluation, it also prohibits the potential investors with different cryptocurrencies to invest. Their is a big time gap in road map implementation which demonstrates the low levels of seriousness displayed by the team.

    Comments

    The projects ideology is marketable and unique in fact if handled well at its inception stage of pre-ICO sale it will get many potential investors on board, it should never the less look into having an effective press team and PR team to create awareness about he project.

    Advantages

    The platform may be useful for innovative projects and investors. The platform is already available.

    Risks and disadvantages

    As I can see the platform just provides the standard information about innovation projects (doesn`t provide any kind of analysis). The team doesn`t say much about themselves.

    Comments

    I`m afraid this project may never become popular.

    Advantages

    The project offers a safe and decentralized alternative traditional investment system. The project has a large team, there are blockchain developers, designers, marketers, financiers. The press has a lot of information about the project, which increases its credibility. There is a modern website, whitepaper, as well as a transparent distribution of tokens and budget.

    Risks and disadvantages

    There is no information about the advisers, as well as little information about the experience of the founders of the project, this can reduce the number of potential investors. There is little advertising of the project in the press and social networks. And also there is a high competition.

    Comments

    If the team makes more project benefits, then the business model of the project will be profitable. A platform on which everyone can directly invest in innovative projects and own shares in patents received is a promising solution, as the market for crypto currency is expanding day by day.

    4.3

    Advantages

    Everyone can directly invest in innovation projects and own shares of the resulting patents. Platform works as a dApp and also benefit from blockchain assets. First official version of the platform will be based on an architecture and technologies which guarantee the best ratio between reliability and development time.

    Risks and disadvantages

    33% bonus can be a bit slippery. Low traffic statistics points at the communication problems of the project. No advisers and press reviews also are weighty minuses. Competitive advantages of the project compare to others are not so visible.

    Comments

    Anyone will have possibility of easy supporting of innovative projects and directly benefit from them. Market overview of this field is more than encouraging. With the modern pace of development of the society and technical achievements new innovative projects will be appearing a lot. After some revision project can be not so bad.

    Advantages

    The project has a large portion of the budget assigned to development which will increase the investor retention. The project has manageable number of employees for the start u which will ensure employee remuneration effectively.The project offers bonuses to the early buyers, this will bring many buyers to the pre-sale of the ICO. The project has a well elaborate road plan which shows the investors the level of seriousness o the team founders. The project carry's out token hold function which puts the project a lesser probability of a loss. The token is to be included in the exchange which will trading and also increase on the token value.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The project accepts only one cryptocurency which limits the token value and also increases the risk of loss, more potential investors with alternate cryptocurencies don't get to invest. The PR team is weak evidenced form the poor traffic statistics this will hinder estimated growth more so the hard cap or soft cap might be reached , the potential investors will not know about the existence of this project. The project has no press team this will greatly affect its publicity ad general public image. the team also lucks well experienced advisers in this particular filled this will cause unnecessary mistakes that might cost the business its durability. The project has delayed implementation of some activities in the road ma this makes it unprofitable.

    Comments

    The business module is good , the project will be able to attract more investors than it already has if the founder team lock their tokens for a given period of time this form of commitment will bring them many investors the current digital market of cryptocurrencies is very volatile this makes invest thin twice before investing in projects that accept only one cryptocurrency however the project might consider use of more than one cryptocurrency to distribute token value and make the venture s probability to succeed even greater.
