Interested in investing in Motif IPOs? You’ve come to the right place.
Update 01/23/2017: ENDRA Life Sciences (NDRA) IPO now available for participation on Motif Investing. Bookmark here for the latest. As of 8:30 pm EST, shares still available.
This is a very small ultrasound technology company. The IPO is slated to raise just $11 million or so. Small float. High risk/reward profile. Be sure to read the prospectus carefully. Once you reserve, you may back out if you don’t like the proposition as you learn more.
There’s also some warrants involved. Lots to read for potential investors. Click the button below to read the ENDRA Life Sciences prospectus.
Update 01/19/2017 9:15 am: Click here to read an update on the ShiftPixy IPO.
Update 12/20/2016 2:50 pm: Double bummer. HomeUnion IPO and ShiftPixy IPO postponed. The future of the HomeUnion IPO seems uncertain. ShiftPixy, on the other hand, has a new estimated date of 01/31/2017.
The email from Motif regarding HomeUnion:
Thank you for placing your conditional order for the HomeUnion IPO. Due to the slower activity in the IPO market during the Holiday season, the Company has decided to postpone the IPO at this stage. As a result, your conditional order has been cancelled and any reserved funds are available in your Motif brokerage account.
We will continue to stay in close communication with HomeUnion and B. Riley & Co. regarding their plans.
The email from Motif regarding ShiftPixy:
Thank you for placing your conditional order for the ShiftPixy IPO. Due to the slower activity in the IPO market during the Holiday season, the Company has decided to postpone the IPO at this time. As a result, your conditional order has been cancelled and any reserved funds are available in your Motif brokerage account.
ShiftPixy expects to file financial statements for fiscal 2016 as well as fiscal 2017 Q1 in the coming weeks, and now anticipates launching their IPO by the end of January 2017. We will continue to stay in close communication with ShiftPixy and WR Hambrecht + Co regarding their plans.
Update 12/16/2016 4:00 pm: Trivago posts a 7% one-day-pop on its first day of trading. Bookmark here to keep track of the performance of this stock and all other Motif IPOs.
Update 12/16/2016 11:00 am: Trivago opens trading at $11.20. Trades into the $12’s early in the day. Congrats to all parties involved, including Trivago, J.P. Morgan, and to Motif Investing for completing their first IPO on the new platform.
- Requested – $500
- Received – 12.47 shares @ $11/share
- Amount Received – $137.17
- Allocation percentage – 27.4%
Update 12/15/2016 10:20 pm: HomeUnion IPO delayed until 12/21. ShiftPixy IPO pricing won’t be finalized until 12/22, after finalizing pricing earlier today (still a little confused why pricing isn’t final yet).
Update 12/13/2016 4:20pm: Trivago IPO was available on the Motif Investing platform for less than 30 minutes after an email to current customers (who expressed interest in IPOs by joining the Motif IPO email news list). The opportunity never made it to the Motif IPOs page. The email arrived around 2:35pm-2:40pm EST. Obviously, Motif had a severely limited number of shares to allocate.
As explained in my Free eBook, you always need to reserve first and read the prospectus later. You can always back out. I was able to reserve and fund $500. Now time for due diligence!
On October 21 of 2015, Motif Investing announced that the company is entering the expanding IPO access marketplace, alongside its exclusive partner, J.P. Morgan. Soon, ordinary individual investors will be able to invest in Motif IPOs before the newly issued stocks begin trading on the public exchanges.
Motif is joining Loyal3 in this space, a company that has been providing IPO access to individual investors since 2013. I’ve been following Loyal3 IPOs since the beginning. Check out a history of Loyal3 IPOs here, showing each company that has offered shares on the platform and the stock performance since the IPO.
Time will tell when we’ll see the first Motif IPO. If you have any additional insight, please feel free to leave comments below or contact me.
There’s still hope for the first Motif Investing IPO – be prepared…

List Of Upcoming Motif Investing IPOs

Motif Investing Founder and CEO Hardeep Walia had this to say in a press release:
Any individual investor, regardless of account size or length of relationship, now has the opportunity to participate in big-name IPO transactions.
According to the press release, Motif IPOs will be “beginning soon”. I translate that to mean there’s at least one in the pipeline. Investors can invest with a minimum of $250. The cost to buy into IPOs is zero. No word in the press release on maximum investment amounts.
None of this is new as we know Loyal3 blazed this trail. But that doesn’t make me any less excited.
According to Seeking Alpha, J.P. Morgan “owns a piece” of Motif Investing. It continues to say that “Likely upcoming offerings … include Uber, Airbnb, Dropbox, and Pinterest.”
How to Invest in Motif IPOs
Here at Access IPOs, I’m extremely excited by this news. Access to IPOs for small-time investors (like you and me) is a beautiful development in the markets. We can now participate in the type of investing once reserved for Wall Street’s most exclusive customers.
Our readers have had lots of success investing in IPOs already at Loyal3 and look forward to more at Motif Investing. If you’re interested in the IPO process, you can read two reviews I’ve written on the subject. First is the Dave & Buster’s IPO which took place on Loyal3. Second is the Lending Club IPO which occurred at Fidelity. Both articles go through the IPO process and will help you prepare for upcoming events.
If you’re interested in investing in Motif IPOs, the most important step is to open a Motif Investing account today. I just opened mine! Best of all, it’s free to open an account:
What’s also cool about Motif Investing is you can essentially create your own mutual fund and invest in 30 stocks for one small fee. Or invest in “motifs” that other members have created. You can also invest in individual stocks for just $4.95. Motifs of up to 30 stocks cost just $9.95 to trade. Click the banner below to learn more.
