Startup investing can be either simple or hard, but it all starts with one basic question: what startup would you like to invest in? StartEngine makes this question a simple one as it offers 162 startups to invest in.

There are many investment criteria to help you choose startups to invest in. One can select from various industries like artificial intelligence, advertising and marketing, art, agriculture, and biotechnology, just to name a few.

Due diligence when picking the best startups to invest in is always suggested. In this article, I present the seven newest startups to invest in. I believe investing early to expect high future returns after having measured the risk is one of the benefits of startup investing.

The firm is redefining the plastic manufacturing market, which is a $579 billion market. This number is higher than the social media and smartphones markets combined.

Timeplast not only mimics plastic, but it can fully dissolve in water in 60 hours. The forms of revenue come from plastic substitution for a plastic-free world and from new applications in markets related to metal, paper and glass.

Plover Animation aims to be a key player in the metaverse, an industry that has a lot of potential, but is still in its infancy. There is a growing need for metaverse animators to generate content. As the metaverse industry grows and evolves, the animation industry has faced another problem: there is a severe lack of diversity and inclusivity in both content and staff.

Plover Animation addresses these problems by offering animation services especially for the metaverse marketplace. The firm not only plans to make digital art for non-fungible tokens (NFT), but also other assets, like characters, environments and animated films.

By targeting the metaverse marketplace that is expected to grow to $828.95 billion in 2028 and the global animation market that is anticipated to reach $587.1 billion by 2030, the potential for revenue generation is huge. The main goal is bold enough: the company wants to be a leader in the NFT animation studio industry, covering the needs of NFT collectors and blockchain companies.

The minimum investment in Plover Animation on StartEngine is $248.64.
