Who can raise on Equity Portal?
Core criteria we use to review a company’s application include:
Applications failing to meet all three core criteria above will likely be rejected. We also consider several other non-exclusive factors when reviewing a company’s application, including:
Unlike the three core criteria, Equity Portal will evaluate these soft factors in a holistic manner. One strong element or deficiency will not necessarily make or break an application. However, we generally need to understand what the company does and where it is going, its potential customers, team members and investors, and as its finances.
We also expect Issuers will have a lawyer, accountant, and a transfer agent. We can provide referrals for each. Title III requires an escrow agent and we will facilitate you getting in touch with our preferred provider of these services.
The securities that you acquire on Equity Portal are Federally regulated and subject to certain restrictions. These restrictions may make it difficult for you to transfer or sell your securities for the first 12 months after your acquisition. Additionally, there may also be state and foreign restrictions that further limit your securities’ transferability. Some securities that you acquire may not allow a transfer altogether.
