How you make money
When you invest in a company on Republic you receive an interest in the company, in the form of a security. A security is essentially an agreement with financial terms between you and the company. It represents your financial interest in the company. There are several types of securities sold by companies on Republic. Most startups on Republic elect to use a security called the Crowd SAFE, which entitles you to a return if the startup does well and certain conditions are met. Investors can earn a return, if a trigger event occurs at a certain price threshold. Although trigger events sometimes happen earlier, many don’t occur for 4-6 years after the initial investment, and some take even longer.
Another, slightly safer, way to earn with Republic is through a Crowd Simple Debt Agreement (Crowd SDA). A Crowd SDA is an investment contract between lenders (investors) and companies looking to raise capital. Individuals make investments in exchange for the chance to earn a return in the form of cash interest payments.
How Republic makes money
Companies pay only if they successfully reach their funding goal: 6% of the total funds raised in cash, and 2% as a Crowd Safe(Equity). Republic now offers different types of listings as well and takes the same 6% cash and 2% equity split with other offerings such as real estate and cryptocurrency. There are also other associated fees in which Republic earns money on such as marketing.
Is it Safe?
The Republic site (the "Site") is owned by OpenDeal Inc. and maintained by Republic Core LLC (“Core”), neither of which are registered broker-dealers. Core provides technology and support services to OpenDeal Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, the “Republic Ecosystem”). All funding-portal activities are conducted by OpenDeal Portal LLC doing business as Republic, a funding portal which is registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a funding portal (Portal) and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
Investment opportunities posted on this website are "private placements" of securities that are not publicly traded, are subject to holding period requirements, and are intended for investors who do not need a liquid investment. Investing in private companies may be considered highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk, including the risk of substantial loss of investment. Investors must be able to afford the loss of their entire investment. Every investor should be aware that investing in companies on Republic’s platform involves a high degree of risk, but the platform itself has a strong track record of being certified and safe to invest on.
