How you make money

Once you have made an investment in a startup, you will hold private equity in that company. The value of your stake in the company may increase or decrease over time depending on how the company performs. You will receive cash or stock return on your investment if and when a positive liquidity event occurs – for example, as a result of the company going public or getting acquired by another company. Please bear in mind that startup investments are long-term investments that may take years to become liquid, if they do at all.

How StartEngine makes money

We charge 7%* of total capital raised for Regulation Crowdfunding offerings, an additional 2% in equity, as well as $10K in deferred revenue that we collect when the offering is complete.

Is it Safe?

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.
