You will earn a bonus for any shares you purchase in participating campaigns. For example, if you buy 100 shares at $1 per share in a company, you will receive 10 bonus shares, meaning you’ll hold 110 shares for $100. This bonus is valid for one year from the time you invest. If you want to renew your Owner’s Bonus after that year, you can make an additional investment of any amount in StartEngine and renew the bonus for another year.
To earn the Owner’s Bonus, you have to invest in StartEngine the platform (we’re raising capital too!). For first-time investors in StartEngine, you must invest a minimum of $1,000 to earn the Owner’s Bonus. For those who are investing in StartEngine for the second or third time, any investment amount will activate or renew the StartEngine Owner’s Bonus for another year.
