QUESTIONS STILL? We’ve got answers
  • What is the StartEngine Owner's Bonus?
    The StartEngine Owner’s Bonus allows investors to:

    1. Earn a 10% bonus in shares on their investment when investing in participating companies on StartEngine.
    2. Be the first to hear about new bonus-eligible launches via email notifications.
    3. Get a 20% discount on the seller’s fee when trading with other investors on StartEngine Secondary.
    4. Unlock exclusive access for the first seven days of new launches from StartEngine Collectibles, including wine, memorabilia and more.
    5. Receive priority on the waitlist when investing in oversubscribed companies.
  • How does the bonus work?
    For a membership cost of $275/year, you will earn a 10% bonus in shares 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 with the Owner’s Bonus membership, meaning you’ll hold 110 shares for $100.

    Your Owner’s Bonus membership ensures you will be the first to be notified about newly launched companies. You will receive an email when a company launches that is eligible for bonus shares with your membership.

    Investors with the Owner’s Bonus are also notified by a daily email that features any bonus-eligible company that launched in the previous 24 hours.

    As an Owner’s Bonus member, when selling shares on our trading platform, StartEngine Secondary, you will receive a 20% discount on commission.

    Investors with the Owner’s Bonus membership will have priority access to invest in new launches from StartEngine Collectibles for the first 7 days of launch. StartEngine Collectibles is a Regulation A offering that brings alternative investments to our community, including wine, memorabilia, and more. In addition, investors with the Bonus also have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest in a company that has surpassed its maximum funding goal. Owner’s Bonus members will have first priority to invest if prior investments are canceled or fail, freeing up room to invest in the offering.
  • Who participates in the bonus?
    Companies have the option to opt in and participate in the Bonus program. Please note that not every offering will be eligible for the Owner’s Bonus.

    To identify whether a specific company is participating in the Owner’s Bonus, look for the Owner’s Bonus listed in the rewards perks section of the campaign as well.
  • How long does the bonus last?
    The Owner’s Bonus is active for one year from the point of purchase. The Owner’s Bonus will auto-renew every year. If you choose to cancel the auto-renewal of your Owner’s Bonus, it will expire at the end of that year’s eligibility period.

    To cancel your Owner’s Bonus, please email contact@startengine.com
  • How do I get the bonus?
    If you don’t already have it, you can buy the Owner’s Bonus during checkout when making an investment. You can also purchase it as a standalone product from this page. The Owner’s Bonus costs $275, billed annually, and is set to automatically renew at the end of your membership term.
  • How do I renew the bonus?
    The Owner’s Bonus has an annual $275 payment charged at the beginning of your year’s eligibility period. Your Bonus will auto-renew the following year. We will send you an email notification in advance of that upcoming renewal. You may cancel your membership at any time prior to your auto-renewal if you no longer wish to renew.

    If you choose to cancel at any point, your current Bonus will expire at the end of that year’s eligibility period.

    Note: if you earned your Owner’s Bonus through one of StartEngine’s Regulation A+ offerings, then at the end of your eligibility period, you can renew your bonus by purchasing the bonus through this updated system.
  • Does the bonus come with StartEngine shares?
    The Owner’s Bonus previously was a perk associated with StartEngine’s equity crowdfunding offerings. Now that you can purchase the Owner’s Bonus as a standalone product, the Bonus is not associated with StartEngine shares and does not come with any shares in StartEngine.
  • How do I cancel the bonus?
    You can request a cancelation at any time by reaching out to contact@startengine.com.

    Cancelation requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Not all cancelations are entitled to a refund. Cancelation requests will be assessed based on the investor’s Bonus shares accumulated, and active membership duration up to the point of cancelation.

    Any refunds for the Owner’s Bonus membership will be made to your original form of payment during purchase.

    The Owner’s Bonus is set to auto-renew every year and will charge the payment method on file. If you would like to opt-out of that auto-renewal, you can do so here. Please note that by opting out, your Owner’s Bonus membership will remain active and expire at the end of your year’s eligibility period. If you have any questions or problems canceling your auto-renewal, you can email contact@startengine.com.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.

StartEngine Marketplace

StartEngine Marketplace (“SE Marketplace”) is a website operated by StartEngine Primary, LLC (“SE Primary”), a broker-dealer that is registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA and the SIPC.

StartEngine Secondary (“SE Secondary”) is our investor trading platform. SE Secondary is an SEC-registered Alternative Trading System ("ATS") operated by SE Primary that matches orders for buyers and sellers of securities. It allows investors to trade shares purchased through Regulation A+, Regulation Crowdfunding, or Regulation D for companies who have engaged StartEngine Secure LLC as their transfer agent. The term “Rapid,” when used in relation to transactions on SE Marketplace, specifically refers to transactions that are facilitated on SE Secondary, This is because, unlike with trades on the StartEngine Bulletin Board (“SE BB”), trades on SE Secondary are executed the moment that they are matched.

StartEngine Bulletin Board ("SE BB") is a bulletin board platform on which users can indicate to each other their interest to buy or sell shares of private companies that previously executed Reg CF or Reg A offerings not necessarily through SE Primary. As a bulletin board platform, SE BB provides a venue for investors to access information about such private company offerings and connect with potential sellers. All investment opportunities on SE BB are based on indicated interest from sellers and will need to be confirmed. Even if parties express mutual interest to enter into a trade on SE BB, a trade will not immediately result because execution is subject to additional contingencies, including among others, effecting of the transfer of the shares from the potential seller to the potential buyer by the issuer and/or transfer agent. SE BB is distinct and separate from SE Secondary. SE Secondary facilitates the trading of securities by matching orders between buyers and sellers and facilitating executions of trades on the platform. By contrast, under SE BB, SE Primary assists with the facilitation of a potential resulting trade off platform including, by among other things, approaching the issuer and other necessary parties in relation to the potential transaction. The term “Extended”, when used in relation to transactions on SE Marketplace denotes that these transactions are conducted via SE BB, and that these transactions may involve longer processing times compared to SE Secondary for the above-stated reasons.

Even if a security is qualified to be displayed on SE Marketplace, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.

The availability of company information does not indicate that the company has endorsed, supports, or otherwise participates with StartEngine. It also does not constitute an endorsement, solicitation or recommendation by StartEngine. StartEngine does not (1) make any recommendations or otherwise advise on the merits or advisability of a particular investment or transaction, (2) assist in the determination of the fair value of any security or investment, or (3) provide legal, tax, or transactional advisory services.
