This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment. StartEngine Collectibles Fund I, LLC is not currently accepting investments from FL and TX.


Reasons to Invest



  • Notoriety: Made in 1965, this artwork is one of Lichtenstein’s first screen prints and considered by many to be the first that features what would later become all his Pop elements in a single composition.
  • Scarcity: There are 150 examples of this work (there were also approximately 5 artist’s proofs), making it extremely hard to find. Many examples sit in the collections of the MoMA, the National Gallery of Art, and the Whitney Museum amongst others.
  • Art Market: Fine art is an asset class that has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 over the last 25 years.
  • Owner's Bonus Exclusive: This offering is reserved for Owner’s Bonus members for the first 7 days. If you would like to invest during this period, and you are not currently an Owner's Bonus member, you can purchase it during the investment process.
     *If you make an investment but you are not an Owner's Bonus member, your investment will be processed after 7 days, unless the offering is oversubscribed, in which event your investment will be cancelled. After the first 7 days, the offering will be available to all investors.






THE ARTIST


Roy Lichtenstein


As a pioneer of the Pop Art movement Roy Lichtenstein popularized his use of Benday dots inspired by comics books in his artworks. Sweet Dreams Baby! is a classic Lichtenstein image featuring his highly contrasted primary color palette, the deafening “POW!”, comic strip violence and the all-important speech balloon, which titles the work.

THE Market


Fine art has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 over the last 25 years.

According to the Citi Global Art Market chart, Contemporary Art showed returns over 14% as of December 2020, versus a 9.5% annual return from the S&P 500. The same article found that over the 25 years, Contemporary Art (defined as works created from 1945 through now) recorded losses in only 4% of cases, over 3-year investment periods.

*Please note that these are historical returns for the art market as a whole, and do not reflect the value of or potential returns on the shares of our company or of any of our Series.


*This graph represents some auction results for comparable works but does not represent all sales for similar objects and does not represent sales of the work currently being offered by StartEngine Collectibles.

WHAT IS SE Collectibles?


StartEngine Collectibles is the future of alternative assets

StartEngine democratizes investment opportunities in assets once reserved for industry professionals and the affluent, by breaking down the barriers to entry such as marketplace access, industry insights, proper procurement, authentication, storage, and insurance for these alternative assets.


Alternative Investments:


The 2018 U.S. Trust Insights on Wealth and Worth survey on wealthy household’s found that while baby boomers and older investors rely primarily on traditional stocks and bonds, younger investors, especially millennials, are more likely to incorporate alternative strategies into their investment portfolios. 


Millennials allocate 17% to alternatives and assets other than stocks, bonds and cash. It also found that 61% of millennial investors think it’s not possible to achieve above-average returns by investing solely in stocks and bonds anymore, and are looking for alternative investments. For example, the report showed that millennials are the fastest growing segment of art collectors, up 8% year-over-year and comprising 36% of total respondents. We believe these shifts in millennial investing tastes suggest there will be more interest in investing in alternative assets.

Updated Fee Structure

7 months ago

 

You spoke and we listened!

StartEngine is venturing out into this exciting new world of collectibles, and is therefore navigating a new field and business model, and doing the right thing for our investors.

We are happy to announce that after receiving your feedback, we have decided to change our fee structure for StartEngine Collectibles. For all collectibles currently open for investment on StartEngine our fee structure is below:

  • 16.7% Sourcing Fee: Our sourcing fee is approximately 16.67% of the total amount we are seeking to raise and is built into the offering. The sourcing fee covers shipping, expertise, appraisal, and sourcing expenses.

  • 0.5% Yearly Management Fee: This fee is retroactively charged when the object is sold and includes the costs for insurance, quarterly inventory assessment, and annual value appraisal, and storage

  • 20% Profit Split: Lower than some of our competitors who charge as much as 50%.

We do not intend to charge you any other fees related to your collectibles investment!

What Has Changed:

  • Expenses and Fees: Previously expenses and fees were deducted from profits or had to be repaid by investors. We have now included those expenses in our fees and will deduct them from there rather than burden our investors. 

  • Profit split: Previously the profit split was 50/50 to match our competitors, it is now 20% making us one of the leaders in the industry. 

We look forward to implementing this new fee structure and more importantly to listen to you, our StartEngine community. If you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to email us at assets@startengine.com. 

FOR ANY SERIES OF STARTENGINE COLLECTIBLES FUND I LLC FOR WHICH THE OFFERING STATEMENT FOR THAT OFFERING HAS NOT YET BEEN QUALIFIED BY THE SEC:
