Last Day To Invest In BluCollr!

Valued Investors,

As the final leg of our Title III Regulation Crowdfunding campaign closes today, we would like to remind you that we will not be extending our campaign and that this will be your last opportunity to invest in BluCollr at the current terms of $100.00 per Membership Unit. Given our current position, we have concluded that extending the campaign again would not be in the best interests of the company. As of now, we have been able to raise enough capital to build the platform, ensure operation of the platform for at least a year, and grow our user-base over the coming weeks and months through a variety of marketing approaches. While we cannot discuss any future capital raising plans, we can say that we do not anticipate engaging in another crowdfunding round in the immediate future. If you’ve been planning on investing but haven’t yet done so, now is the time!

During the last several weeks we've been previewing the platform for key employers and professional organizations that represent a cross-section of the industries on BluCollr, and their response to the platform has been overwhelmingly positive. As a result of these interactions, the platform will be featured in an upcoming edition of the Facilities Engineering Journal, a trade publication produced by the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) that will reach thousands of businesses in our core demographic. 

Please bear in mind that given the close proximity of our launch date to the closing of our campaign you are not likely to have seen much in the way of user activity on the platform since our launch last week, as we have only begun marketing BluCollr to a select handful of larger employers and professional organizations in our local test market. That said, we are looking forward to introducing BluCollr to the working men and women of America in the coming weeks! 

Thank you once again for your continued support!


Kind regards,

BluCollr Is Live!

Valued Investors, 

 

We are pleased to announce that after over a year and a half of development, and thanks in large part to your backing, the BluCollr web-based platform is now live and taking on a limited number of users in our test market.  

We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your continued support. Your investments have helped us turn BluCollr from a concept into a sleek and user-friendly platform that we believe will revolutionize the way businesses and individuals in manual labor industries communicate, connect, and find work online. Over the past two weeks we have begun meeting with local employers and professional organizations that represent a cross-section of the industries represented on BluCollr, and their response to the platform has been overwhelmingly positive. 

We look forward to jumping into our launch phase with such an eagerly anticipated, well-built platform, and as always we will keep you apprised of any and all progress, success stories, etc. Just as a reminder, with only 10 days remaining in our StartEngine campaign, this may be your last opportunity to invest per the terms of our current offering!

 

Kind regards,

Regarding Our Campaign Extension

Valued Investors,


Earlier today we announced the release of the beta version of the BluCollr web-based platform, which we opted to share with the StartEngine community to allow you, our investors and followers, to gain a clearer understanding of the look and feel of the site. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to explore the site and, if you wish, provide feedback on the platform during this critical stage of the development process. In only a few short weeks, we will be launching BluCollr in our test market, and we can’t thank you enough for making this possible!

 

In light of the holiday next week, we have opted to extend our campaign for 30 days to ensure that you have ample time to explore the BluCollr beta version before our campaign closes. On a related note, if you have been following our campaign on StartEngine but not yet invested in BluCollr, now is the time! With only a few weeks left in our campaign, this may be your last opportunity to take advantage of our current offering.

 

As always, we appreciate your continued support and look forward to sharing additional updates on our progress in due course.

 

Kind regards,

The BluCollr Beta Version Is Up and Running!

Valued Investors, 

 

We recently announced that the development of the BluCollr platform was nearing completion and that we expect to launch the site in the coming weeks. Today, we are pleased to share with you the beta version of the BluCollr web-based platform! To provide some context, a beta version is an early version of a program or application that contains most of the major features, but is not a fully finished product intended for release to the general public. Beta versions are often released to a select group of users for testing, evaluation and feedback. In this case, we will be releasing this version to both our beta testers (a group of likely users and tech advisors outside the company) as well as our investors and followers on StartEngine.

 

We opted to release the beta version to the StartEngine community to allow you, our investors and followers, to gain a clearer understanding of the look and feel of the site as well as provide feedback on the platform during this critical stage of the development process. Ultimately, the development of the BluCollr platform would not have been possible without your investment and continued support; you built this with us, and we want you to be part of the process!

 

Without further ado, you can access the beta version of BluCollr by navigating to our website (https://blucollr.com) and then clicking on the “BluCollr Beta” tab in the menu bar at the top of the homepage. The “BluCollr Beta” page includes a link to the beta version as well as instructions on how to create a test account. The page also includes a brief survey to allow you to provide feedback about your experience, if you wish to do so. While we greatly value your feedback, we would kindly ask that you do not post any feedback on the beta version directly to our StartEngine campaign page or on our website.

 

With the generous support of you, our investors, BluCollr is now a reality! In only a few short weeks, we will be launching BluCollr in our test market, and we can’t thank you enough for making this possible. We greatly appreciate your continued support and look forward to sharing additional updates on the final stages of the development process and our plans for launch in due course.

 

Kind regards,

Re: BluCollr Beta Version

Valued Investors,

We recently announced that development of the BluCollr web-based platform was nearing completion and that we plan to share the beta version of the platform with the StartEngine community in order to provide you, our investors and followers, with a clearer understanding of the look and feel of the site. As alluded to in our early May update, we have been alpha testing the platform over the last several weeks with our development team to evaluate and refine the platform’s design, functionality, and performance. During the course of this internal testing cycle, we ultimately decided to add a number of additional features to improve user interface (UI) and user experience (UX), as well as expand the social media capabilities of the platform. For example, we have integrated a full user-to-user messaging system, added video-sharing capabilities, expanded our newsfeed/dashboard functions to increase user connectivity, expanded our registration options to include Facebook and Google reciprocity, and added an optional rating system to enhance our user referral tools.

That being said, we want to ensure that you are able to experience the BluCollr platform for the first time with all of these additional features and functions, so we will be temporarily delaying the release of the beta version while our development team works to fully integrate and test these features. We expect to be able to release the beta version to you and our beta testers (a group of likely users and tech advisors outside of the company) within the next few weeks. To be clear, the beta version will be released prior to the close of our campaign to ensure that you have ample opportunity to explore the platform beforehand. We apologize for the delay, but we think it will be worth the wait. The beta version of the BluCollr platform will now be sleeker, more powerful, and enable greater connectivity between users.  

Thank you for your continued interest and support. We appreciate your patience and look forward to sharing the beta version of the BluCollr web-based platform with you in the coming weeks.


Kind regards, 


Chris Lawrence & Chris Carsten

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
