Reasons Icon

MOONSHOT OPPORTUNITY: Founded by Emmy-winning digital pioneers, Legion M is using disruptive new securities laws (the JOBS Act) to innovate in a multi-trillion dollar global industry.

Reasons Icon

INFLECTION POINT: The company is at an inflection point, with growing revenue and some of the biggest announcements in our history (see below).

Reasons Icon

MAKE HISTORY: Join nearly 30,000 investors uniting to create the next great media company!



  • In November of 2021 Legion M announced that legendary actor/artist William Shatner had joined the Legion M advisory board, officially making him the first Legion M shareholder to go to space (and the first to helm a Federation Starship!)
  • We’re producing a new movie! In October we completed principle photography for The Man In the White Van, an elevated true-crime thriller starring Sean Astin, Ali Larter, Madison Wolfe, Brec Bassinger and Skai Jackson. The film is produced by Legion M and Garrison Film with financing provided by Garrison Film. The film is expected to release in 2022.
  • Forthcoming Stock Split. Legion M shareholders recently passed a proposal for a 10:1 stock split. This is the last chance to purchase shares before the split, which is slated to occur after the $3.85MM cap for Round 8 has been reached.



We founded Legion M because we saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an entertainment company OWNED by fans.


Why? Because no matter where you sit in the value chain, a built-in audience is one of the most valuable assets in entertainment. By uniting fans as shareholders, we’re creating a built-in audience for everything we do. 

Legion M’s logo is the Roman numeral for 1 million. That's because our long-term goal is to unite 1 million fans as shareholders of the company, creating a massive grassroots audience — a Legion of fans — that we believe could make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.


Emmy-Winning Digital Pioneers

Co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison are Emmy-winning serial entrepreneurs and digital pioneers. In 1999, the duo (along with one other cofounder) started MobiTV, the first company in the U.S. to launch live streaming television on mobile phones. From 2003 to 2009, the trio grew the company into a worldwide leader in streaming media with 300+ employees, more than $100 million of VC investment, and an Emmy Award for innovation in television. 

In addition, Legion M has attracted a top-tier advisory board that includes legendary actor William Shatner, billion-dollar producer Dean Devlin, author/entrepreneur Eric Ries (author of “The Lean Startup"), and current/former executives from Netflix, Sony, Lucasfilm, Epic Games, and MGM. 


Invest in a Diversified Slate of Projects

Since Legion M was founded in 2016, we’ve developed a slate of projects diversified across genre, medium, business model, and risk profile. We’ve demonstrated an ability to work with top tier partners, from billion-dollar producers like Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate, Leverage, The Librarians) and Michael Uslan (Batman, The Dark Knight, Joker) to renowned creators like Stan Lee (creator of the Marvel Universe) and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats) and top-shelf distribution partners including NEON (Parasite, I Tonya), Bleecker Street (The Assistant, Beasts of No Nation), Searchlight (JoJo Rabbit, The Shape of Water), SpectreVision (No Man of God, Color out of Space) and Nederlander Worldwide Productions (Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King).


Note: This chart shows gross revenue only. For complete audited financial statements along with management's discussion and analysis of the results, please see the offering document.

  1. Legion M's share price is not set on an open market the same way a publicly traded stock is. Instead, the company sets the stock price, and the public decides whether or not they would like to buy it.
  2. Beginning in Round 7, Legion M’s offerings included the opportunity to receive bonus shares as a reward, which changes the effective share price paid by the investor. 
  3. The average effective share price for Round 7 was determined by dividing the total amount raised by the total number of shares issued (inclusive of bonus shares). 
  4. The effective share price for Round 8 depends on the amount invested and the bonuses (if any) the investor qualifies for.


Entertainment is a “hit-driven business” 

Entertainment can be extremely lucrative, but is also unpredictable. Consumer trends, technologies, and distribution models are constantly changing. Movies and TV shows are expensive bets, with budgets that can reach the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. Every project has potential to be a breakout hit...but even the biggest names in the business sometimes strike out.

How can you improve your odds of success?


Harnessing the Power of Fans

While technologies and trends will come and go, there’s been one constant in entertainment since the earliest days of silent film: the importance of the audience. It's the audience (or lack thereof) that determines success or failure, and the audience that’s responsible for every penny in ticket sales, subscription fees, and advertising revenue.

That's why a company owned by fans is such a powerful idea. When we pool our collective power, we have potential to:

  • Fill theaters opening night
  • Negotiate better terms
  • Attract the best talent
  • Harness the "wisdom of the crowd" to make decisions
  • Find the next big thing
  • Reduce downside risk
  • Increase the chance of creating a hit

We believe that by harnessing the power of fans, Legion M can create SUSTAINABLE LONG TERM COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES that could potentially make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.



Most companies view investors simply as a source of capital. For Legion M, they are the foundation of our business. We are a community as well as a corporation, and our job is to create value for this community with things like:

  • Invitations to red carpet premieres
  • Set visits
  • Roles as extras in our films
  • Special events (e.g. Stan Lee Handprint Ceremony, Saturn Awards, etc)
  • Opening weekend meetups for movie releases
  • Online Q&A’s with actors, directors, and other Hollywood insiders
  • Special Investor-Only offers, discounts, and invitations
  • Lounges at events like Comic Con and Sundance Film Festival
  • FILM SCOUT app and Elite Scout Program
  • Inclusion in the Legion M production credit 

The wonderful thing about a fan-owned company is that financial ROI and fun are not mutually exclusive. The more engaged and excited our audience is, the more buzz and value we create for the project, which in turn increases the project’s chances of success to the benefit of the company and all of its shareholders.



Legion M has growing revenue from a diversified array of business models. We focus on areas where we can use our community to create competitive advantages, including: 


Let’s Make an M-Shaped Dent in the Universe!

Entertainment is a multi-trillion dollar industry, and we believe Legion M is the sort of idea that can transform it. If we’re successful in achieving our goal of 1 million shareholders, we believe Legion M could become one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.

PROJECT UPDATE: Setback for our Streaming Series

Legion M has been on a winning streak lately, but today I’m afraid we’ve got some disappointing news to report.

First, a story...

One of the earliest investors in MobiTV (the first startup Paul, myself, and Phillip Alvelda founded in 1999) was a highly distinguished individual named Bobby Ray Inman. Prior to becoming a venture capitalist, Bob was a 4 Star Admiral in the US Navy. He also served as Director of the NSA and Deputy Director of the CIA. 

As a career military man, Admiral Inman was an imposing figure who commanded respect. And as one of our nation's top intelligence officials, he was extraordinarily smart.  We're friendly with Bob now, but to be honest we were all a little afraid of him back then.

Bob taught us many things, and has had a huge influence on the entrepreneurs Paul and I are today. I recall during one of our first board meetings when he told us:

"Both good things and bad things are going to happen to this company - it's inevitable. You need to tell me both. I never get upset about bad things, but I get mad as hell when people don’t tell me about them."

This statement summarizes the way Paul and I feel about sharing news with our community. As managers of the company, we work for you. Part of that means sharing the news -- good, bad, and ugly. And while most of the time we post updates to celebrate the good news, today we need to share some of the ugly.

Now, the news:

In August of 2021 Legion M signed a deal with a major streaming company for the sale of our first TV series. Due to confidentiality agreements we have not been able to reveal the the name of the series or the partner, but we've promoted it with statements like the following from our StartEngine profile: 

This project has been a big deal for Legion M. The long-form legal agreement took over 8 months to negotiate. The series was expected to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to Legion M over the coming years, with an opportunity to grow over time. Most importantly, this deal represented a significant inflection point, as Legion M graduated from the immeasurable ranks of producers attempting to package and sell a TV series in Hollywood to the much more exclusive community of producers who have successfully packaged and sold a TV series in Hollywood. 

Since the deal was signed last August, the streamer has been working in earnest on the series. They staffed a writers’ room and completed two full seasons of episode outlines (our deal was for 2 seasons of the series). After the first season’s outlines were approved by the streamer, the writers completed the first full season of scripts. Everything seemed to be moving towards production starting later this year, with an expected release in 2023.

Until a few weeks ago when our streaming partner informed us that, in the course of making some difficult business decisions, they had to cut the project from their slate. Ugh.

They told us their decision was not due to any creative issues with the show, but because of a new mandate that changed the streamer’s overall content strategy. These sorts of situations are all too common in Hollywood. If you follow the news, there's no shortage of “strategic changes” and show cancellations (animated and otherwise) reported in recent months. While it's extremely frustrating for those that have invested months or years of their lives into these projects, this is simply part of doing business in Hollywood. Our show isn't the first to get shelved due to a change in company strategy, and it certainly won't be the last. 

What does this mean for Legion M?

While this is a disappointing setback for Legion M, we don't expect the impact to be too severe in the overall scheme of things. This is just one project -- we have dozens of others on our slate. The expected revenue would have been nice, but only represents a small portion of our overall run rate. As a company focused primarily on the long-term growth of our community and building competitive advantages, this feels more like a missed opportunity than a blow to our core business. And as we mentioned, these setbacks are all too common in Hollywood -- to be successful we must build a company capable of withstanding them. 

It’s also worth noting that while this particular deal with this particular streamer is dead, there is still reason to be hopeful about the project. Our creative and producing teams continue to be excited and committed to pushing the project forward. Our former streaming partner has indicated a willingness to negotiate a "turnaround agreement" that would allow us to take back the project (including the outlines and scripts) so we can try to sell it elsewhere. Since this series was not previously shopped (it was part of a “first look” deal that allowed our former streaming partner to lock it up before anyone else had a chance to see it), we believe there are other potential buyers in the marketplace. 

No matter what happens from here, we feel like this project has already been instrumental in allowing Legion M to "level up" within the industry. We have a large number of new projects in development that we're hoping to sell. The milestone we reached with this deal – closing a deal for a series with a top streamer – still stands. We’ve proven that we can package and sell IP. 

Bad luck may have scuttled this deal, but that will always be a risk outside our control. If we can continue executing on the things within our control, we’re confident our breaks will come. 

Onward and Upward,

Jeff, Paul, and the team at Legion M

Breaking News: Legion M Uniting Fans to Crowdfund and Produce William Shatner Documentary with Exhibit A Pictures.

Lot's of news coming out today! We'll follow up with some analysis later, but for now we're just going to share the press release. This just hit the wire at 8AM PST, and already has been covered by Variety, Deadline, TheWrap, and Indiewire.


Fans to Have an Unprecedented Opportunity to Participate in Feature Film About the Life of the Celebrated Icon with Footage to Debut During Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con

For more information, or to make a non-binding reservation, please go to https://join.legionm.com/william-shatner-documentary/

San Francisco, CA - June 30, 2022 - Today Legion M and Exhibit A Pictures are announcing a new documentary directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, in which William Shatner takes off the countless masks he's worn throughout his storied career, to reveal the man behind one of the most recognizable faces in the world.

In truly unique fashion, Legion M, the world's first fan-owned entertainment company, is allowing fans to invest directly in the project. Unlike a Kickstarter or IndieGogo campaign, these investors are doing more than just providing the funds to produce the film -- they also own a share of any potential profits the documentary earns. Investment terms have not been released yet, but beginning today fans can sign up to make a non-binding, no-obligation reservation HERE. Reservation holders will be the first to know when the offering opens, and will be given priority if it sells out.

The producers will be providing an early look at some of the footage on pop culture's biggest stage later this month during a Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con featuring William Shatner and moderated by actor/director/comedian Kevin Smith (“Jay and Silent Bob” franchise, “Clerks” franchise)

At 91 years old, William Shatner is an iconic actor, artist, and astronaut(!) best known for his legendary role in “Star Trek” as Captain Kirk that spanned nearly 30 years across film and television, as well as the titular character in “T.J. Hooker” and the television series, “Boston Legal.”

Said Bill Shatner: "For years I've had people approaching me to do a documentary about my life, but I turned them all down because it didn’t feel like the right fit. Alexandre and I hit it off right away, and when I heard how Legion M wanted to incorporate audiences to be a part of it, it was perfect. Fans have been responsible for my career -- it only seems right that they should own this doc."

Legion M is the first entertainment company designed from the ground up to be owned by fans. With more than 35,000 shareholders, the company has had a hand in developing, producing, and/or releasing nearly a dozen projects over the last 6 years, including COLOSSAL (starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis), MANDY (starring Nicolas Cage), ARCHENEMY(starring Joe Manganiello) and recently wrapped production on the film NANDOR FODOR AND THE TALKING MONGOOSE (starring Simon Pegg, Minnie Driver and Christopher Lloyd). 

Said Legion M co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison in a joint statement: "From make-believe starship captain to a real-life rocketman, William Shatner has led one of the most unique and best-lived lives on the planet. While we all know him from his iconic roles, the REAL William Shatner is even more interesting. We're thrilled to be working with Alexandre and the top-notch team at Exhibit A, and excited to give fans around the world an opportunity to be a part of Bill’s legacy."

Dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of our global cinematic and pop culture heritage, Exhibit A Pictures specializes in long-form documentary films that celebrate and deconstruct the defining popular trends and icons of our time. Alexandre O. Philippe, Kerry Deignan Roy and Robert Muratore are original founding partners of the US-based documentary film company, which first came together for the pop-culture breakout THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS (SXSW 2010). Since that time, the team has produced eight features, including DOC OF THE DEAD (SXSW 2014), 78/52: HITCHCOCK’S SHOWER SCENE (Sundance 2017), MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN (Sundance 2019), LEAP OF FAITH: WILLIAM FRIEDKIN ON THE EXORCIST (Venice 2019, Sundance 2020) and LYNCH/OZ (Tribeca 2022). 

Said director Alexandre O. Philippe: "I grew up watching Bill Shatner on a black-and-white television in Switzerland. My first memories of him are from Columbo and The Twilight Zone. He is a modern Renaissance man. Ubiquitous. Unavoidable. His range as an actor (Roger Corman’s The Intruder, anyone..?) is as staggering as the depth of his wisdom and curiosity; and I couldn’t be more excited by this opportunity to craft an up close and personal portrait of a man who fascinates me, through some of the important themes he openly tackles in his most vulnerable autobiographical songs. This intimate film will illuminate little-known and rarely seen aspects of Bill’s career and philosophy, and also re-examine some of his most iconic roles and cultural moments through a brand-new lens."

Alexandre O. Philippe and Exhibit A Pictures are managed by Peter Van Steemburg of XYZ Films.

Over the past few years there has been an explosion in the number of ways an average investor can invest their money. In the "olden days" (i.e. 5-10 years ago) retail investing was a stuffy suit-and-tie sort of affair that felt inaccessible to most. The things available to invest in -- stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. -- had been well established for decades.

Today the barriers to entry are gone, and anyone can invest with a click on their phone. The world of assets you can invest in now includes things that were previously inaccessible (e.g. fine art, exotic cars, and even startup companies like Legion M) as well as things that didn't even exist a few years ago (e.g. crypto currency and NFTs). 

Investors' biggest problem today isn't ACCESS to investment opportunities, but INFORMATION that allows them to separate the signal from the noise.

This is one of the big reasons that Legion M signed on as an executive producer for the upcoming documentary feature This is Not Financial Advice. Produced by the exceptional documentary team at Optimist, the film promises to "explore the psychology of investing through the story of the "Dogecoin Millionaire" (a guy who cashed out his life savings to invest in a joke cryptocurrency) and a generation of new investors powered by the internet and social media." In addition to being wildly entertaining, the documentary serves as an informative look at the investment landscape of today, contrasting some of the wildly different strategies investors employ as they attempt to conquer it.

As an executive producer, Legion M has made an equity investment in the production of the documentary with potential to earn revenue based on its performance. In addition, we have a marketing partnership in place in which Legion M will earn revenue and work with the Optimist team to promote the film.

The release date is TBD, but is expected to be sometime in late 2022 or 2023. We'll share more information once we've got it, but in the meantime you can learn more by visiting the landing page.

Kit Harrington joins the cast of "Mary's Monster"

In case you missed the email last week, we wanted to make sure you saw the exciting Legion M news out of Cannes Film Festival! 

Kit Harington (Game Of Thrones) has signed on to Mary's Monster, a film Legion M is executive producing in conjunction with with James Corden’s production company Fulwell 73 & Rose Pictures. Clara Rugaard (I Am Mother; Teen Spirit; The Rising) has been cast in the lead role of Mary Shelley. BAFTA (the UK equivalent of the Academy Awards) award-winning director Farren Blackburn (The Fades, Daredevil) is attached to direct.

Mary's Monster is a strikingly original, high-concept rock ‘n roll take on Mary Shelley’s mental struggle to write her seminal novel Frankenstein. This genre-busting film brings to life the monster like never before, appearing to Mary as the manifestation of her own fragile and damaged psyche. Re-imagining the anarchic, turbulent, hedonistic spirit of the Romantic era, Mary’s Monster will redefine period film for the modern YA audience.

The film is seeking finance and distribution at the Cannes film market with Metro International and CAA Media Finance repping.

For the purposes of Legion M's financial reporting, this film is classified as a development project because it has not yet secured production financing. If you aren't familiar with the way Legion M defines our projects, here's a description from our SEC filings: 

Development generally refers to the earliest stages of the content production cycle, when production companies invest time, money, and “sweat equity” to develop, package, and sell movies, TV series and other entertainment projects. Examples of development activities include reading and evaluating scripts, licensing IP, packaging talent (e.g. showrunners, actors, directors), creating pitch materials, and pitching projects to financiers, studios, streaming services, networks, distributors and other potential partners. The goal of development is typically to package a project for financing and/or sale so it can be produced.

In the case of Mary's Monster, Legion M has attached to the film as an Executive Producer. We've invested development money with a chance to earn a return if the film enters production. We also have a stake in the backend with potential to generate revenue based on the film's success, and are exploring the potential of merchandise and/or marketing partnerships.

Legion M Executive Producing Simon Pegg / Minnie Driver Movie "Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose"

Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose stars Simon Pegg (left), Minnie Driver (middle), and is directed by Adam Sigal (right).

Last week Legion M announced a new feature film project: Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose. The movie -- directed by Adam Sigal -- tells the entirely true (seriously!) story of a  Hungarian-American para-psychologist from the 1930's named Nandor Fodor who traveled to the the Isle of Man to investigate reports of a talking mongoose named Gef (pronounced "Jeff"). 

This week we're excited to release more information on the cast, led by the one and only Simon Pegg (Star Trek, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Mission Impossible, Star Wars) playing the lead role of Nandor Foder and Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, Rosaline) playing the role of Nandor's assistant "Anne". The cast is rounded out by Tim Downie (Good Omens), Ruth Connell (Supernatural), Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones), Gary Beadle (In the Heart of the Sea) and Drew Moerlin (V/H/S). 

Deadline broke the story with an article that included a quote from Legion M:

“Our shareholders have made it made it clear they value original stories and storytellers,” added Legion M’s co-founder and President, Jeff Annison. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Adam, Simon, and Minnie to bring this wildly imaginative story to the big screen.” For more, read the whole article on Deadline.

Legion M is an executive producer on the film, with a multi-prong deal that includes an equity investment, marketing and sales support, on-set activations, and merchandising. We also have a limited number of set visits available for Legion M investors who can get themselves to Leeds, UK -- click here to learn more

Like most film investments, Legion M's financial ROI will depend on the long-term success of the movie. We have multiple avenues from which to potentially generate revenue, including return on our equity investment, marketing fees, sales commissions, and merchandise.  That said, we believe this is one of those projects that will pay off no matter how well the film does. That's because -- like all our projects -- we evaluate success not just by the revenue it generates (which is nice), but also its ability to grow the size of our community (which we believe is THE KEY to our long-term success) and help us "level up" to bigger and better projects. The opportunity to work closely with beloved icons like Simon and Minnie -- as well as an exciting emerging voice in director Adam Sigal -- is one we hope will pay off for years to come.

Onward and Upward!


Round 8 SOLD OUT! So what comes next?

THANK YOU to each and every one of the 6,676 investors who made Round 8 the most successful in Legion M history. After selling out our initial cap of $3,000,000 earlier this year, we went back to the SEC and increased the cap to $3,850,000. Then in April it sold out again! 

This is good news for ALL Legion M shareholders as it show our momentum is continuing to grow. We just released our 2021 annual report (more on that in a subsequent update), and feel more bullish than ever about where we're headed. We don't know the exact shareholder count yet (we won't until we get disbursement lists from StartEngine), but we expect to have over 35,000 shareholders. And we're just getting started...

Now that round 8 is complete we've got a lot of exciting announcements to make. Here's a quick preview of some of the things to come:

  • NEW PROJECTS. We've got a bunch of great new projects to announce in the coming weeks, including some of our biggest and best projects yet!
  • STOCK SPLIT. StartEngine has told us it could take up to 60 days for them to fully close out the round, but as soon as it does we plan to split the stock, exchanging 10 Legion M post-split shares for every 1 pre-split share owned. 
  • WORLDWIDE TOAST. Once the dust settles on Round 8, we'll schedule a "Worldwide Toast" livestream where we can all raise a glass to what we've accomplished, and all that is yet to come.
  • HOLLYWOOD READERS ROOM. If you've taken the latest M-Pulse, you know what this refers to. If not, please take the latest M-Pulse!

As a fan-owned company, our strength comes from our size. For this reason, we believe that growing the legion is the single most important thing we can do to improve the company's odds of success. With a stated goal of 1 million shareholders, we expect that to include many more rounds of equity crowdfunding, starting with Round 9 which is expected to kick off later this year and has the potential to be the biggest push in Legion M history.

In the meantime, we just wanted to welcome all our new investors and say how honored we are to have you on the team.  As you know, the Legion M staff is investing alongside you -- not just with our money (almost everyone at Legion M works for below-market salaries in exchange for options in the company), but also our blood, sweat and tears. We are incredibly humbled by each and every one of you who is willing to entrust us with your investment, and are committed to making the most of it -- for all our sakes. What we're doing has never been done before, but fortune favors the bold.

Round 8 Ends Saturday -- Last Chance to Invest before the Split!

Just a quick reminder that Legion M's 8th round will end at 11:59PM on Saturday. StartEngine has cleared out all of the unfunded investments, and there is currently a little over $100K in space available. THERE WILL NOT BE A WAITLIST WHEN THE ROUND ENDS. Instead we'll retire the Round 8 terms and completely close all the investments so we can execute the 10-to-1 stock split (where every share of Legion M stock is turned into 10 shares) passed by our shareholders earlier this year (click here to read more).  

Onward and Upward!

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.
