The 10% Bonus for StartEngine Shareholders

Osiris Media Corp. will offer 10% additional bonus shares for all investments that are committed by StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. shareholders who invested over $1,000 or made at least two investments in StartEngine's own offerings.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering. For example, if you buy 100 shares of Common Stock at $0.41 / share, you will receive 110 Common Stock shares, meaning you'll own 110 shares for $41. Fractional shares will not be distributed and share bonuses will be determined by rounding down to the nearest whole share.

This 10% Bonus is only valid for one year from the time StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. investors receive their countersigned StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. subscription agreement, unless their eligibility period has been extended through additional subsequent investments in StartEngine's own offerings.  

Investors will only receive a single bonus, which will be the highest bonus rate they are eligible for.

Irregular Use of Proceeds

The Company will not incur any irregular use of proceeds.

Osiris launches original podcast After Midnight

Today, Osiris Media released episode one of After Midnight, an original narrative podcast. At the end of the last millennium, Phish built a city for 80,000 people in the Everglades for their Big Cypress festival. In the midst of Y2K mania, Phish created a sanctuary for fans, far away from everything, and wrapped up the festival by playing a seven-hour set that lasted from the final minutes of the 20th century into the literal dawn of the new millennium.

Not only was Big Cypress the biggest millennium concert in the world, it also changed the way many people saw live music festivals. After Midnight will address the legacy of Big Cypress, along with the planning and execution. It will feature interviews with band members Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman, members of Phish’s crew, festival organizers, journalists, and many fans. 

This series will explore how Phish invented their own musical language, built an independent concert industry, and how both came together in the Florida Everglades for a performance that landed a 15-foot-long hot dog with headlights in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After Midnight is hosted and narrated by renowned music journalist Jesse Jarnow. 

Episode 1 highlights include: 

“I just always was very proud of the fact that we never had any sponsors or never allowed any corporate interests to align with our brand to try to leverage the special mojo we had with our audience for their own purposes. It was too sacred and special to ever allow any corporate interests to participate in that.” —John Paluska, former manager, Phish

“The idea was to play in the continental United States outside all night until the sun comes up. It’s the year 2000. Y2K was supposed to happen at the time. All the computers will be off. The world will come to an end. But we will all be together. Having pulled an all nighter. Planes will have fallen out of the sky. You won’t be able to get your money out of the bank. Remember? People actually thought that.” —Trey Anastasio, guitarist, Phish

“When Big Cypress came up it was like, oh my God. This is our opportunity to [play] outdoors, on New Year’s Eve. We’ll go from whenever the last set starts till sunrise—you know we were gonna go from dusk to daylight.” —Jon Fishman, drummer, Phish

“We’re thrilled to pay tribute to one of the most unique concerts in the history of rock music,” said RJ Bee, CEO of Osiris Media. “Jesse’s storytelling and knowledge provides the perfect foundation for bringing a diverse set of voices together to reflect on this monumental festival. We admire Phish for their legendary ability to ignore what everyone else in music is doing, and to blaze their own trail. After Midnight encapsulates that state of mind perfectly.”

Osiris announces new podcasts with David Crosby and Chris Pandolfi—and a unique live music experience

Osiris Media, a leading network of music podcasts, has announced the production of five original shows. These new shows help to bring more diverse music content to more listeners.

Inside the Musician’s Brain. Banjo virtuoso Chris Pandolfi of The Infamous Stringdusters will dive in deeply with artists from bluegrass and beyond. The first episodes feature Paul Hoffman of Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings and Sierra Hull. Premieres October 29.

Let Creativity Flow. This three-episode miniseries will tell the story of how technology is affecting the evolution of music collaboration. The series features interviews with experts from Splice, Union Square Ventures, Downtown Music, and members of The Disco Biscuits. It will be hosted and narrated by Amar Sastry. Premieres November 5.

After Midnight: Phish’s Big Cypress Festival. In December 1999, Phish drew 85,000 people to the Big Cypress Indian Reservation in Florida’s Everglades, making their music festival the largest Millennium Eve celebration on earth. As we look back at the festival, 20 years later, we’ll pay tribute to this unique festival—and examine the legacy for Phish and the music world. Hosted and narrated by renowned music journalist Jesse Jarnow, this five-episode series will draw on interviews with members of Phish and its crew, fan memories, and conversations with other people across the music industry. Premieres November 14.

Jam Just Happened. A first of its kind show, Jam Just Happened will bring together the intimacy of a podcast and the uniqueness of a live music experience. Every month, guitarist Scott Metzger (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, WOLF!, Rana) will host a jam session with a different group of high-profile musicians. Recorded in front of a live audience, the show will include audio and podcast components after each event. Premieres December 6.

David Crosby: In Conversation with Steve Silberman. NeuroTribes author Steve Silberman will be hosting a four-episode series with his good friend David Crosby. As Steve says: “For 50 years, David Crosby has been a major force in music, whether providing shimmering harmonies for the Byrds, transforming pop by turning the Beatles on to Indian music, penning haunting melodies like ‘Guinevere’ for Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, or exploring the outer reaches of folk and jazz-influenced rock for his own Sky Trails, CPR, and Lighthouse bands. I’m thrilled to be able to dig in deeply with one of the seminal architects of modern music to hear his inimitable take on his own famously tumultuous history, play some previously unheard deep cuts, and look ahead to the future of where music and the music industry are going.” Premieres December/January.

“Our listeners tell us that they want more podcasts and experiences that bring them closer to the artists and bands they love,” said Osiris Media CEO RJ Bee. “We are incredibly proud of all of these new shows, as they will bring our audiences new content while helping us to expand our focus to new artists, genres and important topics in music.”

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.
