Get to know Our team! Meet Our Marketing Manager!

Hello Soko Family! 

We all know how imperative it is to have a team to support the growth of a business. Thats why I wanted to take time to recognize a key player in our prior and future projects, David Hebron, Marketing manager at Soko Group Inc.!

 We worked with David for a few months prior to us bringing him on and we were astonished with what he has accomplished individually. (If you missed his bio you can read it below!) He originally did some drop-shipping for us as he ran his own e-commerce site called BLNCD Lifestyle. When we got to know David, we knew right away that he had the experience and skills that could launch Soko to the next level. We approached him with an offer and thankfully he accepted! He's a great a guy with a great attitude, and not to mention before we knew it, David was pumping out deals and marketing strategy left and right. With work ethic like that, it was an easy decision to bring him in full time from here on out.   

He is a determined and highly valued asset to the team here at Soko and will continue to be a large factor in seeing our marketing endeavors to Success! Bringing David on full-time to handle the workload that undoubtably comes with raising capital will include managing our partnership with Lyfe Marketing agency overseeing the social media posts and engagement, to procuring new PR relationships in distribution, advertising and events. (And knowing David, probably much much more!)

  We here at Soko are incredibly excited to see what the future will bring!


 We thank each and every one of you that have invested, followed, and even just shared our campaign with their friends and family. We are only just getting started!!

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.
