The Problem, The Solution

Before 2012, everyday retail investors were barred from investing in early-stage companies – and the returns of this asset class. That’s why serial entrepreneur and seasoned investor Howard Marks stepped in to fill the gap. Today, StartEngine is one of the biggest online platforms for startups investing in the game. We’re also the only equity crowdfunding platform to raise over $70 million of its own capital exclusively through the crowd. So far, 37,000 investors, including a star of ABC’s hit series Shark Tank, have joined our mission to democratize access to capital and open up startup investing for all.  

“To be honest with you, I had wanted to compete with Howard out of the gate…but after seeing what he had built with [the StartEngine] team, it made a lot of sense to join him” – Kevin O’Leary

First-Mover Advantage for Providing Potential Liquidity

One of the biggest challenges facing startup investing: liquidity. Typically, investors have to wait for an IPO or an acquisition to see a return on their investment. We aim to change that. Our pilot program of StartEngine Secondary has already helped over 1,200 investors to trade more than $1.4M worth of shares in startups and collectible assets. Now we’re gearing up to become the go-to platform for trading early-stage companies following their funding rounds. 


*Even if a company has quoted its securities on StartEngine Secondary, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time, if at all, or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.

**Completion of the acquisition is subject to closing conditions and regulatory approval. See additional information here.

We DOUBLED Referrals from Scouts in Q3

In June, we more than doubled the referral bonus for Scouts to $10,000. The result? More referrals from our Scouts than the first two quarters of 2023…combined.

We’ll pay $10,000 to anyone who refers a founder that signs and is deemed eligible to raise on StartEngine. Lear more about Scouting for StartEngine.

Crunching the numbers – When you do the math, a hefty referral bonus is well worth it. Over the life of the program, founders referred by Scouts have raised over $60 million – with $16 million of that total coming in 2023 alone. So doubling Scouts leads could equate to significant revenue potential as we head into 2024.

Our best bets have always been on the crowd itself. It’s why StartEngine is one of the only crowdfunding platforms to raise its own capital from investors like you. Join us and invest today.

My portfolio value 2 months ago showed 7.5 Y units and now shows 5.5 Y units. I don't know what happened that it was changed. Start Engine shares value are the one that seem to show some value change? How can we find what's going on? I also received an email regarding bankruptcy of PrimeTrust which seems to be the banking partner of StartEngine. Did anyone else received the same? Has Start Engine clarified anything on this? Is it the impact of the same? How have the share holders been impacted?

Hi Howard, I submitted my documents to be approved as an accredited investor last week; however, my status still says “Reviewing Documents.” What is the expected turnaround time to be approved? Also, once approved, how do accredited investors get an allocation to SE Private? Sounds like a very interesting opportunity. Thanks again in advance!

At $1.32B in valuation you will never get your head above water. Think before you put money in. A shark would pass. In a IPO the indiser shark will go first you will be holding a money loosing investment. This is full on Reg CF and not your friends and family round. Crowfunding is about to get a massive wake up call. If REG CF is pulled by congress your investment is ZERO.

Would like to see a means (acceptable to most banks - Plaid isn't always and using CC is inconvenient), to be able to routinely and regularly transfer funds (other than an ACH transfer) to my StartEngine account. Thus, ready at any time to apply them to various startups as build a portfolio of investments. Another possibility is to then also provide a way to create a custodial account for children/grandchildren and invest on their behalf. Teach via experience when they are young.

For 2024 products. Seems like a lot was mentioned in the last Webinar. SE Private (Allow Reg D, Factoring, Bridge funding) - Similar to offerings at Percent.com or Yieldstreet.com, webstreet.co - A competitor of SE has offering a smaller offerings from those sources as alternatives. Some may be limited to SE Private and others may be available to all SE investors. SE Instant Secondary (trade like previously in secondary shares that were sold via SE can be bought and sold and settled faster with bid/ask table). Possibly even allow listing of tender offerings from companies wanting to buyback their shares. Need more founder regular updates. About 30% of the companies I've invested in do regular emails, but it would be nice to have a place in SE to see only the updates since the close of the round, so I don't need to keep track of all the emails. Would like to see more investment stages: SAFE Notes, Revenue Sharing offerings or Series A+ or higher. Android App - I know it's in the works Updated performance dashboard - Being able to easily see the most recent share price to track "current" value of a position. See what price it was bought and SE shows what the last offering price was. (we can find it if we look up individual companies via the marketplace) so just a way to feed that share price data into the companies we already have showing in SE. I'm sure there are more but I'm also interested in what others have thought of. Put together a survey after you have an extensive list and let the people vote. Thanks for listening to the investors. Looking forward to SE changing the way the rest of the world invests.

A critical problem the industry faces is ghosting from founders once their round closes. Happens with about 40% of the startups based on my own experience and talking to other investors. It's a terrible user experience and likely prevents many from investing again. Would love to see a feature where the founder selects the communication cadence in the setup phase of the campaign (quarterly, annual, etc), and their selection is then displayed on the fundraise page. Sets the expectations up front for both the founder and investors for when updates will be given.

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.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.

SE BB enables shareholders to communicate interest in potential sales of shares in private companies and investors to discover, review, and potentially invest in private companies. As a bulletin board platform, SE BB provides a venue for investors to access information about private company offerings and connect with potential sellers. SE BB is distinct and separate from StartEngine Secondary (“SE Secondary”), which is an SEC-registered Alternative Trading System (ATS) operated by SE Primary. SE Secondary facilitates the trading of securities by matching orders between buyers and sellers and facilitating executions of trades on the platform.
