How Raising
Capital Works

Application

StartEngine reviews every company application internally to determine whether they meet our compliance and eligibility requirements and are a fit for equity crowdfunding. If it's a good match, we move forward!

Step Two

Story

Tell your story in your own words. Build and design your campaign page to attract investors. Our creative team will help you!

Step Three

Set your own terms

What's your valuation? What kind of security do you want to sell and how much of it? it's all up to you.

Step Four

Legal

We request corporate documents like Articles of Incorporation and Board Resolutions to approve your fundraise.

Step Five

Financial

You have 2 options:

Save on upfront cost and self-certify your financials to raise up to $107K

Use one of our low-cost, preferred CPA vendors and get a 2-year independent financial review done in order to raise up to $1.07M from the start.


Don’t worry — if you start with self-certified financials, you can always commission the financial review during your offering in order to raise more than 107K.
