Traditionally, startup investors had to wait 5-10 years in order to see a return on their investment. 5-10 years is a long time to wait. We hope to change that with StartEngine Secondary, one of the first markets in the US where non-accredited investors can publicly trade investments in startups that have raised capital via Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+.

A company which intends to apply to list its securities on the marketplace will be subject to certain requirements which it may or may not be able to satisfy in a timely manner. Even if a company is qualified to list its securities on the market, there is no guarantee that a demand for these securities will exist. Even if a company does meet the requirements for listing its securities, we do not know the extent to which investor interest will lead to the development and maintenance of a liquid trading market. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.
