Round One wants all users to be aware of specific risks related to Equity Crowdfunding Investments. In order to maintain a fair and objective community, the Intermediary is prohibited from providing investment advice or from specific endorsement. This list of risk factors outlined below is not a comprehensive document on risks to investments listed on this platform. Investors must perform their own due diligence and exercise discretion and good judgment in participating in Crowdfunding Campaigns.
Your decision to invest in a Crowdfunding Campaign is a personal investment decision made by you. No responsibility for the consequences of that decision is accepted by Round One or by any of its directors, agents, employees, or other members. ✩ Investing in our platform does not involve a regular return on your investment.
Your choice to invest in our Platform should at the very least, consider the following:
Investors must be aware that any business or venture, especially high-growth, startup, or innovative companies, carry with it an element of risk of failure. There is a substantial risk of loss of your entire invested capital when participating in equity crowdfunding ventures.
Business Risk is only the general term for all risks associated with business failure. Business Risk may also include factors external to the organization and management, such as country and economic risk. Issuer’s success is heavily dependent upon the competency of the issuer’s directors and officers.
Equity Crowdfunding Investments are only one form of a diverse array of investments and are considered highly speculative, with a low likelihood of consistent revenue, profitability, and dividend payment. The Intermediary cannot guarantee protections against loss of capital due to the valuation of your investments.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. You should not rely on any past performance as a guarantee of future investment performance. Forecasts are not a reliable indicator of future performance.
Most investors will likely be considered minority shareholders in any Equity Crowdfunding Issuer and may be negatively impacted by this status. As a minority shareholder, you will generally be a passive investor and typically will not have the right or ability to influence the direction of the company. ✩ While the Platform provides as much transparency as it is able to, the Intermediary cannot guarantee protections against dilution risk, management risk, and other provisions of the share purchase agreement of an Issuer.
Investors must be aware that there is no current secondary market for securities issued on this Platform. The ability to divest is significantly limited and there could be difficulty in selling your investment at a reasonable price or any price at all in the future. ✩ While the Platform may facilitate the transfer of assets related to a divestment, the Platform and Intermediary are unable to assist in finding buyers for primary-share-investors once a Campaign has concluded. Furthermore, the Intermediary does not guarantee divestments will be sold at fair value in any transaction subsequent to an Issuer’s initial Campaign.
