Companies begin an inquiry via our online questionnaire. If the company meets the initial criteria, we schedule a conversation and request additional information. If we agree that the company and offering are a good fit for the platform, VeteranCrowd will present an engagement proposal to the company.
The amount varies by offering, but the minimum raise amount for a company through VeteranCrowd is $2,000,000. VeteranCrowd presents other options to companies wishing to raise smaller amounts of capital. Please contact us directly by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The timing varies but companies should expect it will take at least 90 days to complete a successful offering, and most clients allow 6-9 months for the total process. Not all companies will succeed in raising capital this way. Clients seeking to raise money through a Reg A+ offering must complete a review with the SEC which takes longer than 90 days generally before the offering is approved for general solicitation.
You do not have to be a veteran to invest in the opportunities presented on VeteranCrowd but you do have to qualify to participate in a specific offering. FINRA regulation dictates those qualifications based on the structure of the deal, and many require that investors be accredited.
Depending on the nature of the offering, some offerings are limited to Accredited Investors. Reg A+ offerings are open to all investors.
