Any dated information is published as of its date only, and CrowdFundConnect does not undertake any obligation or responsibility to update or amend any such information.

The Service is available only to Accredited Investors who are at least 18 years old. You represent and warrant that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to form a binding contract, and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. CrowdFundConnect may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time.

Fund listings on this Site are only suitable for Accredited Investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risk associated with private investments. Securities sold through private placements are not publicly traded and, therefore, are less liquid. Additionally, Investors may receive restricted units that may be subject to holding period requirements. Fund offerings on CrowdFundConnect will target companies seeking private placement investments, which tend to be in earlier stages of development and have not yet been fully tested in the public marketplace. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. For those reasons, these offerings may be made available only to certain institutional investors and high net worth individuals and entities. As with all alternative investments, investors must meet certain eligibility tests to qualify as purchasers. Currently, entities must have assets of at least $5 million (or all individual owners meet accredited investor tests). Individuals must have a net worth of more than $1 million excluding primary residence or gross income for each of the last two years of at least $200,000 ($300,000 with spouse) with the expectation of the same income in the current year.
The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. The contents of this Site do not constitute financial, legal, or tax advice. Investors are solely responsible for conducting any legal, accounting or due diligence review. You should obtain investment and tax advice from your advisers before deciding to invest. Investment products are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and there is no bank guarantee.

The information contained in the Site has been prepared by without reference to any particular User's investment requirements or financial situation.
