Disqualification of Startups (Issuers)

Title III may not be used if the Issuer or certain other people have been the subject of certain disqualifying events during the last 10 years.

The “certain other people” are:

  • Any predecessor of the Issuer;
  • Any director, officer, general partner, or manager of the Issuer;
  • A person owning 20% or more of the Issuer’s voting power;
  • Any promoter associated with the Issuer;
  • Any person who will be paid for soliciting Investors; and
  • Any general partner, director, officer or manager of such a solicitor.

The “certain disqualifying events” include a long list of events, all involving improper actions in the securities business – for example, the conviction of a felony or misdemeanor in connection with the purchase or sale of any security, or the loss of license of a securities broker for misconduct. We will conduct background checks before allowing an Issuer to list on our Platform.
