As an Investor, Can I Lose Money?
You very well might. If you're doing this solely to make money, stop now. Investing in private companies is risky. If you invest in private companies, you could lose all...
the money you put in. You could get knotted up in weird tax situations that no one anticipated. You could find you can't get your money out: in general private company investments aren't liquid. You could encounter entrepreneurs (or other investors!) that are flat out bat shit crazy.
You could also have a blast, meet cool folks, change the world, and maybe even make some money.
We offer absolutely no guarantees. It could go either way, or some other way. By signing up for this, you're taking the personal responsibility to do your own investigations, make your own decisions, and live with the outcomes, whatever they may be.
We don't endorse or make recommendations on any of the deals we communicate. In fact we can't, by law. Just because we send it to you doesn't mean we've reviewed it, approved it, like it, or anything. The same goes if we, as FI, or individually, decide to invest in a deal. And, we don't offer any opinion on whether the entrepreneurs are telling the truth, the whole truth, or a pack of lies. It's all like spit in the wind, but maybe not as gross.
We're not regulated by anyone, other than the general laws that every business and every person has to follow.
Net net: look out!
