We created seriesOne to embrace the Jumpstart Our Business Startup Act (JOBS Act) liberation of securities crowdfinance, enabling investors to support new businesses. Start-ups and young businesses are the engine of innovation and job creation, yet banks and venture capitalists only support a small percentage of those that are deserving, and until now, the average person was shut out from investing in them. We founded the parent company to seriesOne in 2013 because we thought there was a better way to finance businesses and to enable investors to directly participate regardless of their net worth. We lobbied at the federal and state levels to help advance the JOBS Act.
Early-stage companies are far more likely to fail and are much riskier investments than established companies. However, new companies are also where the greatest innovations take place, and it is the development of new companies that creates jobs and drives our economy forward. That said, you should only make this type of investment if you believe in the management team, their vision, and business model, and if you think the company has a good chance of being successful. Never invest more money than you can afford to lose without changing your lifestyle.
seriesOne is a funding portal that acts as an intermediary, connecting investors with businesses that need to raise money. seriesOne does not provide advice or make recommendations about which business you should invest in. In an effort to reduce fraud, we initially screen companies before clearing them to fundraise on seriesOne, but you should conduct your own due diligence on each company to decide which prospective investments, if any, are right for you. The information regarding companies on seriesOne is provided by the companies themselves. seriesOne may assist a company in presenting this information, but we do not verify its accuracy or endorse the company. If you are going to invest in a seriesOne offering, make sure you read and understand the offering documents first.
There is no guarantee that investors will receive a return on their investment or a return of their capital. It depends on many factors, such as the evolution of the company, its services, and products; the way the market evolves; etc. The process can take many years.
