Why do I have to create an investor profile?

At Texas Equity Shares we operate on knowledge-based authentication so the identity of all investors and entrepreneurs is real and true.

The Texas State Securities Board is strict on these matters as to reduce and/or eliminate the possibility of fraud. Just as you do not want to lose money in a phony investment scheme, the entrepreneurs don’t want to lose time with fake investors profiles.

Creating your investor profile will allow you to interact with entrepreneurs and access their profile and company confidential information.

As a registered investor you will have access to free investment educational videos and the latest news in the industry. Moreover, we will send you regular updates about newly registered startups or recommended offerings based on your personal settings and preferences.

Another great advantage is that you can invite your friends or connections through social media to join you in your investing journey.
Do I have access to all the equity offerings?

Yes. All offerings that are compliant with our rules will get listed and be available to all investors.
When can I see confidential and privileged information about the Entrepreneurs and their offerings?

Once you find an offering in which you would like to invest, you must confirm your interest by requesting to follow the offering. At that time, the entrepreneur has to approve your request after reading your profile. Once you are approved you will have access to confidential and privileged information about the entrepreneur and the offering in the Virtual Data Room.
What is the valuation for? Why do I need that to make my investment decision?

We partnered with XXX CF Research and YYY to provide entrepreneurs with independent and unbiased valuation reports reflecting the true value of the equity.
In equity crowdfunding, entrepreneurs must present the investors with an accurate and professional valuation of the company to help them build a relationship based on confidence in a secure environment.

The valuation reports will help entrepreneurs show investors their projected revenue, cash flow, brand value and anything else related to potential growth.
Which startups should I fund?
Last Updated: Oct 31, 2014 12:09AM CDT
The decision is yours. At Texas Equity Shares we require all entrepreneurs to provide ample information about their business so the investors can make informed investing decisions.
 
Because we believe in the “wisdom of the crowds,” we will let the crowd decide what equity offerings get funded.
Do I need to conduct due diligence as an investor? How do I do that?

YES - YES - YES !!!
 It is certainly in your best interest. Here is a quick definition of due diligence (“DD”): “Research and analysis of a company done in preparation for a business transaction.” Better diligence in the crowdfunding process stands to support better investment decisions.

At Texas Equity Shares, all entrepreneurs must provide of self-disclosure including background checks and financial information before they can list an equity offering. Once the entrepreneur provides these documents, the equity offering will be posted on truCrowd. Therefore, the due diligence process is initiated by the entrepreneur through proactive due diligence.

As an investor you have the right to request any information from the entrepreneur and ask questions at any time.
When will the fundraising round close?

You will find all relevant information regarding closing in the offering details. All rounds have a 21 day viewing period with a maximum funding period of 90 days.

Where does the money I pledge go to?

When you pledge, your money will be moved in an escrow account. After the funding goal is reached, shares will be transferred to the new shareholders who are investors like you. Then the money will be moved from the escrow account to the entrepreneurs account. If the offering was cancelled, the money will be moved back to your account. The same thing will happen if you decide to unpledge.​
What will happen when the funding goal is reached?

When the funding goal is reached, the entrepreneur will prepare the share certificates and any other documents related to the transfer of equity. We partnered with XXX-YYY.com to provide an affordable option though the entrepreneur, who may also use their own provider. When the documents are ready, shares will be transferred to the investors.The money will then be moved from the escrow account to the entrepreneur account. . At this point, we will verify the equity has been properly transferred to you and release the funds to the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur is then the only party who can access the funds in the joint account.
