Potential investors are reminded that all investments entail risk. The companies with securities offerings on our website are generally small or early stage companies and are subject to risks inherent in investing in any small or early stage company as well as other risks specific to their business and operations. It is likely that the securities of these companies will be highly illiquid and require they be held for an indefinite period of time, or that they will have a limited market for resale. Therefore, potential investors should not invest in any of these companies unless they have no need for liquidity of their investment and can sustain a total loss of their investment. You should only invest an amount of money that you can afford to lose without changing your lifestyle.
Potential investors should thoroughly review the complete offering materials for any investment opportunity, particularly all risk factors, prior to investing in any offering, and become familiar with the investor requirements, investment limits and their ability to resell the securities offered.
