Investing on Republic is free for Investors.
Companies pay only if they successfully reach their funding goal: 6% of the total funds raised in cash, and 2% as a Crowd Safe.
Companies raising on Republic may also use the proceeds of their successful
financing to pay for the escrow agent and other transaction-related fees. Related: how much does it cost to launch a campaign?
Example using a Crowd Safe: Equity Startup, Inc. raises $100,000 at $10M valuation and hits its funding goal, effectively selling an equivalent of 1% of its equity. Republic takes $6,000 and Crowd Safe with a $2,000 face value (0.02% in an equity equivalent).
Example using a Token DPA: Blockchain Startup, Inc. raises $100,000
and hits its funding goal, effectively selling $100,000 plus interest in tokens. Republic takes $6,000 and Token DPA with a $2,000 face value (later equivalent for cash or tokens).
Example using a Revenue Share: Revenue Startup, Inc. raises $100,000 and hits its funding goal, effectively selling $100,000 in debt with a revenue right. Republic takes $6,000 and a revenue right with a $2,000 face value (which will entitle Republic to payments as if Republic had put $2,000 into the offering).

Republic Core LLC (“Core”) provides technology and support services to OpenDeal Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, the “Republic Ecosystem”). The Republic Ecosystem allowed users of its services to acquire reward notes (each a “Reward Note”). Reward Notes do not entitle you to any asset, economic right, governance right, interest or other item that could lead you to expect to profit from the Reward Note. Core is also the issuer of the note token, a security (each a “Note Token”). Claiming any Note Tokens requires participating in and meeting all the requirements of a securities offering, and such an offering is not guaranteed, nor can your participation be assured.
Both Reward Note recipients and Note Token holders and as well as users of the site and services maintained by the Republic Ecosystem, regardless of and their activities on or relating to the Republic Ecosystem are subject to mandatory arbitration, are precluded to claim any class action procedure, and are subject to the applicable terms of service, in their entirety.
Republic Core LLC, with respect to a contemplated Regulation A offering, is conforming to the standards of testing the waters under Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“the Act”). This process allows companies to determine whether there may be interest in a potential offering of its securities. Core is not under any obligation to make an offering under Regulation A or otherwise. Core may choose to make an offering to some, but not all, of the people who indicate an interest in investing, and that offering may or may not be made under Regulation A. For example, Core may determine to proceed with an offering under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D, in which case it will offer securities only to accredited investors as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D of the Act.
If and when Republic Core conducts an offering under Regulation A of the Act, it will do so only once (i) it has filed an offering statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), (ii) the SEC has qualified such offering statement and (iii) investors have subscribed to the offering in the manner provided for in the offering statement. The information in the offering statement will be more complete than any test-the-waters materials and could differ in important ways. You must read the offering circular contained within the offering statement filed with and qualified by the SEC. No money or other consideration is being solicited at this time and if tendered, will not be accepted. No offer to buy securities in a Regulation A offering can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received until an offering statement is qualified with the SEC. Any offer to buy securities may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of its acceptance is given after the qualification date. Any indication of interest in a Republic Core offering involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.
