Risk note: while Republic’s team diligently and carefully screens all startups, we do not give any investing advice or assume responsibility for your losses. It is your responsibility to pick the companies you believe in. Republic does not and cannot recommend or endorse any company or offering. You should not invest unless you can afford to lose your entire investment—your investment won't be liquid or freely tradeable, so it is important to invest what you are comfortable losing.
Investing is risky and many investments are likely to lose value over time. While you can earn big, never invest more than you're comfortable losing and never expect future liquidity or the right to a return.
Please review our terms of service.
Set realistic expectations: there is no way to know how long an investment
could take to become valuable or sellable.
Spread your investments across multiple companies and asset classes
to diversify financial risk.
Review the terms of each deal carefully, including rights associated with the offered securities. You generally will not have the same rights as earlier investors or accredited investors (including voting and information rights).

As an investor in a crowdfunding offering, you will likely have fewer rights than other investors. For example, Crowd SAFE holders typically do not have any information or voting rights and Token DPA holders can never own part of the issuing company. Your rights may vary company to company and it’s important that you review and understand them before you invest.

Just because a founder has had success with a prior company doesn't mean he or she will succeed with their current startup.
And they generally don't need your permission to do so. Plans and forecasts are not predictions of the future.
As a company raises money, the ownership interest of each past investor will be diluted. Crypto issuers may decide to mint or expand their token allocations. Be aware your stake may not be set.
