Once accepted by Republic and upon agreeing to our Terms, each company (known now as an “Issuer”) will need to provide Republic with and file certain information in an “offering statement” known as a Form C. Form Cs are filed with the SEC on the EDGAR platform. In order to submit a Form C and other filings with the SEC, the Issuer must first obtain a filing code, known as a CIK number. SEC filings should be prepared with the assistance of your lawyer and accountant.
Republic cannot provide legal or accounting services, but contact us if you need referrals to providers of these services.
Companies accepted by Republic can work on their Republic offering page and Form C disclosure at the same time. However, the offering page cannot go live until a Form C has been formally filed with the SEC.
Please note the utmost importance of ensuring that information on your Form C, offering page and related SEC filings is accurate and complete. If there is a material change after filing, you must amend Form C to include any material changes to prior information or new information that investors may consider to be material to their investment decision.
To file a Form C, you need a SEC filing code called a CIK. If you don't have a CIK yet, get one from SEC now in order to avoid delaying your fundraising. It can take up to 10 business days to receive your CIK after registering with the SEC.
To apply for a filing code, go to the EDGAR Filer Management portal, press the "Begin" button, then the "Apply for EDGAR access (new)" link and follow the instructions.
Please note that the SEC filer registration service only works between 10am and 5pm EST, Monday to Friday, excluding federal holidays.
Republic does not verify information provided by companies on this Portal and makes no assurance as to the completeness or accuracy of any such information. Additional information about companies fundraising on the Portal can be found by searching the EDGAR database.
