Core criteria we apply to review a company’s application include:
Applications failing to meet all three core criteria above will likely be rejected. We also consider a number of other non-exclusive factors when reviewing a company’s application, including:
Unlike the three core criteria, these soft factors will be evaluated in a holistic manner.
One strong element or deficiency will not necessarily make or break an application. However,
we generally need to be able to understand what the company does and where it is going, its
potential customers, team members and investors, as well as its finances.
We also expect Issuers will have a lawyer, accountant and a transfer agent. We can provide referrals for each. An escrow agent is required by Title III and we will facilitate you getting in touch with our preferred provider of these services.
