Risks of Investing through Launch Crowdfunding
Launch Crowdfunding Corp. (“Launch”) is a crowdfunding portal that connects investors with early stage companies seeking financing. Securities of start-ups, such as those offered through Launch Crowdfunding, are highly volatile investments that carry a great deal of risk. The companies conducting offerings through Launch are not subject to the same ongoing disclosure obligations as reporting issuers so you may not be provided with any ongoing information about the issuer and the investment. You risk losing the entire amount paid for your investment and you may not earn any return, such as dividends or interest. There is currently no market for any of the securities made available through Launch so you may never be able to sell the securities. Investments offered have not been reviewed or approved in any way by any securities regulator. You will not have the same legal rights as an investor investing pursuant to a prospectus or stock exchange. Using borrowed money to purchase securities involves greater risk.
Launch Crowdfunding is not a registered dealer under Canadian Securities Legislation but is an unregistered Start-up Crowdfunding Portal established pursuant to BC Instrument 45-535 and Multilateral Canadian Securities Administrators Notice 45-316 – Start-up Crowdfunding Registration and Prospectus Exemptions.
