Frequently Asked Questions
 

1. What types of companies does CrowdWatch track?

Crowdnetic specializes in tracking online offerings filed under 506(c). Additionally, we track SEC filings and other private company raises.

2. What is 506(c)?

Rule 506 of Regulation D allows for a special type of exemption that allows for a company to broadly solicit and generally advertise an offering; however, the company must take reasonable steps to ensure that the investors qualify as accredited.

For additional information, please view the SEC’s website: http://www.sec.gov/answers/rule506.htm

3. What types of securities are tracked?

CrowdWatch tracks Equity, Debt, Convertible Debt, Revenue Sharing and Real Estate offerings.

4. How do you obtain this data?

In order to appear on the CrowdWatch feed, private company intermediaries or portals are required to publish offering and company data to the Crowdnetic market data platform in real-time.

5. Why are there multiple listings for the same private companies?

Companies may choose to list on more than one intermediary as well as conduct concurrent raises with different security types. When Crowdnetic compiles its Quarterly Report, it makes reasonable determinations to remove these duplicate offerings.

6. What is the advantage of using CrowdWatch?

CrowdWatch simplifies the investment process by delivering real-time data from top equity, debt and real estate crowdfunding platforms and provides analytics from leading marketplace-lending platforms.

7. How will I get billed?

CrowdWatch offers three pricing plans: Monthly ($129), Semi-Annually ($699), and Annually ($1,150). The credit card you provide us will be charged automatically at the appropriate time for the plan you selected and you will receive a receipt by email.

8. Will CrowdWatch distribute my personal information?

No, all of the personal information you provide and your account activity on CrowdWatch will remain private. Please view our Privacy Policy for more information.

9. Can I invest directly from CrowdWatch?

Investments cannot be made directly from CrowdWatch; CrowdWatch allows investors to view and filter the offerings from various intermediaries. When an investor determines that an offering may be suitable for their profile, they must follow the procedures set forth by the intermediary to complete a commitment.

10. What is the difference between a capital commitment and an investment?

A capital commitment is an investor’s commitment to fund a deal; however, a commitment does not mean that money has transferred to the deal as an investor can decide to, ultimately, not fund the investment. Therefore, the amount committed is subject to up and down fluctuations until the deal closes.
