As a funding portal, we:

During your raise

  • File your raise with the SEC to ensure compliance

  • Provide guidance and technical support for your raise

We do not solicit investors on your behalf, and we determine marketing support based on objective criteria such as the amount you've raised, time remaining on the platform, etc.

After your raise

Mainvest facilitates repayments and communications with your investors. Each quarter, you'll upload a revenue report, and our platform calculates repayments to investors. We then process those repayments directly to investors. Our platform also has multiple tools for you to use to get in touch with investors and provide regular updates. We also keep in touch to provide overall support to your business on a case-by-case basis.

We do not provide legal nor tax advice.
