Registration and deal review
Getting started couldn’t be simpler. Once you have signed up for a new account, you can start the process to get equity or debt financing. Our intuitive onboarding flow will guide you through what information and documentation you need to provide at each stage.
Upon receiving your proposed listing, we will begin our SEC-mandated review of the offering materials, conduct background checks, and set up the required escrow accounts.
Download our template legal documentation or have everything customized to meet the exact needs of your project (using your own attorney or ours).
Prepare all listing materials, including the LLC agreement, private placement memorandum, and Form C/Form D depending on the type of fundraising you wish to do.
Have all the financial provisions set up on your behalf with our specialist third-party escrow and payments processing providers.

Marketing and investor invitations
When your listing goes live, you can legally market your offering to prospective investors (through social media, webinars, public speaking, email campaigns, paid advertising, etc.) or invite your existing investor base, or both! You can also negotiate loans with our specialist debt providers. 506(b) offerings are not allowed to market publicly, but investors may still be invited to the platform.
You can choose to keep your listing open for a set period of time (e.g. three months) or simply close it when the minimum or target amounts are reached. If you are raising through Reg CF, your listing must remain open for a minimum of 21 days.
Throughout the raise, you can monitor investor interest and activity on your listing from your own issuer analytics dashboard and seamlessly communicate with prospective and current investors through secure built-in messaging.

Final checks and release of funds
Once you have closed your raise, Invown must ensure that the funds will be used in accordance with the terms set forth in the offering materials. Typically, this involves us reviewing additional documentation (e.g. closing documentation if the funds are to be used for a property purchase) and verifying the stated use of funds with relevant third parties (attorneys, lenders, agents, etc.).
Thereafter, we direct the release of funds to the relevant person (issuer, closing agent, attorney, etc.) from our escrow provider and provide a comprehensive data export of all investor information (for you to upload to your investor relations software, for example).
