Investor statement

I declare that I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the restriction on promotion of non-readily realisable securities. I understand that this means:

  • I can receive promotional communications made by a person who is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority which relate to investment activity in non-readily realisable securities;

  • The investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the property invested.

I am a self-certified sophisticated investor because at least one of the following applies:

  • I am a member of a network or syndicate of business angels and have been so for at least the last six months prior to the date below;

  • I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company, including via Crowdcube, in the two years prior to the date below;

  • I am working, or have worked in the two years prior to the date below, in a professional capacity in the private equity sector, or in the provision of finance for small and medium enterprises;

  • I am currently, or have been in the two years prior to the date below, a director of a company with an annual turnover of at least £1 million.

I accept that the investments to which the promotions will relate may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other property invested. I am aware that it is open to me seek advice from someone who specialises in advising on non-readily realisable securities.

Investing in start-ups and early stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution. It should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Any investments are targeted exclusively at investors who understand the risks of investing in early stage businesses and can make their own investment decisions. Any pitches for investment are not offers to the public.
