I declare that I am a self-certified sophisticated investor for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005. I understand that this means:

  • I can receive financial promotions that may not have been approved by a person who is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  • the content of such financial promotions may not conform to the rules issed by the Financial Conduct Authority;
  • by signing this statement I may lose significant rights;
  • I may have no right to complain to either of the Financial Conduct Authority or the Financial Ombudsman Scheme;
  • I may have no right to seek confirmation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme; and
  • 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 member of a network or syndicate of business angels and have been so for at least the last six months prior to the date of this statement;
  • I have made more than one investment in an unlisted company in the two years prior to the date of this statement;

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

I accept that I can lose my property and other assets from making investment decisions based on financial promotions.

I am aware that it is open to me to seek advice from an authorised person who specialises in advising on investments.

I am a client of a financial advisor (regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority) that has assessed me as suitable to receive financial promotions in relation to non-readily realisable securities.

I acknowledge that I am required to seek advice from a financial advisor in relation to each investment I make on VentureFounders and I undertake that I will seek such advice on each such occasion.

I accept that the investments promoted by VentureFounders may expose me to a significant risk of losing all of the money or other property I invest.
