Equity Crowdfunding (exempted Securities)

Under crowdfunding regulations Dexitrade can help raise up to 10m Pesos (approx $200,000), by selling a percentage of a company to the public via the Dexitrade crowdfunding portal.

Existing or newly formed companies can create a request to raise funding, adding a 2 to 5 minute video elevator pitch, a business plan in text or PDF format, and major team members, along with the amount you wish to raise and the percentage of the company you want to sell.

Once approved, the campaign to raise funds is viewable for 30 days, after which the campaign is open for a further 60 days for the general public to buy shares. Once the target has been met, the campaign is closed and the funders receive their money. If the campaign target is not met after 60 days, all pledged funds are immediately returned. Investors also have up to 48 hours before the campaign end date to cancel their pledges.
