What Is the StartEngine Owner's Bonus?
The StartEngine Owner's Bonus allows subscribers to earn a 10% bonus in shares when investing in participating campaigns that are participating in the bonus program.
In the past year, over 225 companies have participated in the Owner's Bonus program, and over 1,400 investments were made with the Owner's Bonus.
Secondly, those with the Owner's Bonus will now have priority if they are on a waitlist to invest in a company that has surpassed its maximum funding goal. They will have the first opportunity to invest should room in the offering become available in the event of failed or canceled investments. Note: these changes apply to all future launches and not to companies currently raising capital on StartEngine.
How does it work?
Once you purchase the Owner's Bonus, you will earn a bonus for any shares you purchase in participating campaigns. For example, if you buy 100 shares at $1 per share in a company, you will receive 10 bonus shares, meaning you'll hold 110 shares for $100. Eligible investments are marked with a yellow lightning bolt symbol, located beneath the "Invest Now" button on their campaign page (see image below).
How do I get the bonus?
In order to be eligible for StartEngine's Owner's Bonus, you will first need to purchase the OWNers bonus subscription ($275/year) at: www.startengine.com/owners-bonus
Once the Owner's Bonus is purchased, if you submit 2 investments within 15 days of subscribing, you will receive an additional year of the Owner's Bonus free of charge!
Was the Owner's Bonus applied to my investment?
When checking out for your investment, once you enter how much you will be investing, under the "investment amount" drop down, you will see how many bonus shares are being applied to your investment.
You can also calculate how many shares you were meant to receive by using the formula below:
$investment amount /$price per share = shares (without bonus) * 1.1 (this represents 10% bonus) = total shares including bonus
