The Services are owned and operated by Funded Here Pte. Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Singapore having its registered address at: 3 Phillip Street, Royal Group Building, #09-01, S(048693) (“FundedHere”, “we”, “us”, “our”)

FundedHere retains the right to disable or cancel your User Account (as defined below), at any time and without notice, if it deems that you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms of Use.
GENERAL

If you are a natural person, you acknowledge that you have read and understood these Terms and that you are at least 18 years old. Users under 18 years of age are not eligible to use the Services without the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years old, provided such parent or legal guardian also agrees to be bound by the Terms of Use and agrees to be responsible for such use of our Services.

If you are using our Services on behalf of a legal entity (e.g. a company interested in investing in a campaign displayed on the Website or a company interested in raising funds), you warrant that you have the right to enter into agreements on behalf of such legal entity.

Users suspended from using the Services are not eligible to use the Services. FundedHere reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any campaign, contribution, or services at any time and without notice for any reason without liability.

MEMBERS’ POLICY

Some pages of this Website are open to all Users and may be browsed by any visitor. However, access to and use of password-protected and/or secure areas of the Website is restricted to authorised users who have created a user account on the Website (“User Account“) and been verified, approved and accepted as a member by FundedHere (“Member”) in accordance with the instructions set forth on the Website.

Members may, subject to FundedHere’s approval, submit campaigns of companies (each a “Company”) for which they are seeking financing from other Members, to the Website by use of the Equity Crowdfunding or Lending-based Crowdfunding Services available on the Website ("Business Campaigns").

Any submission of Business Campaigns shall be made in accordance with (i) applicable legislation and (ii) the instructions and conditions set forth on the Website from time to time. All prerequisites for Business Campaigns (e.g. number of shares or debt securities offered or interest payment offered, valuation of the Company, investment amount asked for, financial information to be provided) shall be set by the Company responsible and made according to applicable legislation. Companies shall provide Members with information in respect of the Business Campaign, as requested by FundedHere and as set forth on the Website from time to time. FundedHere reserves the right to approve or reject any offer made by Members via the FundedHere platform.

At the Business Campaign’s conclusion, FundedHere undertakes to finalize the Business Campaign in accordance with applicable legislation. FundedHere reserves the right to deny any Business Campaigns access to the Website at any time and for any reason. In addition, FundedHere reserves the right to, at any time and at its convenience, cancel, interrupt or suspend any Business Campaigns at any time, subject to prior notice. Such cancellation, suspension or interruption may be made due to Members’ or the Business Campaign's violation of applicable legislation, the Terms or Use or any terms applicable to the Website.

Each Business Campaign shall be open for the maximum period of time set forth on the Website by the fundraising Company. During the Business Campaign, a Member may express his or her interest to participate in the fundraising by pledging the amount that he or she would like to invest into a trust account. The Business Campaign ends when the maximum period of time frame set forth is reached and there will be a cooling period of 5 business days during which a Member may re-call his or her investment offer.

After the Business Campaign is concluded, the Company responsible for the Business Campaign shall provide all documentation necessary for completing the investment to the Member, and the funds raised will be transferred to the Company’s account in accordance with the terms agreed between Company and FundedHere.

The Website provided by FundedHere is a meeting platform for both entrepreneurs seeking funds for their companies and investors interested in funding companies. FundedHere does not provide any advice or take any part in the investment process. Any and all investment in a company is always made without the involvement of FundedHere, and any investment agreement is made only between the Company and a Member reporting interest to invest in such a company. Any decision to invest in a company is solely the decision of such investing Member. FundedHere shall never be liable for any Member's non-payment of any investment amount, and FundedHere shall never be liable for any fundraising Company's non-issuance of shares or debt securities or non-repayment of loan (principal and interest).

Any and all investment in a Company being subject to the Equity Crowdfunding and/or Lending-Based Crowdfunding are always made without the involvement of FundedHere, and thus made only between a Member and the Company being subject to the Business Campaign.

Members, must, accredit themselves as an accredited investor prior to making any investment via the Website. All information given, declared and submitted to FundedHere are deemed to be true, accurate and complete.

FEES

Upon completion of a successful Business Campaign on the Website, FundedHere levies a 8% success fee of the total sums raised (6% is in cash and another 2% in the form of shares at the same valuation), and the remaining is transferred to the account of the Company, less the auxiliary fees (not limited to credit card transaction fees). This fee allocation applies as well if the financing goal is exceeded. If the financing goal cannot be achieved the Company bears no costs and the funds received are refunded to the investors.

PAYMENTS

Registration as a Member of FundedHere is free. However, the Payment Provider (SmoovPay Pte Ltd) may charge fees in relation to certain aspects of the Services.

Unsuccessful Projects
