What fees does Republic charge?
Investing on Republic is free for Investors.*
Companies pay only if they successfully reach their funding goal: 6% of the total funds raised in cash, and 2% as a Crowd Safe.
Companies raising on Republic may also use the proceeds of their successful
financing to pay for the escrow agent and other transaction-related fees. Related: how much does it cost to launch a campaign?
Example using a Crowd Safe: Equity Startup, Inc. raises $100,000 at $10M valuation and hits its funding goal, effectively selling an equivalent of 1% of its equity. Republic takes $6,000 and Crowd Safe with a $2,000 face value (0.02% in an equity equivalent).
Example using a Token DPA: Blockchain Startup, Inc. raises $100,000
and hits its funding goal, effectively selling $100,000 plus interest in tokens. Republic takes $6,000 and Token DPA with a $2,000 face value (later equivalent for cash or tokens).
Example using a Revenue Share: Revenue Startup, Inc. raises $100,000 and hits its funding goal, effectively selling $100,000 in debt with a revenue right. Republic takes $6,000 and a revenue right with a $2,000 face value (which will entitle Republic to payments as if Republic had put $2,000 into the offering).
