If you haven’t already, start by signing up for an account and verifying your email address.
Once you have an account, there’s a three step process you’ll need to complete in order to make an investment on Linqto.
Step 1: Identity Verification
This is a standard practice as part of our Know Your Customer and Anti Money Laundering (KYC/AML) compliance. You’ll be asked to scan your Drivers License or Passport and take a self-photo to verify your identity.
Step 2: Basic Information
You’ll need to complete the rest of your profile such as your citizenship and SSN/Tax ID number. This information is used for things such as tax reporting and is not shared with anyone.
Step 3: Verify Accreditation Status
Verify if you are an accredited investor in order to have access to all investment opportunities. Most countries have regulations that require you to have sufficient net worth, income, or are considered a sophisticated investor in order to invest in private companies.
In the US, an accredited investor includes anyone who:
-earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse or spousal equivalent) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, OR
-has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse or spousal equivalent (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence), OR
-holds in good standing a Series 7, 65 or 82 license.
