Only invest an amount that you would feel comfortable losing.
Investing in private companies is highly risky. You should not invest any funds unless you can afford to lose your entire investment. In making an investment decision, you must rely on your own examination of the issuer and the terms of the offering, including the merits and risks involved to decide how much you feel comfortable investing.
Since these types of investments can be risky, there are a few restrictions on how much you can invest. Anyone can invest at least $2,200. The SEC limits how much investors may invest in private companies in a given year based on their income and net worth. Your limits will be estimated automatically during the investment process.
