On the Groundbreaker Platform, investors will be able to express interest and enter a position in your deal through the Offering presented on the Investor Portal. Groundbreaker gives you the ability to market your deal with high-resolution photos, descriptive details, and additional documents that will increase its appeal to potential investors. An Offering is essentially a marketing document for an investment deal - the actual legal holding entity is the Investment Entity.
In addition to retaining all the marketing information, all offers and progress toward funding goals are maintained with the Offering and presented when you view the Offering.
When you select Offerings from the main menu, you can add a new offering when you click Create offering at the top right of the page. This article describes the workflow.
Your existing offerings are listed with overview information giving you the status of each at a glance.
When you click on an existing offering, the offering detail page gives you important information about the offering.
Offering Detail Page
This is the detail page presented when you click on the Offering.
The current stage of your offering is shown at the top of the page next to the name of the offering. It is also shown on the right-hand side of the page where you can toggle between Active and Draft:
Your offering can be in one of three different statuses.
Draft - you are still gathering and preparing information before presenting to potential investors
Active - the offering is presented on the investor portal and actively taking reservations or commitments
Closed - fundraising has completed and you are no longer accepting offers
A summary of the number of prospects and the amounts they have reserved or committed are shown in the fundraising status table along with a fundraising bar to show the progress toward your equity goal.
In addition to the offering status, this section of the page identifies some basic attributes associated with the Offering.
This is where you see:
The offering stage - either Reservation or Commitment
The equity goal
The expected hold time
Minimum and maximum investment amounts, if specified
The investment entity managing the offering
The Non-disclosure agreement (NDA) status
This is a calendar showing the number of views this offering has received in the past year.
