MOST FREQUENT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

General

  • WHAT IS BAMBUCORN?

    Bambucorn is an equity crowd funding platform that enables startups and SME's raise equity financing by issuing tokens which represent digital shares. Bambucorn is regulated by the DFSA and has an in-principle approval for an Innovation Testing License (“ITL”). Bambucorn is currently restricted under ITL to testing its platform and due to the limited nature of the ITL, normal client protections may not apply and clients may have limited rights if they suffer a loss as a result of taking part in testing.

  • I AM INTERESTED IN BECOMING AN EXPERT, HOW DO I BECOME ONE?

    You can apply to Bambucorn to become an expert. For now, please do your pre-sign up here.

  • HOW LONG IS AN EXPERT SUPPOSED TO WORK ON THIS?

    Research has indicated that investments, where more than twenty (20) hours are spent on due diligence have a higher chance of succeeding. Based on this, we expect experts to spend at least twenty hours per deal on due diligence (including answering investors’ questions). An expert may be providing assistance to two or more campaigns simultaneously.

  • ANY PARTICULAR FIELD YOU REQUIRE EXPERTS IN?

    Since Bambucorn is a sector agnostic crowdfunding platform, we are looking for experts in all fields. Please do your pre-signup here.

  • WILL AN EXPERTS’ OPINION BE CONSTRUED AS ADVICE BY POTENTIAL INVESTORS?

    Since Bambucorn is not licensed to provide investment advice, any opinions expressed by the expert will not be construed as investment advice by potential investors. Please note that experts on the platform have been dissuaded from expressing any personal opinions, however they are free to express factual statements (i.e. statements that can be attributed to a source).

  • HOW WILL THE EXPERT BE REMUNERATED?

    An expert will be paid a fixed fee regardless of the result of the offering. In this way, it will be ensured that experts’ opinion is independent and is not influenced in any way by the result of the offering.

  • WHY IS AN 'EXPERT' NEEDED IN THE CROWDFUNDING SPACE?

    Many a times, investors are unable to fully comprehend the product/service offering of issuers. By tapping into the knowledge and experience of Experts, investors are able to make their own investment decisions better.

  • WHAT MEASURES HAS BAMBUCORN PUT IN PLACE FOR THE SECURITY OF IT SYSTEMS AND DATA PROTECTION?

    Please refer to the relevant sections of the Privacy and Security Policy.

  • CAN A FOUNDER ANSWER THE INVESTORS’ QUESTIONS?

    Absolutely, they can! However, we want to provide investors on our platform with an unabiased view from an individual who has no skin in the game (i.e. no conflict of interest).
