Frequently Asked Questions

Investors

How do you work with your investors?

Fuse Funding is a closed end 506(b) fund. Once we form a fund to which accredited investors can commit, we get to work to place those funds in the market. Our process is clear, spelled out, and we ensure proper communication and reporting to our investors is in place.

Who can invest with Fuse Funding?

Only individuals and companies considered accredited investors may invest with Fuse Funding. You can read more here about accredited investors.

Why do you have a cooling off period?

New digital ventures have made investing easier than ever before. This is especially true for experienced and sophisticated investors, who can now diversify their portfolios more efficiently than ever. The Securities and Exchange Commission has indicated that the placement of private offering materials on a website without sufficient procedures to limit access to accredited investors is inconsistent with the prohibition against general solicitation and general advertising found in Rule 502(c) of Regulation D; that the posting of private offering materials in a password-protected webpage of the issuer accessible only to accredited investors, however, will not involve any general solicitation or general advertising if such access is granted only 30 days or more after the issuer has received a completed (and qualifying) accredited investor questionnaire from the investor. Consequently, Fuse Funding can only send you information about a private offering on the date that is 30 days or more after it first receives from you a completed accredited investor questionnaire and makes a determination that you do qualify. Fuse Funding strives to implement best practices to create a more trustworthy and safe investing experience.

SEC Rules and the Cooling Off Period

The Securities Act of 1933 requires that every offer and sale of a security (passive ownership interest in a company) be registered with the SEC unless an exemption from such requirement is available. At the present time, most issuers rely on the safe harbors from registration provided by Rule 506. Rule 506(b) includes a requirement that the issuer not engage in general solicitation and general advertising in connection with the offer and sale of its securities. Rule 506(c) does permit issuers to engage in general solicitation and general advertising in connection with their offers and sales, so long as they verify that the investors are in fact accredited investors. Both options require, among other things, that the issuer file a “Form D” with the SEC within 15 days after the first sale of securities in the offering. Form D includes the names and addresses of the issuer’s promoters, executive officers and directors, description of use of proceeds, and other details about the offering.

Fuse Funding, LLC operates under 506(b) and as a consequence chooses to first establish a substantial, pre-existing relationship with an investors by having that investor first provide a completed accredited investor questionnaire and then waiting for the 30-day cooling off period to expire. After all of that has transpired (and if the investor does in fact qualify), then at that time Fuse Funding will provide that accredited investor with access to its password-protected webpage that contains information about Fuse Funding’ private offerings.

Rule 501 of Regulation D defines ‘Accredited Investor’ to include a natural person (1) with a net worth or joint net worth with the person’s spouse exceeding $1 million, excluding the value of the primary residence, or (2) having an annual income of $200,000 in each of the two most recent years, or joint income with his or her spouse exceeding $300,000 for both of those years and a reasonable expectation of the same income in the current year.

Legal Disclaimer

No information provided on this website shall constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to make an investment in any securities or ownership interests in Fuse Funding I, LLC (the “Fund”). This website does not constitute an offer to sell or buy any securities or ownership interests of the Fund (“Interests”). There shall be no offer or sale of the Fund’s Interests without:

  1. A prospective investor first completing the Fund’s questionnaire, pursuant to which that prospective investor will attest that he or she is an Accredited Investor, as defined by Rule 501 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”); and
  2. After it receives a completed Accredited Investor Questionnaire from a prospective investor, the Fund completing its investigation to determine that the prospective investor does satisfy the Accredited Investor standard and is therefore qualified to invest in the Fund.

Only once both of the foregoing conditions precedent have been satisfied, to the Fund’s satisfaction, will the Fund then proceed to deliver a set of confidential offering materials (the “Offering Materials”) to that qualifying prospective investor.

All information contained on this website (including this disclaimer language) is qualified in its entirety by and subject to the information contained in the Offering Materials. As explained in detail in the Offering Materials, Interests in the Fund are not registered (nor is there any present intention to have them registered) under the 1933 Act, or the securities laws of any states, and will only be offered and sold in reliance on exemptions from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act and requisite state laws. The Interests in the Fund, once acquired, may not be transferred or resold except as permitted by the 1933 Act and requisite state laws pursuant to registration or an exemption therefrom. Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) nor any state securities regulatory authority has expressed any approval or disapproval of the Interests in the Fund, nor have any of the foregoing authorities passed upon or endorsed the merits, accuracy or adequacy of the Offering Materials. Any representation to the contrary is unlawful.

Securities offered through the Fund are only suitable for Accredited Investors, who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risk associated with private investments. Investing in private placements requires high-risk tolerance, low-liquidity concerns and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. Investors must carefully consider their investment objectives along with the risks, charges, expenses and other factors of any investment product prior to investing.

No communication, through this website or in any other medium, should be construed as a recommendation for any security offering. This website provides general and preliminary information about the Fund and is intended for initial reference purposes only. It is not a summary or compilation of all applicable information and is not complete. It is subject in its entirety to the Offering Materials, which will only be provided to qualifying Accredited Investors.

Neither the Fund nor any of its affiliates is a registered investment adviser or registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940.

Prospective investors should not construe the contents of this website as legal, tax, investment or other advice. Each prospective investor should make his or her own inquiries and consult his or her own advisors as to the appropriateness and desirability of an investment in the Fund and as to legal, tax and related matters concerning an investment in the Fund. All prospective investors are strongly advised to consult with their own tax, legal and financial advisors.
