Are all the businesses on the platform registered with the SEC?



11:11 AM on October 10, 2022

To be able to offer investments on the Round One platform, fundraisers should have a business entity registered with the:

  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), 
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), or
  • Cooperative Development Authority of the Philippines (CDA)
  • Any government body that registers entities for the purpose of doing business.


Nonetheless, Round One doesn't have to close its doors to non-registered companies. You may undertake to formally register a company sometime in the future while you begin the initial preparations to launch a campaign. Securities offerings on this platform may also be made up of instruments that are not strictly a form of common or preferred equity.
