OurCrowd’s platform is currently set up to accept members with a “Qualified”, “Accredited”, “Sophisticated”, or “Professional” accreditation status in their country of residence. What are the criteria, and what actions are required on your part? We have a general answer for you below. Please note: for specific questions about the qualifications of your investor status, contact OurCrowd.

Why must I be accredited or be a qualified investor?
Early stage, privately-held companies are high-risk investments, and therefore many countries require individuals to meet certain financial criteria before being allowed to participate in these investments.

What are the overall criteria of qualification/accreditation?
OurCrowd follows the rules of your country of residence – the one in which you pay taxes. These rules vary country by country, but many address the following two questions:

  1. What are the criteria to qualify as a Qualified/Accredited investor, e.g., what is the minimum level of income and/or net worth, and the knowledge and experience investors need to meet in order to participate in certain types of investments?
  2. What proof do investors have to give in order to proof they meet these criteria?

🇮🇱 Criteria of qualification for investors residing in Israel:

In Israel, to be a qualified investor, one must at least have:

  1. (liquid) Assets exceeding NIS 8 million; or
  2. Income in each of the last two years that exceeds NIS 1.2 million, or the income of your family unit exceeds NIS 1.8 million; or
  3. Inclusive value of liquid assets that exceeds NIS 5 million, and income in each of the last two years that exceeds NIS 600 thousand, or the income of your family unit must exceed NIS 900 thousand.

🇮🇱 Paperwork for investors residing in Israel:

When investor meets the above-mentioned criteria (subject to verification by OurCrowd), and the investor declares in writing that it wishes to be registered as a qualified investor, then OurCrowd will conduct an assessment of the expertise, experience and knowledge of the investor that gives reasonable assurance that the investor has the knowledge to understand the risks associated with the investments. OurCrowd will share the classification of the status of the investor, and investor shares in writing a declaration confirming the satisfaction of being registered as a “Qualified Investor”.
