SSEPConnect is not a venture fund, an investment bank, a broker dealer, investment clearing house, or an investment advisor. Rather SSEPConnect is a website in which Investor Members may be introduced to entrepreneurs and businesses for potential investment opportunities. Also, SSEPConnect may educate its members on aspects of investment and business. Each Investor Member of SSEPConnect is responsible for his or her own investment decisions. SSEPConnect does not recommend any particular entrepreneur, business, or investment opportunity for investment. All investments in entrepreneurial endeavors may involve a high degree of risk, and Investor Members should be able to bear the risk of complete financial loss. The choice and way information and knowledge gained through SSEPConnect is used is each Investor Member’s individual and personal choice. No guidance shall be given, nor shall any person affiliated with SSEPConnect (or SSEPConnect itself) be responsible for an Investor Member’s use of the information, investment decision or the results of any investment. SSEPConnect does not conduct any research or investigation to verify the information presented by individual entrepreneurs or businesses seeking investment. SSEPConnect makes no representations or warranties whatsoever regarding such entrepreneurs or businesses. Investors are expected to conduct their own due diligence and negotiate the terms of any investment they elect to make.

Important Note:

The SSEPConnect Business Member is responsible for ensuring that the Investor Member is qualified to invest in their business and for negotiating an investment that is satisfactory for their business.
