Dear Companists,


The TradeMachines team is proud to accept yet another award.

Furthermore, we have launched additional national portals and have rolled out our French platform as well.

The "Seal of Excellence" is awarded once per year and is targeted at European businesses that contribute to true innovation. Talks are currently being held about whether TradeMachines will receive a EUR 1 million grant in the context of this initiative. Even though the final decision regarding financing has not yet been made, TradeMachines has nonetheless been awarded the "Seal of Excellence" as one of the most important and innovative start-ups in Europe.

We are very pleased to receive this prestigious award and cannot wait to celebrate further successes in 2016!

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
