Member’s Code of Conduct Policy
Membership in the Capital Angel Network is a privilege that is extended on a periodic basis to individual accredited investors (Members), and is subject to periodic renewal, non-renewal, revocation, termination or suspension by the Board of Directors, which shall be elected from time to time by the Members of the Capital Angel Network.
The purpose of Membership is to provide Members exposure to investment opportunities in early stage companies located, or doing business, in the region, including specific investment opportunities presented by other Members, and to provide forums for education and active interchange of information and ideas, regarding the formation, development and financial structuring of early stage companies. The prospective investment opportunities are neither offered by nor endorsed by the Capital Angel Network.
Members are expected to make a contribution to the operation of the Capital Angel Network. This may include actively participating in due diligence, leading an investment opportunity, identifying investment opportunities, and serving on the board of directors or board of advisors of portfolio companies.
Decisions regarding approval or denial of Membership to any applicant shall be governed by the Board of Directors. All decisions are final and as such not subject to appeal.
Membership does not create any rights for a Member to participate in any particular investment opportunity that may be the subject of a presentation or other educational meeting. The Capital Angel Network has no authority or responsibility to accept or reject an investment by any Member in such an opportunity. The issuer, in its sole discretion, may accept or reject any potential investor, based on the issuer’s sole discretion and judgment as to which investors best meet its needs, and subject to other issuer’s provisions or restrictions, such as minimum investment requirements and maximum investment limits.
Members are responsible for making individual and independent investment decisions, both as to suitability of an investment and as to amount, if any, invested based on their own individual evaluation of the merits of the proposed investment. Each Member agrees that the Capital Angel Network shall have no responsibility for the accuracy, completeness or merits of the information presented or the success or failure of any investment decision made by any Member.
Neither the Capital Angel Network nor any Member shall be responsible for any other Member’s, due diligence, lack thereof, or reliance thereon. No Member is obligated in any way to share any due diligence with any other Member.
In no way shall the Capital Angel Network, however organized, be deemed to create a joint venture or partnership among its Members, or to create between any fiduciary duty or any other kind of obligations among or between any Members or the Capital Angel Network. Neither the Capital Angel Network nor any Member shall have any responsibility or liability for the decision of any other Member or any issuer with respect to individual participation in any investment opportunity.
By execution hereof, each Member expressly waives any right to sue or bring any action of any sort on the basis of any Capital Angel Network related educational activity, information sharing or investment presentation, or otherwise, against any one or more of the Capital Angel Network, its Board, any Member or any former Member.
The Board can suspend, revoke or terminate the Membership of any Member who, in the sole judgment of the Board:
Decisions regarding the revocation, termination, suspension or non-renewal of Membership by the Board are final and not subject to any appeal. The sole recourse any Member has over any disagreement with a Board decision, motion or action, regardless of its scope or nature, is to withdraw from Membership in the Capital Angel Network.
