  • How much does a DDV cost?
    Demo Day Vehicles cost $8K + filing costs to cover incorporation, management, and excution costs associated with creating the investment entity. Stonks will not take carry on any investments. We're proud this cost is significantly cheaper for founders than hiring a law firm to handle their angel investments.
  • Do all investors need to be accredited?
    Yes - in order to comply with Rule 506, all investors in a Demo Day Vehicle will need to be accredited. Any investor sourced through your existing investor network will be able to self-select their accreditation status, while any investor that comes through a demo day will need to be proven accredited through 506(c) standards.
  • Is this an SPV or RUV?
    It's the best of both. Using a Demo Day Vehicle minimizes provides the same legal and filing cost savings as RUVs and SPVs. Unlike traditional SPVs, however, DDVs take 0% in management fees and 0% carry - ensuring the long-term value for investors is maintained.
