All posts are reviewed within 24 hours before they can be activated. If your post
has violated the Terms of Agreement or failed to meet Go4Funding guidelines, it
will not be activated. The most common reasons why posts are not activated are because
personal information such as an e-mail or home address was disclosed in the posting.
Please refer to the “Status” section of your account to follow-up with any postings
made. Also, duplicate posts will not be accepted. We recommend waiting for at least
one month before posting the same post.

Yes, but we do not recommend sending any e-mails regarding funding requests directly
to us. Please post your requirements online only. Go4Funding will pursue any endeavor
if it is deemed interesting enough.
Yes. We are a trusted site and receive, on average, between 5-10 new investors who
register with us daily. In addition, there have also been many successful matches
between entrepreneurs and accredited investors since we have launched.
At Go4Funding, we take all efforts to verify a user and their intentions. However,
it is absolutely impossible to do a background check on every investor who is registered
with us. As of January 30, 2008, we have enforced a minimal check policy to all
investors who are newly registered members. We recommend entrepreneurs contact only
people whose status is shown as “Investor.” These are the users we verify. In addition,
all users are strongly recommended to execute sound common sense and personal discretion
when making any online deals. We recommend users to inform us for any suspicious
activity simply by clicking the “Report Abuse” button. Please review our Safety
Tips in our “Avoid Getting Scammed” article for more information about
online safety. One common sense point is that a legitimate investor will never ask
for any fee up front to review your application, due diligence, liability insurance
costs, or lawyer costs. Avoid dealing with any investor who asks for money from
Unfortunately, no, we do not release any private information regarding any of our
members. However, we can tell you if we verified the investor or not. If you are
interested in contacting a specific investor, we strongly suggest that you get in
touch with Go4Funding, and we will provide you with the basic guidelines in making
wise investment decisions.

Go4Funding is currently offering registration services for free. However, Go4Funding has adopted the following membership structure for other services. Go4Funding reserves the right to change the structure and fees at any time with or without sufficient notice.
Regular Membership: Free membership. Users can browse all posts and use other features like adding favorites, bulletins, etc. However, regular membership users will be restricted to contact other users.
Premium Membership: $25 for 30 days. With this membership, users will have access to an investor directory and can initiate up to five (5) contacts per day, in addition to all the features available with Regular Membership.
Regular Listing/post: Go4Funding will list your funding request or related needs for free. Users can activate and deactivate their posts at any time. Until the post is reviewed, the post will remain deactivated. If a post is edited after it is activated, it will be deactivated and reviewed again for the changes
Featured Listing/post: Go4Funding offers their members an opportunity to gain even more exposure of their listings/funding requests. For just $25.00 (US), a listing can be featured on the Go4Funding home page for seven days. Once a request is posted, it will be reviewed and activated if it meets the Go4Funding guidelines. The seven days will be calculated from the date of activation. After the seven days, the published request will be automatically returned to the pool of standard posts; however, it will always have a “Featured Listing” tag to distinguish it from regular posts. If a post is edited after it is activated, it will be reviewed again for the changes. Until the post is reviewed, the post will remain deactivated. However, the Featured Listing period will always be calculated from the first activation after the payment was made.
