How do I verify my funds?

A guide to uploading financial documents that verify your available acquisition funds

Before you can verify your funds, you must first verify your identity. It only takes a few minutes and helps you build trust with sellers. How to verify your identity

Impress sellers by verifying you have the funds to acquire a startup. 

No one wants to spend time on an acquisition if there's no chance of it closing. Prove your available funds and give sellers another reason to choose you over other buyers. 

  1. Upload qualifying financial documents. 
  2. We'll calculate your verified funds amount based on the liquidity of assets.
  3. You get the Verified funds badge showing sellers you're serious.

Verification can take up to 72 business hours. You also need to re-verify periodically for your amount to stay valid, and we'll remind you when it's time to re-verify.
