When private companies raise capital in the US, they will typically want to ensure that all of their prospective investors are “accredited investors” under federal securities laws (for an explanation of why that is, see this article). Companies will thus often send their prospective investors a questionnaire to confirm that they fulfill one or more of the accredited investor criteria.
As a resource to startups seeking to raise capital, we at Cooley GO have made available a form of accredited investor questionnaire.
