5.0 Investment in Projects and Businesses
PiA is a borderless way of bringing entrepreneurs, investors, sponsors and their backers together, on one single global platform. PiA allows entrepreneurs and sponsors to list their projects, with the aim of raising “seed/growth/equity” finance. It is the policy of PiA not to receive, hold or keep any investment monies intended for project owners. All pledges are not redeemed until the target limit is reached. As such, PiA does not hold any funds of investors.
As a result of the occasional failure of some credit cards, PiA cannot guarantee the full receipt of the targeted amount. Companies and organizations may initiate refunds at their own discretion. PiA does not issue refunds nor is it responsible for doing so(for pledges redeemed by these companies and organizations).

For deals that do not reach a full 100% of their target funding goal, a fee of 9.5% (including credit card charges) will apply on funding redeemed.
