2. Manager Accounts

Manager Accounts are for qualified fund managers to increase engagement and interaction between their firm and their prospects, clients and certain other relationships, increase security and oversight and scale certain workflows. The Manager Accounts aim to offer an all-in-one platform, combining features and functionality often used across multiple software licenses, subscriptions and solutions in one integrated, online environment.

2.1 Types of Accounts.

Eleven currently offers two types of Manager Accounts: the Basic Manager Account and the Pro Manager Account.

2.1.A Basic Manager Accounts

Eleven provides free accounts for qualified fund managers and deal sponsors to launch their own ‘digital store,’ which serves as their own “Virtual Marketplace.” This environment allows Basic Manager Account Users to upload information, data and documentation about their firm and the offerings they manage, and then securely share it, using a permission-based system, with their current and prospective investors, clients and other relationships.

This account can: 1) operate on a stand-alone basis solely by you or your firm; or 2) be launched, powered or extended by a fund administrator using a Fund Administrator Account to service your firm. Indeed, Fund Administrators who are servicing one (or many) of your fund offerings (including managing the subscription process), have the tools to distribute information, data and documents to investors on your behalf. Any such action by the Fund Administrator is governed and authorized solely in accordance with any Fund Administration agreement entered into between the Fund Manager and Fund Administrator, to which Eleven is not a party. Furthermore, as per Eleven’s Terms of Use, Eleven has no resulting obligations in terms of the accuracy of any User Content in a Fund Manager Account, nor the distribution to any other party through the Platform.

Every Virtual Marketplace may be accessed with a unique Eleven-hosted URL (“Manager URL”) address with a shortened and hyphenated version of the investment manager’s name, for example: https://platformeleven.io/sample-manager.

The Virtual Marketplace is a modular system that includes several main sections: Home, Offerings, Documents, My Investments and Transact. The Home page, Company Documents and some pages in Offerings may be accessed by the active relationships you have in your People (as described further below). Visibility of your Offerings can also be limited to relationships that certify that they are an “Accredited Investor” and which a Fund Manager has independently verified. Access to certain pages and document libraries for your specific offerings are permissioned based.

The Basic Manager Account is an entity-level account (i.e. as compared to an individual User Account) where multiple Users can have access to the same Basic Manager Account license.

Description of functionality

The Basic Manager Account entails a number of integrated features to provide the user themselves (i.e. the fund manager) with the framework, data and transparency to help manage their relationships with their prospective investors and clients. These features include two principal sections: Engagement and Build Your Portal.

Engagement

The Engagement area includes the following subsections:

Build your portal

Build Your Portal is an administrative, user friendly area to build and maintain information, offerings and documents available in your Virtual Marketplace and manage certain settings.

Limits

2.1.B Pro Manager Accounts

Pro Manager Accounts is a premium, subscription-based version of the Basic Manager Account with pricing available at https://platformeleven.io/pricing.

Description of functionality

The Pro Manager Account includes many premium features that allow managers to take a more active role in servicing their investor relationships. It is designed to help accelerate the fundraising process and improve conversion rates. Pro Manager Accounts include everything in a Basic Manager Account plus additional features, including:

Limits

The Pro Account has the same limits as the Basic Manager Account, plus:

2.2 Upgradable modules

2.3 Connectivity with your fund administrator

If your firm is serviced by a fund administrator through a Fund Administrator Account, certain users for the Fund Administrator Account may have write access to certain areas of your Virtual Marketplace. For instance, your fund administrator may be able to edit your Home page, add the Offerings that they service to your Virtual Marketplace, design your publicly facing Login Pages, populate and manage your My Investments area and set up some of your documentation (such as subscription and redemption documents) for electronic submissions and processing in your Transact area.

Additionally, some of the areas in your Virtual Marketplace may have their company name and logo on it, as well as names of the Users at your fund administrator, such as when indicating the name of the publisher of a document, or the name of a sender of a message.

Fund Administrators, in their separate licensing contracts with us, represent and warrant that they have authority to launch (if you don’t have one already) and maintain your Virtual Marketplace, service your investors through your Virtual Marketplace and create a Basic Manager Account license for your firm and create accounts for you and certain members on your team to the Basic Manager Account.

If your fund administrator is servicing your existing investors through the Fund Administrator Account, your investors may also gain access to digital transactions and straight-through electronic processing to this fund administrator and also be serviced by your fund administrator in your same Virtual Marketplace.

2.4 Connectivity to your own Investor Account

All Manager Accounts provide an ability to toggle from your company’s Manager Account into your own, personal Investor Account. Any information you are personally permissioned to access under your email address through your company’s Manager Account or other Accounts will be available here.

2.5 User Roles

All Users under the Basic Manager Account receive full administrative privileges for the account, which includes access to information, contacts, documents, data and activity and all functionality, such as read and write capabilities, messaging and uploading and editing content.

Only individuals that have permission to upload and distribute documents and data about your company; add, view, permission and message contacts; and see visitor activity should be added as Users.

3. Fund Administrator Accounts

Eleven provides fund administrators a central, online environment to service their clients’ investors through a Virtual Marketplace environment for each of their clients.

Description of features

The Fund Administrator Account comes with a suite of features, functionality and workflows that are available when logging into the Fund Administrator account. Some of the areas of the account include:

3.2 License Agreement

Given the enterprise nature of Fund Administrator accounts, specific legal / commercial terms and conditions of the Fund Marketplace Account shall be determined by a Software Licensing Agreement between your firm and Eleven. Only Fund Administrators having executed such an agreement have sa Fund Administrator account on Eleven.

Marketplace Accounts have a growing and evolving list of features, functionality and workflows for people or firms to build, run and grow their own online marketplace. The Marketplace Account includes, and is not limited to, a collection of the following features and workflows:

Messages

All outgoing messages are sent from Eleven and an Eleven email address. The name of the individual sending the email, however, is displayed, along with an avatar photo, if available. All outgoing messages are HTML formatted emails. Eleven’s logo appears at the top of the email for Basic Manager Accounts. Pro Manager Accounts may show the company’s logo. Additionally, Eleven includes a tracking mechanism in outgoing emails to help monitor messages that are read and communicate that information back to you. Eleven also automatically appends tokens to links you send to pages or resources in your Virtual Marketplace to facilitate your recipients access to your information and keep your information secure. Given the sensitivity of some of the information that you may write or link to in the email, recipients are encouraged not to forward emails to anyone.

Replies. All of your recipients are encouraged to reply from their own Eleven accounts to keep your messages centralized and also ensure that you receive their replies. The default reply-to address is no-reply@platformeleven.io and Eleven does not actively monitor this inbox and is not responsible for forwarding messages it receives here to you or liable in any way for not forwarding these messages. To improve the experience for your relationships, you are encouraged to provide your own Reply To address in the Company Settings area of your Manager Account.

Forwarding. Incoming emails are automatically forwarded to your email address, and you may be able to manage, in some cases, which emails are forwarded to your email address in the Settings area of your account.

Bccs. For all accounts except Investor Accounts, you may provide a bcc email address in Settings for some outgoing messages to be copied to.

Delivery. Email delivery is important and we use our commercially reasonable best efforts to achieve very high delivery rates, however, there are many aspects to email delivery that affect delivery, including some that are out of our control (like the content in the message you send). Certain emails can and may end up in your recipient’s spam filter, or may even, in some cases, be filtered out before even making it to their spam filter. It is your responsibility, and solely your responsibility, to follow up with your recipients to ensure that they have received the messages you send, and encourage them to add the platformeleven.io domain name (and eleven@platformeleven.io) as a safe sender and mark emails received not as spam.

5. Service Uptime Commitment
