Accreditation status must be verified via documentation of credible third parties in a position to provide accurate verification. Investors in this offering should have experience in making early stage investments.
Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator, Inc. develops early stage innovations and startups. By nature the risk is very high for these type of investments. Any investor should be fully prepared without reserve to lose all their investment. Our high focus on developing implantable devices and biologics for treating heart failure add exceptionally higher levels of risk as the products require multiple stages of clinical trials costing many millions of dollars and require high intellectual property protection to succeed commercially. The patent landscape in these areas of participation are wrought with potential for litigation. A high number of clinical trials in the heart failure space fail to prove greater safety and efficacy compared to currently available choices. A high number of early seed stage innovations fail to ever make it to market and even a smaller number become commercial successes. This type of investment is NOT appropriate for nest egg savings.
