Doorway aims to ensure that investors understand the characteristics and risks involved in investing in venture capital for startups and SMEs. A sort of financial education for those who wish to invest in this type of company.

In this regard, prior to investing, each investor is obliged to review the information made available by the portal and the investor education materials provided by Consob.

Once the investor education has been completed, in order to finalise the investment, the investor is also required to complete the MiFID questionnaire, which will acknowledge the investor's compliance with knowingly trading on the Platform.

A score that does not comply with the risk level of the offers on the portal does not preclude the investor from investing.
