Risk Considerations

Grants will be subordinate to the fund’s notes. Additionally, fund investments are often early-stage ventures with limited operating history, a high degree of risk, and a lack of capital market access.

Risk considerations of opportunities outlined in this sourcing report are provided for guidance only and may change with new information. All recoverable
grants and investments carry risk of capital loss, and this risk increases in a prolonged economic downturn caused by Covid-19. Please consult each issuer’s
detailed risk disclosures for more information on risks.


Disclosure: The above information does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to purchase any security. Any such offer or solicitation
shall only be made pursuant to a definitive confidential offering memorandum, which will qualify in its entirety the information set forth herein and which
should be read carefully prior to investment for a description of the merits and risks involved. An investment entails a high degree of risk and no assurance
can be given that the investment objective will be achieved or that investors will receive a return of their capital.
