    Why invest in startups?

    Regulation CF allows investors to invest in startups and early-growth companies. This is different from helping a company raise money on Kickstarter; with Regulation CF Offerings, you aren’t buying products or merchandise - you are buying a piece of a company and helping it grow.

    How much can I invest?

    Accredited investors can invest as much as they want. But if you are NOT an accredited investor, your investment limit depends on either your annual income or net worth, whichever is greater. If the number is less than $124,000, you can only invest 5% of it. If both are greater than $124,000 then your investment limit is 10%.

    How do I calculate my net worth?

    To calculate your net worth, just add up all of your assets and subtract all of your liabilities (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). The resulting sum is your net worth.

    What are the tax implications of an equity crowdfunding investment?

    We cannot give tax advice, and we encourage you to talk with your accountant or tax advisor before making an investment.

    Who can invest in a Regulation CF Offering?

    Individuals over 18 years of age can invest.

    What do I need to know about early-stage investing? Are these investments risky?

    There will always be some risk involved when investing in a startup or small business. And the earlier you get in the more risk that is usually present. If a young company goes out of business, your ownership interest could lose all value. You may have limited voting power to direct the company due to dilution over time. You may also have to wait about five to seven years (if ever) for an exit via acquisition, IPO, etc. Because early-stage companies are still in the process of perfecting their products, services, and business model, nothing is guaranteed. That’s why startups should only be part of a more balanced, overall investment portfolio.

    When will I get my investment back?

    The Common Stock (the "Shares") of Global Air Cylinder Wheels (the "Company") are not publicly-traded. As a result, the shares cannot be easily traded or sold. As an investor in a private company, you typically look to receive a return on your investment under the following scenarios: The Company gets acquired by another company. The Company goes public (makes an initial public offering). In those instances, you receive your pro-rata share of the distributions that occur, in the case of acquisition, or you can sell your shares on an exchange. These are both considered long-term exits, taking approximately 5-10 years (and often longer) to see the possibility for an exit. It can sometimes take years to build companies. Sometimes there will not be any return, as a result of business failure.

    Can I sell my shares?

    Shares sold via Regulation Crowdfunding offerings have a one-year lockup period before those shares can be sold under certain conditions.

    Exceptions to limitations on selling shares during the one-year lockup period:

    In the event of death, divorce, or similar circumstances, shares can be transferred to:

    1. The company that issued the securities
    2. An accredited investor
    3. A family member (child, stepchild, grandchild, parent, stepparent, grandparent, spouse or equivalent, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law, including adoptive relationships)
    What happens if a company does not reach their funding target?

    If a company does not reach their minimum funding target, all funds will be returned to the investors after the close of the offering.

     How can I learn more about a company's offering?

    All available disclosure information can be found on the offering pages for our Regulation Crowdfunding offering.

    What if I change my mind about investing?

    You can cancel your investment at any time, for any reason, until 48 hours prior to a closing occurring. If you’ve already funded your investment and your funds are in escrow, your funds will be promptly refunded to you upon cancellation. To submit a request to cancel your investment please email:

    How do I keep up with how the company is doing?

    At a minimum, the company will be filing with the SEC and posting on it’s website an annual report, along with certified financial statements. Those should be available 120 days after the fiscal year end. If the company meets a reporting exception, or eventually has to file more reported information to the SEC, the reporting described above may end. If these reports end, you may not continually have current financial information about the company.

    What relationship does the company have with DealMaker Securities?

    Once an offering ends, the company may continue its relationship with DealMaker Securities for additional offerings in the future. DealMaker Securities’ affiliates may also provide ongoing services to the company. There is no guarantee any services will continue after the offering ends.

    Why Should I Invest?

    At the core of this investment appeal is the company's innovative technology – the Air Suspension Wheel (ASW). This revolutionary solution has the potential to disrupt the tire industry, offering a safer, more durable, and eco-friendly alternative to traditional rubber tires. Investors keen on environmental sustainability will find this particularly enticing, as the ASW addresses the pressing problem of tire pollution and the release of microplastics. This commitment to reducing environmental harm aligns with the interests of those passionate about creating a cleaner and more sustainable planet.

    Moreover, the market potential for the ASW is vast, spanning across various industries, from mining and automotive to general transportation. This opens the door to significant growth opportunities for investors. The ASW's safety enhancements, durability, and energy efficiency further make it a valuable asset for industries where safety and reliability are paramount. With its ability to reduce maintenance costs and offer potential cost savings, the ASW appeals to investors interested in optimizing operational expenses.

    The ASW's recyclability aligns with circular economy principles, making it a sustainable and eco-conscious solution. Investors who value patented technology may appreciate the company's robust portfolio, which includes 43 granted patents and over 75 pending patents, representing a formidable barrier to potential competitors. The technology's adaptability to various vehicle types adds to its market reach and application potential.

    Notably, the company has received recognition from reputable sources such as Time, Interesting Engineering, Sustainability Magazine, Mining Digital, International Mining, Tire Review, Technology Magazine, Tech Times, Tyre News, further underscoring its growth potential.

    How Will GACW Make Money?

    There is a huge incentive for mining companies to switch to the ASW. It could save them costs and make their operations safer, and could actually turn into a capital asset. When you consider how much money is spent on rubber tires in the mining industry - $75,000 per tire - and they only last 6 to 9 months, switching to a solution that, with proper maintenance, could last the lifetime of the vehicle is a no brainer. Plus there are many more applications where this is going to have a similar impact.

    How Do I Know People Will Buy This Solution?

    They’ve already been testing this with Tier 1 mining companies and continue to attract more interest. The economics, safety, performance, and sustainability of the ASW makes this any easy decision.

    Are There More Opportunities Ahead?

    They’ve already been testing this with Tier 1 mining companies and continue to attract more interest. The economics, safety, performance, and sustainability of the ASW makes this any easy decision.

    Are There More Opportunities Ahead?

    They are still building their MVP, so this is a true early stage opportunity. They have a wide open opportunity in the mining industry, plus the potential to expand across all tire vertices, including everything from bicycle tires to heavy truck tires.

    Why Didn't A Bigger Company Do This Already?

    Bigger companies a.k.a. tire OEMs want to sell more rubber. They pretend to be environmentally aware, however, at the end of the day, they are in the business of selling (more) rubber.

    How do I get a return on my investment?

    A - Investing in startups is risky and there is no guarantee you will get a return on your investment. However, an exit opens up the opportunity where you could convert your shares into cash or a more liquid asset. Exits include going public, getting acquired by a larger company, or our company buying back shares. If the value of our company grows, then you have a higher potential of making a profit on your investment during one of these exits.

    B- You are investing in a pre-revenue company. Success will be measured in progress towards revenue. Future liquidation events could include acquisition or an IPO.

    How long are you expecting the company to operate before needing another round?

    If we are able to raise the full amount it is anticipated that this will allow us to get our product to market. We would expect to need additional capital at that time to market and sell the product.

    What is the exit plan for the company?

    The plan is to build a successful, valuable company. Exit opportunities like an acquisition or IPO could follow in due course

    When will I receive my shares?

    Shares will be rewarded after the investment funds clear. This typically takes around 3 weeks after investment.

    Are there higher fees if you invest via credit card vs. ACH?

    No, costs are the same, regardless of how you invest

    Will you be paying out dividends to investors?

    Not at this stage, this may change in the future

    Equity crowdfunding investments in private placements, and start-up investments in particular, are speculative and involve a high degree of risk and those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest in start-ups. Companies seeking startup investment through equity crowdfunding tend to be in earlier stages of development and their business model, products and services may not yet be fully developed, operational or tested in the public marketplace. There is no guarantee that the stated valuation and other terms are accurate or in agreement with the market or industry valuations. Further, investors may receive illiquid and/or restricted stock that may be subject to holding period requirements and/or liquidity concerns.

    Government-required identity & anti-fraud checks secure all transactions. Why Do We Need This?


    Since this is a financial transaction we are required by regulators like the SEC & US Department of Treasury to perform AML (Anti Money Laundering) & KYC (Know Your Customer) verification in order to avoid money laundering, fraud, and identity theft. 


    Our broker-dealer, DealMaker Securities, LLC uses a Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), for example Social Security Number (SSN), Employment Identification Number (EIN), Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) to fulfill its responsibilities with its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Program as required by the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and its implementing regulations and FINRA Rule 3310 (AML Compliance Program) by requesting, reviewing, and verifying data and documentation provided during securities transactions, prior to acceptance. 


    Here’s why they are required for startup investments:



    Preventing Illegal Activities: Money laundering involves the concealment or disguise of money derived from criminal origins by processing it through a single or series of transactions to make it appear as if it comes from a legal, legitimate source or constitute legitimate assets. Having a verification process, whereby investors are reviewed, checked against governmental databases, and all investment funds are evaluated, startups can feel confident they are protecting themselves from civil and criminal penalties and preventing terrorist financing, drug trafficking, tax evasion, corruption, fraud, and other financial crimes.



    Identity Verification/Data: KYC processes help collect essential pieces of data and verify the identity and authority of the investors, ensuring that they are indeed who they claim to be and are authorized to process the transaction they seek to make. This protects against identity theft and fraud.



    Regulatory Compliance: Compliance with AML and KYC requirements is mandatory in many jurisdictions. Failure to comply can lead to severe civil penalties, including heavy fines, and even criminal penalties.
