When the company issues a security, you will receive a notification in your email. Once logged in, you can accept and acknowledge receipt of the instrument through an e-signature. When you accept the instrument, you will be asked to confirm your entity information.
Companies can set their certificate-settings in the app to issue certificates or issue securites in book entry form without a certificate.
In either case, you will receive a notice and be able to access a record of your security on your investor dashboard.
When you sign a SAFE through AngelList, you and the company will each get an email with a partially executed version of the SAFE. Once the company counter-signs the investment agreement, you will receive a fully executed version via email. Typically, this happens when the company receives funds for the investment.
Once the SAFE is fully executed, a shareholder dashboard will be created for you. You'll be able to log in to AngelList at any time to view your SAFE, contact the company, and see other relevant details.
