The profile is searchable on TheChinaInvestors or via search engines like Google. Here are some of the things that will be publicly viewable on your profile, or elsewhere on TheChinaInvestors: the account name; any information you choose to add to your profile (like a picture, bio, your location, or your role); projects you've launched; demands you've launched; any recommendations you’ve posted on TheChinaInvestors; if you have "Followed" an Investor or Investee.

Investors or Investees are also asked to verify their identities before launching a project. Once this has been done, the Investors or Investees' Verified Name will be publicly displayed on their account profile and on any projects/demands they launch.
