Crowdnetic Launches Industry's First Private Offerings Content Suite on
Alliance brings aggregated data and analytics on private companies raising
capital on AngelList, Crowdfunder, EarlyShares, MicroVentures, WeFunder, and
other leading intermediaries to millions of retail investors.
NEW YORK -- October 14, 2013
Crowdnetic, the leading provider of market data solutions for the global
crowdfinance industry, announced today that its premier private offerings
content suite of companies publicly raising capital online will now be
featured on Dow Jones’ leading finance portal, MarketWatch. MarketWatch is a
leading innovator in business news, personal finance information, real-time
commentary and investment tools and data.
Commenting on the alliance, Luan Cox, Crowdnetic’s CEO, said, “This marks the
most transformative moment in financial services since online stock quotes
first began democratizing investment information in the 1990s. We are honored
to be working with MarketWatch in bringing this next-generation investment
data to their over 6 million unique visitors per month.”
The new "Private Offerings" section of MarketWatch will include aggregated
offering and pricing information on private issuers raising capital via
Regulation D 506(c) and other forms of securities-based crowdfunding presently
permissible within the amended regulatory framework under the JOBS Act. For
the first time in history, through MartketWatch, retail investors will have
the ability to track and monitor a comprehensive listing of private offerings
from some of the world’s leading platforms including AngelList, MicroVentures,
EarlyShares, CrowdClear, WeFunder, hyperfund and Crowdfunder.
“As the venture capital industry continues to evolve and PIPRs (“Private
Issuers Publicly Raising”) become a mainstream asset class, it was essential
that we create this dashboard to give investors, reporters, officials and the
general public greater visibility and insight into the private company
marketplace,” Cox concluded.
“MarketWatch has a long history of providing innovative financial tools that
help investors stay on top of the latest market trends. In today’s climate, as
more and more investment dollars are being allocated to alternative asset
classes, we believe that Crowdnetic’s private company content suite will only
enhance our users’ ability to make good decisions,” said Ian Rosen, General
Manager of MarketWatch.
