I admit that I have not really looked very closely at ICO's but Start Engine has several listed in their offerings. I have bee asleep at the switch as far as equity crowdfunding goes. Wasn't really aware of it until recently.

I was on a webinar with Howard Marks the founder and CEO of Start Engine and was impressed with his vision and were he wants to go with the platform. I may shoot him a few more questions that were highlighted in your original article.It will include trading of the companies offered. They also can help with the marketing and expenses. I recall that the level of cash that you seek to raise differentiates how much diligence the company must undergo.

I worked in the Financial Services for many years and crowdfunding can fill a gap for companies seeking to raise capital. U expect that the limits were set so low because of all the past abuses in the IPO market perpetrated on investors.

Most of my investments are conservative, but even though I am retired my income exceeds my needs and seek some more "speculative investments". My interests mainly align with trying to filter some of the choices and understanding the viability of the concept / business model and the experience / quality of the leadership team.

Since you already have the SI site set up, not sure that we need to create another. I would think there would be more interest on SI especially if it stays somewhat generic and not company specific. Biotech gets a lot of interest / traffic on SI and attracts some real professionals and experts (i.e. PHD's). I am happy to help.
