|Sorry Glenn, somehow thought that you started the thread but see now that it was more100. I am getting the impression that the concept is gaining momentum. Start Engine has started an index and that might be something to post periodically. |
I did review some of the info on SEC.gov.: sec.gov
From working in the business so long, there are all sorts of opportunities for fraud and I guess that is what the SEC is guarding against. Also the majority of investors are non accredited and many can't afford to lose money but I guess some of them buy lottery tickets and cigarettes.
All of the job growth in this country comes from small and medium sized business (who often are suppliers to big business). I think the concept coincides with prosperity. Very few startups find VC or angels and often have a difficult time with bank funding.
Looking forward to your comments. When i find something of interest, I will post it.
