The Startup Stock Exchange is a public stock exchange, similar to the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, AIM or any other stock exchange, but with procedures and cost structure specifically designed for startups and small businesses. The Exchange allows any company from around the world to raise money from anyone, anywhere by selling equity shares. The publically traded stock can be bought or sold at any time, as the Exchange will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“The launch of StartupStockExchange.net is the first step towards solving the problem that all entrepreneurs encounter on a daily basis; how to fund their small business” said Startup Stock Exchange Co-Founder and President, Ian Haet. “In all of the companies I have started, the process of raising funds has taken the largest amount of my time and always distracted me from growing the company. I am excited to create a global solution for all investors and entrepreneurs.”
Starting today, any startup or small company may register on StartupStockExchange.net with their company information, including a short description and logo. Companies can then choose to proceed with the Exchange application process by submitting an executive summary for review.
The Startup Stock Exchange’s team of professional Startup Advisors reviews each submitted executive summary and provides the company with comments and suggestions for improvement. Once the executive summary has been approved, the company will progress to the next stage in the application process by submitting a detailed business plan.
Currently investors can register on the website to view an overview of the companies that have applied to the Exchange and follow those of interest. Once trading commences, investors can buy and sell shares in any of the companies on the Exchange. Unlike social crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter.com or Indiegogo.com, investors on the Startup Stock Exchange actually purchase equity in the company and are not merely making a donation.
The Exchange is currently finalizing the government licensing and regulatory approvals necessary for trading. The current SSX system allows companies to register and receive business advice in preparation for trading on the Exchange. The website also allows investors to register and start receiving notification and information about the individual startups and small businesses.
