New marketing agreement strives to bring early stage, high technology equity investment deals to all Americans in the United States
For decades the The MIT Enterprise Forum, one of the preeminent organization of entrepreneurs in the global innovation economy, has been nurturing emerging technology startups into thriving businesses providing investors with prime investment opportunities.
And for the past 80 years, 99% of Americans have been forbidden from investing in early stage, privately held companies, on the premise that such investments should be limited to the super wealthy.
But today things are changing. Securities-based Crowdfunding, which is expected to begin in late 2014 or early 2015, will open up early stage investing to all Americans, giving them access to investment opportunities previously monopolized traditional venture capital and high net-worth investors.
PeoplesVC, an equity-based Crowdfunding Company headquartered in Peterborough, New Hampshire, is democratizing Venture Capital and early stage investing, by creating a platform that will allow all Americans to access prized deals.
Through a sponsorship with the MIT Enterprise Forum, PeoplesVC seeks to identify promising emerging high technology startups and help these companies raise capital from the general public.
“I am excited about the prospect of opening up investment opportunities in promising high technology companies to all Americans,” commented Akhil Garland, CEO of PeoplesVC, Inc, “a new wave of capital formation is coming, and it is thrilling to help create new, meaningful jobs in our country,” Garland added.
“I am delighted to welcome PeoplesVC as our newest partner in serving the needs of entrepreneurs and early stage privately held companies,” commented Lesa Lassard Pearson, Executive Director, MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge, “PeoplesVC will bring a new perspective to the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge and I look forward to seeing how that perspective plays out in our community,” Pearson added.
Peoples Venture Capital (Peoples VC) was founded to create American jobs by harnessing the power of the Internet and social networking and serving as a catalyst for rapid change, jobs growth, and innovation.
