The POMM Security Cases Will Target Billions of iPhone and Android Smartphone Customers Who Can Receive Multistep Biometric Authentication, Encrypted Storage and a Secure Set of Applications

By Robert Hoskins

New York, NY – Corporate executives, celebrities, movie stars, government officials or cell phone owners have one thing in common, they are sitting ducks for hackers that are set up to steal sensitive texts, emails, photos, videos and files that are stored on cell phones or backed up on Internet cloud storage services using malware programs such as HummingBad, Stagefright, WireLurker or Xsser.

“In addition to malware, it doesn’t take much computer hardware to capture phone numbers out of thin air and use cracking software to discover people’s four-digit security code,” said David Freidenberg, POMM’s CEO. “Thus, once hackers have your phone number they can use security holes in the SS7 telecom switching networks to listen in and record your phone conversations and take pictures with your smartphone’s camera while you’re inside your home or office when you are completely unaware that you are being watched.”

The good news is that there is a solution called POMM™ — Privacy on My Mind. The high-tech Israeli mobile security firm, POMM, Inc., has been working diligently on providing a cost-effective smartphone security case for the past six years. The company has been awarded multiple worldwide patents for its unique technology and is now raising money through an equity crowdfunding campaign.

The money raised is targeted for beginning mass production of its biometric security smartphone case technology and initiating a worldwide marketing campaign to sign up cell phone franchise stores, big box retail locations, resellers, distributors and hire manufacturer’s sales reps on an international basis.

POMM intends to pursue an initial public offering (IPO) in the future and, therefore, non-accredited and accredited investors have the opportunity to get in now and participate in this “Round A” equity raise. This press release is not an offering circular and the $498.80 units (12 shares) can only be purchased after reviewing the entire Title IV, Reg. A+ offering circular and full disclosure information located on the equity crowdfunding profile at: www.pommoffering.com

In 2015, the U.S. mobile accessories market reached $81.5 billion. Of the total amount, an amazing 40% or $32.6 billion was spent on smartphone protective cases followed closely by extended memory and battery technology add-on accessories.

To meet this demand, POMM’s engineering team designed its protective smartphone case to provide a huge amount of encrypted data storage, 50% more battery life and multi-step biometric security authentication system, which will only unlock a smartphone for the true owner. POMM technology also arrives with a set of secured applications, such as safe passwords, secured contacts, messaging and media library and more.

POMM™ is a must-have add-on for Android Smartphone and Apple iPhone owners that want biometric authentication; a highly secured, personal data storage cloud; and hacker-proof cell phone applications. The POMM also comes with a slim built-in lithium battery that provides up to 50% more battery time.

POMM Spec Sheet: http://privatepomm.com/he/spec-sheet.pdf

Why Do Cell Phones Need Biometric Authentication?
This is an easy question to answer for government officials such as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump or celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Kate Upton, Kaley Cuoco, and others, whose cellphone iCloud accounts were hacked leading to the discovery of susceptible software apps in over 1 billion Android and iPhones using HummingBad, Xsser or WireLurker.

Why are Smartphones Apps Susceptible to Hacking?
A large number of popular cell phones apps do not have critical user authentication protections. For example, “HTTP Request Hijacking” (HRH) affects at least 10,000 known apps on Apple’s App Store. And this is just one of a hundred ways to hack into what most people think are secure smartphones and Internet backup storage clouds.

What is Biometric Security?
Biometric security allows smartphones to authenticate a user’s identity using fingerprint, iris, face and palm scans as well as certain types of pulse, blood oxidation, body temperature and voice recognition to verify that cell phone users are valid, alive, well and not suffering from coercion.

What is a Private, Secured, Local Storage Cloud?
POMM (Privacy on My Mind™) is a mini-computer encased inside a durable, impact resistant cell phone case that performs biometric authentication as well as implements advanced encryption algorithms. Data is stored in a local, private, and very secure cloud versus Internet-based clouds that are favorite targets of ID theft, hacker attacks and other cyberspace criminal abuse.

Who Needs a POMM?
Hundreds of millions of computer-age, modern economy cell phone users worldwide who want to feel secure in accessing, managing, and updating their digital data files.

When Will the POMM Be Available?
POMM is ready to go to market now and is currently raising $10 million by selling shares via a Title IV, Reg. A+ Equity Crowdfunding Campaign to begin mass production and achieve market penetration. Investors that purchase shares can also receive one of POMM biometric security cases. To learn more, please visit http://pommoffering.com.

MicroVentures Opens “500 Startups Fund III” Equity Investment Opportunity to Fund 4-Month Startup Accelerator Programs

27 Feb

Equity Crowdfunding Site Now Seeking Investors to Invest up to $10,000 in Multiple e-commerce, cloud services, mobile, education, digital health, payments and Internet startup companies

By Robert Hoskins

Austin, Texas – MicroVentures, an online equity crowdfunding portal based in Mountain View, California and offices in Austin, Mexico City and San Francisco, announced the launch of a new equity crowdfunding investment fund called “500 Startups Fund III,” which is seeking to sign up accredited equity investors to invest a minimum of $10,000 or more in early stage capital investments. The 500 Startups Fund III makes investments across multiple industry verticals, including e-commerce, cloud services, mobile, education, digital health, payments and Internet among others.

MicroVentures Equity Investment Network of 25,000 Global Investors to Date Have Invested $125 Million in Approximately 900 Startup Companies

Founded by Bill Clark in 2009, MicroVentures recruited Tim Sullivan, Garrett Paul and Jaclyn Strife from SharesPost in 2012, which is renowned for taking Facebook through its Initial Public Offering (IPO) and went on to found Oceanic Partners. The firm runs something commonly referred to an investment syndicate, where accredited investors who are new to the Angel and Venture Capital investment process follow seasoned, experienced lead investors.

“Over the years, MicroVentures has built a platform that gives investors the ability to diversify investments in early to late stage opportunities. Our level of due diligence and customer support are unique resources angel investors previously did not have access to,” stated Bill Clark, Founder and CEO of MicroVentures. “Investors are increasingly seeking diversification and international exposure. MicroVentures through the 500 Startups Fund III provides both, while reinforcing its long-standing commitment of supporting investor demand for diversified opportunities.”

Using this growth strategy MicroVentures had amassed more than 4,000 investors by the end of 2012 and over the past three years it has grown 625% to a very large pool of more than 25,000 global investors who have invested approximately $125 million in 900 companies.

Unlike typical broker dealers, which only solicit investments ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 and up, the MicroVenture site allows accredited as well as non-accredited investors to invest in a wide variety of funds that range from investments of $1,000, $3,000, and $10,000 and up. This allows investors to diversify their portfolio and spread their eggs across multiple startup baskets, which reduces risk and increases the chance of being able to discover and participate in the next Facebook, Oculus, or Pebble Time Watch at a very early stage.

The 500 Startups runs a four-month Accelerator Program for Startups that culminates in a private, invite-only Demo Day where each startup presents to a group of select investors in an effort to attract additional seed funding. About 30 companies participate in each four-month program offered at its various locations.  Batch 12 began January 2015 in San Francisco.

In addition to investing through its accelerator program, 500 Startups invests globally in early-stage companies through various seed-stage investment funds.

Across numerous funds, 500 Startups has committed approximately $125 million to over 900 portfolio companies.

The inaugural investment fund, Fund I, was formed in July 2010 and achieved an ultimate fund size of $29 million. As of September 30, 2014, the internal rate of return for Fund I stood at 18% with investment exits worth approximately $13 million.

Fund II was formed in April 2012 raising almost $45 million. Fund II has achieved $2 million in exits and a net internal rate of return of 27% as of September 30, 2014.

While Fund I and Fund II are closed to new investments, the 500 Startups is the fundraising process for four other funds: Fund III, Annex Fund, 500 Luchadores and 500 Durians.

Under its status as a FINRA-registered broker-dealer, MicroVentures offers both primary and secondary investment opportunities through their user-friendly, online equity crowdfunding platform. Series 7 licensed brokers develop personal relationships with Accredited and Sophisticated Investors to provide high-touch customer service, and support investment in startups with confidence.

The crowdfunding portal provides access to a flow of curated, vetted startup investment opportunities and allows novice investors to review due diligence, disclosures and speak with experienced licensed financial professionals prior to making an investment.

CapLinked Enables Crowdfunding Platforms to Close Business Transactions Faster, Exchange Files Securely and Manage More Deals

6 Mar

By Robert Hoskins

CapLinked announced the launch of its new suite of enterprise features to provide cloud-based Crowdfunding platforms with business transactions that are simple and secure. The tools include powerful new options for reporting, file management, and discussions, as well as first-of-its-kind functionality for managing deals on an iPad.

The company—whose investors and founding team include early employees from PayPal—continues to challenge the legacy virtual data room (VDR) services with its elegant product for coordinating on complex business deals such as asset sales, financing and mergers & acquisitions.

CapLinked’s gives Crowdfunding Platforms a Much-Needed Option to Virtual Data Rooms

Separately, CapLinked also announced several new clients using their software, including: Crowdfunding Service Provider (CSP) AI Verified information, Thomson Reuters, Sun Capital Partners Private Equity Firm, NextView Ventures, and investment bank Equity Partners CRB.

CapLinked enables its clients to close business transactions faster, exchange files securely, and manage more deals at any given time. And the company’s new enterprise features promise to make it even easier to securely manage transactions:

  •  iPad Compatibility: Unlike virtual data rooms, CapLinked’s web application has been optimized for use on iOS tablets, making for a seamless experience on-the-go.
  • Enhanced Reports: Workspace administrators can view and download activity reports that establish a thorough audit trail.
  • Bulk Uploading: Transporting an entire folder structure with all of its files into a CapLinked workspace is now secure and frustration free.
  • Conversations: Parties can now reply to updates from workspace administrators directly on CapLinked, making communication secure and trackable.
  • Custom Branding: Clients can enjoy a fully branded experience with their logo and colors throughout CapLinked’s website and email notifications.
  • Investor Reporting: Fund managers and financial institutions can automate splitting PDF documents into individual reports for multiple investors.

“CapLinked’s rapid innovation gives companies and funds a much-needed option to virtual data rooms,” says CapLinked CEO Eric M. Jackson. Business intelligence analyst IBIS World estimates that VDR industry sales will grow by 16% this year to nearly $730 million.

The lion’s share of all revenue is captured by three large players: IntraLinks, Merrill Datasite, and RR Donnelly’s Venue. But a lack of competition has also lead to a lack of innovation, resulting in low customer satisfaction and frequent complaints of difficult-to-use products. Sticker shock is also a frequent problem for clients, who are surprised to learn that VDRs often charge by the page, an unheard of practice in an era where data storage is measured in gigabytes.

“Storing secure data in the cloud for a complex business transaction has nothing in common with getting photocopies at Kinko’s, but virtual data rooms are pricing it the same way,” says Jackson. “Their pricing and technology are hold-overs from the 1990s—it goes to show how they have been shielded from competition for too long. CapLinked is going to change that. Our powerful, intuitive tools make it easy for people across multiple organizations to collaborate on transactions and share sensitive information, and our pricing is completely transparent.”

CapLinked customers can create a workspace for deal management or investor reporting with the click of a button. Customizable templates help expedite the process of organizing files, and a clean, modern interface makes it intuitive to control permissions. And with its new enterprise features, CapLinked now has the most powerful suite of tools for managing transactions available on the market. Training to use CapLinked only takes around 20 to 30 minutes.

CapLinked’s cloud-based enterprise platform that makes business transactions simple and secure. CapLinked is used by companies for managing M&A transactions, raising capital, selling assets, updating investors, and conducting due diligence.

The company was founded in 2010 by Eric M. Jackson (PayPal’s first head of US marketing and author of the award-winning book The PayPal Wars) and Christopher Grey (former senior private equity executive and managing director at a subsidiary of Emigrant Bank).

Its investors include FF Angel, Hercules Growth Fund, Siemer Ventures, 500 Startups, and Peter Thiel, cofounder of PayPal. The Wall Street Journal called CapLinked “the go-to place for setting up and closing deals,” and Inc. named CapLinked to its list of “5 Back-Office Tech Innovations.”
