Through adoption of the new Rule 506(c) exemption, the Securities and Exchange Commission recently lifted the decades-old ban on general solicitation to allow private companies raising capital to appeal directly to potential investors who are not part of their existing network of friends and family.  In the first six months since adoption, operating companies filed to raise $6 billion using general solicitation.  And the substantial majority of these companies are taking a “do it yourself” approach to capital raising.

Against this backdrop, Investor Access developed DealScene to provide a turnkey presentation and deal processing platform in a customizable online environment where companies offer their securities directly to accredited investors. DealScene gives companies investor screening tools, creates a secure environment for companies to share their stories with investors, establishes a second layer of access control to company documents, and provides a back-end process to support efficient closings. Investors receive due diligence information, review investment documents, and participate in discussion forums with managements and each other.

“With the introduction of general solicitation and the appeal of the internet to create connections to investors, more companies need online tools to handle their securities offerings,” said Brad McGee, cofounder of Investor Access, “DealScene is a robust and secure environment that can save companies time and development costs that would be necessary to recreate the capabilities and interactive experience DealScene offers.  This leaves companies free to focus on developing connections to investors.”

“The benefits of DealScene aren’t limited to companies.  Until now, access to investments in private companies relied on exclusive connections and private communications. But recent changes in the securities laws now permit open communications between investors and companies raising capital, creating a transparency previously absent in small company investing.  DealScene affords accredited investors an engaging experience where they can access private placements online and interact with each other and company managements,” Mr. McGee added.

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.
