A person in Germany is on the internet looking for a place to invest some money and comes across an Initial Public Offering (IPO) at IPOVillage for a small company in Texas. The person looks at the prospectus and thinks to himself, “I sure wish I could participate in that IPO.”
He can. Anyone, anywhere who has a few dollars, pounds, yen, pesos or almost any currency can participate in an IPO run through IPOVillage.
While this is a fictitious example of an investor, the basic idea is fact. Anyone, anywhere with an internet connection and money can invest in an IPO through IPOVillage.
Somewhere in Australia, a small company wants to raise capital to expand its operation but is not entirely sure how to do it. The company owner finds IPOVillage and wonders if his company can go through this economical IPO process and be listed on NASDAQ.
IPOVillage is taking crowdfunding to the masses on a global scale.
CROWDFUNDING ACROSS THE GLOBE
Now a company anywhere in the world can take it’s IPO stock offering direct to the public. The company doesn’t have to negotiate through a stock exchange. The lawyers and institutional investors who reap huge rewards on IPOs at the expense of the company and the final investors are now cut out of the picture.
The investor benefits by getting the IPO stock at a much better valuation. What is the IPO price? That’s determined by the issuing company not an underwriter. Stock prices are not artificially inflated by the lawyers and investment banks.
The very people who will help the company grow and become a success will also reap the rewards of that success.
The company offering the IPO benefits by getting all the money from the IPO. The lawyers and banks do not get a cut of the stock sale. That means more money for the company to invest in expansion and improvement.
It does not matter where the company is located or where the investor is located. All that is needed is a company that has properly filed and been approved by the SEC. IPOVillage connects companies to investors around the world.
