Equity Crowdfunding Portal Launches Beta Site for Investors and Entrepreneurs
SADDLE BROOK, N.J., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- StartupValley is the future of technology-based startups. The site is an online, equity crowdfunding portal established as a result of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or the JOBS Act. Similar to the thousands of technology startups in Silicon Valley, StartupValley is home to businesses and startups in the technology and internet fields. The site is currently in Beta while the JOBS Act regulations are finalized by the SEC, but allows for preregistration. Once the rules and regulations are published in early 2013, StartupValley will be a fully functioning platform for entrepreneurs and businesses to raise capital in the most pervasive, advantageous way.
For the first time in history, entrepreneurs can build capital without the support of accredited investors. The "crowd" present in equity crowdfunding provides startups with the ability to raise capital from non-accredited investors in exchange for an equity ownership in their company.
As the entrepreneur of his own multi-million dollar business, Daryl H. Bryant founded StartupValley with entrepreneurs in mind:
"As an entrepreneur I know that it's nearly impossible for a startup or business to secure the capital they need. This is one of the main reasons many businesses don't succeed in this country."
Bryant's vision reaches beyond a simple technology startup site. His extensive training in technology and internet bestows a powerful foundation for StartupValley, but his dedication to improve the job market is a reflection of his philanthropic approach to all business endeavors. It is the first step towards the amelioration of business innovation and economic cultivation.
"I believe that the JOBS Act will ultimately create jobs and stimulate the economy, and that StartupValley will become a leader in technological progression. If you have what it takes to succeed in The Valley, then I welcome all entrepreneurs, businesses, and investors to sign up for early access on the site."
Bryant is a member of the CFIRA, a group that works with the SEC, FINRA and other constituents to help establish industry standards. StartupValley also works with Crowdsourcing.org to become an accredited platform in the Accreditation for Platform Standards program.
