Building a new type of stock market for new, riskier ventures.

We aim to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We aim to reverse these trends by funding more deserving businesses. Our goal is to build a new type of stock market (“a NASDAQ for riskier ventures”) that lets markets allocate capital to a wide range of businesses, more efficiently than banks or VC’s.
