  13. 13. SEC may let startups use social networks to raise money April 9, 2011 | Dean TakahashiFederal securities regulators are weighing demands to make it easier for fast-growing companies to use social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to raise money by tapping thousands of investors for very small amounts of shares.The Securities and Exchange Commission is looking at adapting its rules to encourage Internet-age techniques for small companies raising capital. The issue is part of a wider review by the agency into whether to ease decades-old constraints on share issues by closely held companies.Crowd funding could be a cheap source of cash, competing with angel investors who specialize in giving seed rounds to start-ups. Since the amounts of money are small, the downside risk isn’t too bad for investors. But the trick will be in protecting the public from scammers who have no intention of following through on promises.REGISTERED SPONSORING ORGANIZATIONS AND FUNDERS ELIMINATE THE “SCAMMING” ELEMENT 13
  14. 14. Cantor Fitzgerald Bets On An Expanding Private-Stock Market VentureWire October 10, 2011• Cantor Fitzgerald is looking to cash in on a growing secondary market for shares in hot private companies such as Facebook and Twitter. The financial services firm is creating a private markets group to afford clients opportunities to invest in private company stock ―For us this is an opportunity to be the dominant player in a very fragmented market,‖ Shawn Matthews, the firm’s chief executive, told VentureWire.• The market has also drawn interest lately from J.P. Morgan Chase, which raised $1.2 billion for a digital growth fund, and Goldman Sachs Group, which raised $1 billion from its foreign clients to invest in Facebook.• Matthews also said his firm doesn’t plan to rely on existing secondary market players to find deals. ―We come already with a significant investment bank behind us,‖ he said. “We’ll be sourcing our own deals. I think that’s where our competitive advantage lies.”• Based in New York, Cantor Fitzgerald has more than 5,000 institutional clients and 1,400 employees in 30 offices worldwide, the firm said. 14
