[ACCESSWIRE]

PRINCETON, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / May 7, 2015 / Equities.com, Inc., the leading online financial news organization and social community for investors, companies, and advisors, announced that it has enlisted the services of OfferBoard Securities, a national investment bank and broker-dealer, to manage its current raise of $2 million.


Equities.com has garnered over $575,000 in reservations in its fundraising since launching in February 2015 on Crowdfunder.com. The overwhelming response has required Equities.com to bring in additional support to manage the response. "We chose Offerboard, because of their experience and ability to manage fundraising from accredited, institutional, and family office investors, who have all shown interest in Equities.com," said Enzo Villani, CEO of Equities.com

Chris Tyrell, CEO of Offerboard said, "As a leading financial technology company focused on innovating the investment industry, Offerboard views this as a perfect opportunity to leverage the new regulatory changes created by the JOBS Act with innovative companies such as Equities.com. Offerboard runs a robust funding platform combined with the expertise of a Wall Street investment bank. We're excited to be facilitating Equities.com's current raise."

"Equities.com's goal is to empower investors with education, analysis, and access to opportunities," said David Bernard, Chairman of Equities.com. "The JOBS Act provides accredited investors the opportunity to own a piece of our company and really become a part of what we're building here. On Crowdfunder.com we had over 13,000 views of our offering. We're excited to provide an investment opportunity like Equities.com to accredited individual investors. This is another example of how we want to level the playing field for investors."

There are over 50 million investors in the U.S. and over 10,000 publicly traded companies looking to connect with each other.
