Private Company Stock Exchanges
Last month I wrote a blog entry on with SecondMarket which is trying to establish a way for holders of private company stock to trade stocks. SecondMarket is not alone in an attempt to provide liquidity to private company shareholders.
SharesPost is offering an online platform where people can list their private company shares for sale and get bids for the stock using a “Craiglist” type model. Other companies jumping into this same pool are InsideVenture – looking to help private companies connect with institutional investors and XChange which provides a networking platform to bring buyers and sellers together.
