StartEngine Founder’s Summit: Creating Liquidity for Investors in Secondary Markets

StartEngine’s Content Marketing Manager Max Crawford (me!) sat down with co-founder & CEO Howard Marks to discuss liquidity in secondary markets towards the end of the day at the StartEngine Founder’s Summit on April 12th, 2019.

During our fireside chat, Howard and I discussed many topics relating to the opportunity for investors to buy and sell shares in private companies, including:

  • What liquidity means, and why it is important for both investors and companies
  • The regulatory and reporting requirements for companies that have large cap tables with trading investors
  • Where these secondary markets will exist
  • What impact, if any, liquidity has on future funding rounds
  • What liquidity for private companies means for public markets as they exist today
  • Why we haven’t seen liquidity yet, and what it will take for liquidity enter the equity crowdfunding space
  • What StartEngine Secondary is
