A WSJ´s venture capital blog post commented yesterday on SSX enabling “small startups to raise needed funding by trading on a public exchange.”
As my friend and fellow member at SSX´s Board of International Advisors, Al Comenares, has said: SSX is an “accelerator” for Latin American angel investors. Indeed, SSX provides a training ground for people wanting to add seed and early stage investing to their portfolio.
I view SSX as a strong financing solution built by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, complementing traditional seed and venture capital sources.
SSX is also part of a global trend in capital markets in response to the enormous demand for seed and venture capital arising from entrepreneurs. This demand is fueled by the increasing many faced rol of the Internet in people´s and organization´s daily, professional and business life.
I recomend strongly reading the Wall Street Journal article on SSX and it´s founders.
