Roth Capital Partners, a full service investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies, has launched an online investment platform called OpenRound.com.
OpenRound.com aims to simplify the “road show” for growth stage companies and creating access to accredited investors. By leveraging the internet, accredited investors residing around the world can find, review, engage with and invest in growth stage companies. OpenRound makes this process more accessible and transparent by providing an online investment platform.
“This is a logical extension of our business of supporting small-cap public companies. Following passage of the JOBS Act, more innovative companies are utilising the IPO process to raise growth capital,” says Byron Roth (pictured), chief executive of Roth Capital Partners. “OpenRound provides us an opportunity to get involved with private companies at an earlier stage, and follow their progress and growth.”
