Small & Medium Enterprise Investment Exchanges are Coming to America 

Small & Medium Enterprise Investment Exchanges are an Alternative Investment Market (AIM) that was first established in London, England in 1995. For far too long Public Stock Exchanges has only service corporations that have been through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). This leaves all other business owners out of a place to access equity and/or venture capital, until now.

However, this lack of equity capital access has given rise to a Small & Medium Enterprise (SME) Investment Exchange. SME Investment Exchanges are spreading worldwide and are being attached to public stock exchanges in cities such as: London, England, Tokyo, Japan, Mumbai, India Johannesburg, South Africa and many other cities around the world. AIM is a sub-market on the London Stock Exchange, allowing smaller companies to float shares with a more flexible regulatory system than is applicable to the main market. Flexibility is provided by less regulation and no requirements for capitalization or number of shares issued. Some companies have since moved on to join the Main Market, although in the last few years, significantly more companies transferred from the Main Market to the AIM.

AIM has significant tax advantages for investors, as well as less regulatory burden for the companies themselves.  The Government of India enacted; the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development (MSMED) Act in 2006. It was a landmark initial taken by the Government of India to enable SMEs to compete successful for equity and venture capital funds. Plus, it addresses the issues, challenges and benefits of the global market. Indians believe SMEs will play a major role in an effort to alleviate poverty in developing countries. SME Investment Exchanges are a viable alternative funding source that small business owners can now access.

These Small & Medium Enterprise Investment Exchanges are coming to America. This type of exchange is being established in the United States, with affiliated branches in major cities with a Private Sector Business Infrastructures authorized. “Thanks, to Title III of the Jobs Act that was signed into law by President Obama, in 2012 allowing unaccredited investors to invest in early stage start-ups for the first time, since the 1930s. There will be an estimated 51 million non-accredited investors eligible to enter the private equity market once, the law is implemented. We expect these SME investment exchanges to be 3 to 4 times larger than all of today’s Public Stock Exchanges combined.

Early Stage Franchise Investment Exchanges are being established in major U.S. Cities to service a new breed of early stage investors. These investors invest in business ventures from the embryonic stage of a new business idea to a full franchise business system. The Early Stage Franchise Investment Exchange is a major part of a Private Sector Business Infrastructure that connects Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to accredited and non-accredited investors.

The Early Stage Franchise Investment Exchange also includes an affiliate membership organization that has special concept funding platforms for investors that are new to private equity investing. This new type of exchange will provide the last opportunity for ordinary people to become part of the emerging business investment class.


The key to successful investing is finding the right business projects, during the embryonic stage of a new business idea. Billionaires are now investing in early stage startups and is driving up their cost, sometimes more than 1000x percent. This is causing a shortage of quality business ventures to invest in thereby, forcing new investors to compete with angle investors and equity capital firms that have more funds to invest. Plus, this is causing new investors to turn to the Early Stage Franchise Investment Exchange to help locate quality investments for them to invest in. Early Stage Franchising provides a new business system that starts at the Embryonic Business Stage. The Early Stage Franchise Investment Exchange is a major part of a Private Sector Business Infrastructure that connects Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to both accredited and non-accredited investors.


Each city that is activated will have access to: virtual business incubators, franchise incubator accelerators, the Franchise Stake Exchange, the Franchise Stock Exchange and the option to build a Private Equity Capital Center. Selected cities can also host Early Stage Franchise Investment Conferences and Global Cities Management Conferences.
