Comments to Jacob Parry’s article

Please note my comments to Jacob’s article and specified the distinction between accredited and non-accredited investor crowd. Note how we will apply best practices when managing publicly listed companies to private companies. We are simply reinventing the public capital markets. As soon as we involve the crowd, everything is public. As soon as we use OPM – other people’s money, they are entitled to timely full disclosures and best practices of publicly listed companies. We will slash down regulatory compliance costs through use of proprietary technology.

Jacob – thanks for covering our mission to advance equity based crowdfunding. I wish
to emphasize we are targeting accredited investors first while building a
health fund and the Healthy Crowdfunder platform.

Educating investors about the risks, co-managing and co-developing our investees until
the exit date, and developing proprietary algorithms are some of our
competitive edge.

At our recent crowdfunding meetup I spoke about how Mr Algorithm (high
frequency traders) has taken over the stock exchanges at the expense of SMEs’
access to capital and liquidity. The best antidote is algorithm itself combined
with our creative and entrepreneurial skills. The securities regulators and
securities rules are so far behind what technology can do now. One of our jobs
is to prove to them that technology itself is one of the best weapons against
fraudulent actors. Several KYC (know your clients) and KYP (know your products)
job routines can be automated. Algorithm can also detect anything that is out
of pattern. Think IBM’s Watson.

The broker/ dealers provide only a partial investor protection. The buck stops at
the CEOs, CFOs, and independent directors who report to shareholders, who stand
to lose the most if they don’t perform their fiduciary duties to shareholders.
As the strategic advisers and co-managers of these ventures, we will provide
better protection since for each investee, we are investor/shareholders ourselves.
