Default Wallstreet.Com: Fat Cat Investing at the Click of a Mouse : How Andy Klein and the Internet Can Give Everyone a Seat on the Exchange

How Andy Klein and the Internet can give everyone a seat on the exchange.
When Andy Klein dropped out of lawyering to open a microbrewery, he had no intention of revolutionizing the stock market. But then he raised $1.6 million for his upstart Wit Beer through the first independent public offering over the Internet. He not only found himself riding a shock wave of over 3,000 news stories, he found himself in touch with thousands of eager, on-line investors. The entrepreneurial next step was obvious, at least to Klein. He founded Wit Capital, the first investment house to bring investors and capital-hungry companies together directly via the Internet, without brokers or commissions, and without the constraints that once restricted primary offerings to huge investors only.
Told in the breezy style of Liar's Poker, this is the story of Andy Klein's evolution from pampered Cravath lawyer, to pack-the-boxes-yourself entrepreneur, to Wall Street revolutionary out to "democratize" the process of investing. But far more than a fun read, it is a hands-on guide for entrepreneurs and investors alike on how to make the "ground floor" of capitalism work for you in the age of the Internet.
Customer Review: Nuts and bolts of venture capital...from the small guy
This is a great book. It explains Mr. Klein's very innovative concepts of venture capital and the road he traveled to come to the point of Wit Capital. It gives a person hope for raising capital for his/her business without going public. delves into the interesting world of venture capital, an arena which few know about, and less understand. If you are interested in investments of any type, or in the vision of a genius entrepreneur, this book is a MUST read!
Customer Review: How to get financing
In a world where Internet IPO's are taken for granted the books describe the reality on how hard it is to go out there and get your initial investment. I was inspired by the book and couldn't stop reading. Waht you will learn are: - How hard it is to get financing from VC to inital IPO - Who benefits from the stock market (not you that's for sure) - How Internet technology changes an industry I hope that you enjoy the book.
