Simon Erblich, Founder, IPO Village, states, "IPO Village intends to use a crowdfunding model to support companies going public providing member investors with liquidity and a foreseeable exit. The necessary components to host this type of successful IPO process includes an outstanding back end integration of escrow agent, stock transfer agent, and compliance oversight. For their experience, technology and outstanding customer services, we have chosen New York based VStock Transfer to handle these affairs for us."

IPO VILLAGE BRINGS IPOs TO THE MASSES
A company's IPO, initial public offering, is generally a very closely held and tight knit event. Unless a buyer is well connected, getting an opportunity to purchase shares of stock in an upcoming IPO is next to impossible. Most often an IPO is underwritten by a bank, which flips the stock to only a select group of investors. By the time an IPO stock actually reaches the masses, it has changed hands three times with a price adjustment each time.
IPO Village is now about to change this traditional process.
Working closely with investment banking firm First Line Capital LLC, IPO Village is allowing anyone who wants to buy stock at the pre-IPO price, to get in on a first-come first-served basis. The website, www.ipovillage.com, has a no-risk, no-obligation list available where all investors can sign up to buy stock in the next IPO hosted on the site.
