Venovate Launches the Venovate Marketplace to Create Efficiency in Alternative Investments, Announces Investment from Studio 9+


This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateSpring 2014.

Third up in today’s second session, Venovate launched the Venovate Marketplace:
“Venovate Marketplace is an online platform that makes investing in and fundraising for private securities faster and more efficient.
Our platform offers investors access to the broadest, most diverse set of alternative investment opportunities: private equity, natural resources, venture capital, infrastructure, hedge funds, and real estate. 
All members – both buyers and sellers – are put through a rigorous screening process to ensure that investors are qualified and that fundraisers present complete, transparent information. 
Investors can search for investment opportunities, get questions answered, indicate interest, receive acceptance, sign documents electronically, and close the transaction – all on a single platform.
Venovate is the smarter alternative for investing and fundraising.

Additionally, Venovate is announcing that Studio 9+ has invested in Venovate’s initial round and plans to use Venovate Marketplace for its fundraising activities in the future.
