LA JOLLA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) - The San Diego Investment Conference, LLC and its signature conference series, West Coast Wall Street, have formed a joint venture agreement with Wall-Street.com. The Excellent Wall Street Movement begins on April 19th
, 2012 in La Jolla at the Aventine. Accredited and institutional investors, small cap companies and business leadership will be present at the launch event.
CEO and Founder of the San Diego Investment Conference, Patrick A. Howell said, "We are at a tipping point of recovery in the American Economy. Business leadership from the private sector is going to get this country going with job creation, prosperity and the best years of American life. Our job is to provide a platform online and real time with the conferences and Wall-Street.com."
Wall-Street.com Co-Founder and CEO Jerry Burden said of the movement, "Aside from the obvious co-branding opportunities, there are substantive opportunities for our two organizations to continue to serve small businesses as we have in the last 3 years of the Great Recession with exposure, access to accredited and institutional investors and fostering capital market growth with exposure."
"The best traditions of Wall Street are with small businesses which grow into mid cap companies which grow into larger companies. That's how we grew out of the industrial age with Ford Motors and American Steel. It's how we grew at the end of the 20th
Century with companies like Apple Computers and Microsoft. And it is companies like Whole Foods and Facebook at the advent of the 21st
Century which signal our continued business leadership across the globe. Our two organizations will do the same with capital formation as well as small and micro capital markets."
The two organizations will work together on their web platform to create a virtual and real-time movement interested in supporting small businesses in the micro-cap, small cap and mid cap markets with investor relation services, access to funding and business development opportunities at the highest levels. Several other projects are underway from the two organizations within the 2nd
fiscal quarter of 2012.
Patrick A. Howell continues, "We hope to work together with other investor relations, service and media platforms as the Big Biz Show, MZ Group and Service Team Inc. to increase investor outreach. In the area of capital formation we will continue to work with our accredited and institutional membership as well as sponsors as CapFlow Funding (www.capflowfunding.com
), Equities First Holdings (www.equitiesfirst.com
) and Seale and Bears (www.sealebeers.com
). With the new bi-partisan support of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act in Washington, we anticipate our movement will foster greater participation and enthusiasm by the investment community and leadership nationally."
The Jobs Act or Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act was signed into law by the President of the United States with bipartisan support on April 5th
, 2012. The law is intended to encourage funding of United States small businesses by easing various securities regulations. The Jobs Act eases the requirements that small companies must meet to raise money by significantly streamlining the paperwork that companies must complete.
The national campaign, the Excellent Wall Street Movement, will begin April 19th
at 11:30 am in La Jolla at the Aventine and begin working its way up California to Newport Beach, Beverly Hills, San Francisco and Las Vegas as well as across the nation in Florida and New York City in successive events.
