Millions of people watch the news or read the paper and think "I want to invest, but I'll never have the funds to take the risk".
Good news: We changed that. We made it possible for anybody to earn stock in our publicly traded startup just by shopping. Now, with over 80,000 shareholders who earned stock by shopping, you can buy our stock using your full-service stockbroker.
You can buy and sell iConsumer's stock on the stock market, but iConsumer hasn't done a tradtional IPO yet. That's why this is an amazing opportunity. It's early. The stock is hard to buy and sell. Figure on holding your stock for awhile, until iConsumer gets big enough to do a traditional IPO. That's the plan.
Why are we publicly-traded then? To legally have 1,000,000 ordinary people as investors, and not just rich folks, we jumped through tremendous regulatory hoops (the 2012 JOBS Act). That made us "public".
That has three major advantages for investors that you won't normally see in a startup:
First, we have audited financial statements and twice yearly SEC reporting (1-K's and 1-SA's). Way cool. Second, our 47 page offering undergoes annual SEC regulatory review and has enormous detail and history. Third, when it's finally appropriate to do a tradtional IPO, the road is much shorter.
