About Us

Netshares is a Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) registered broker-dealer and a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) member firm providing investment banking and corporate advisory services. Our advisory services include capital formation, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged finance, and equity financing solutions. We strive to provide compelling investment opportunities to our investors while meeting the capital needs of our issuer clients in an ethical, transparent, fair, and innovative manner.

Industry Focus

As an intermediary, we provide opportunities to connect private companies with investors for securities offered and sold under Title II, III, and IV of the JOBS Act. Netshares provides investment banking and corporate advisory services to small- to medium-sized businesses (SMB’s) and emerging growth companies (ECG’s). We serve a wide range of industries including consumer retail, hospitality, real estate, technology, financial services (fintech), and energy.

The Evolution of Private Investing

Until recent years, investing in private company securities was confined to extremely wealthy investors, known as accredited investors. The Jumpstart Our Business Act of 2012 expanded and democratized regulations surrounding investments in private securities. The JOBS Act’s crowdfunding offering, Regulation Crowdfunding, opened new avenues for non-accredited investors to support startups and small businesses.


Companies can raise money through crowdfunding in three ways: reward-based, donation-based, and equity crowdfunding. Reward-based funds involve contributions in return for rewards or perks from a company. Examples include Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Donation-based contributions require no expected return. And equity crowdfunding entails monetary contributions in return for an investment--equity, debt, derivative, or a hybrid.

Prior to the JOBS Act, private businesses could only crowdfund via reward-based contributions and donations. These tools can still help companies raise capital for innovation and growth, but they do not benefit donors. With Reg CF, a company can now raise necessary funds while offering advocates an actual investment in a business represented as equity, debt, or both.
