Experienced directors set up a new investment company, raise funds from investors to list it, and find a suitable unquoted company to reverse into.
Investors use the skills of those directors rather than be direct crowdfunders to add value to their investment. Since the company is listed on the stock market, investors can exit by trading their shares. This product is designed to be accessible to entrepreneurs with investor protection measures built into it.
The Beansprout Company™ programme might become a significant route for companies to come to market, as the Capital Pool Companies programme in Canada have shown.
