    Jun 3 2011: Equitymarket 3.0 is an online industry network to facilitate collaboration and distribute information amongst companies, advisers and investors in the equity market and bridge the “middle gap” in developing countries. An online industry network could service the “missing middle” and lower transaction costs, deepen capital markets and catalyze capital and make a rapid contribution to economic development of developing countries, including Africa. It would connect companies, advisers and investors in the 1st and 3rd world and provide a virtual platform for finding, analysing and monitoring investments in Africa.

    The Equity Market online network is a Web 3.0 online network (or Facebook) which allows companies, advisers and investors to see straight through the market and collectively self-publish, match, learn, validate and consume 20+ types of equity market content in hours (not months). It is a platform for a global market. It provides a costless and immediate means to distribute information, facilitate collaboration, exchange content and facilitate transactions. The system provides applications to enable companies, advisers and investors to do what they do everyday in an open, transparent internet platform. Content includes Profiles (companies, advisers and investors, countries, industries), Classifieds (Research, M&A, Investment, Employment, Project, IPO / Bookbuild, Events) and News (Audio, Video, Blog, Article, Announcement, Report, Pictures).
