Nasdaq Wants In On Crowdfunding Market

In order to get a handle on the new private equity trading markets now being made popular by crowdfunding under Regulation D, the Nasdaq has announced that it will be accelerating the opening of its new trading platform called the Nasdaq Private Market LLC, a San Francisco-based exchange for trading shares in private companies.

This is a joint venture with Shares Post and is an attempt by Nasdaq to create a relationship with hot tech companies before they do their IPO.
