MediaShares is a financial services company that licenses our U.S. Patented business method, software, and services to all types of companies who raise capital through online stock offerings sold to their fans, customers, or affinity groups.
While our methodology works well for both startups and established companies, it works exceptionally well with all companies having large and active online communities that can be accessed as potential shareholders.
Our business method is fully SEC compliant, and uses a process to sell shares called Direct Registration / DRS. Currently in common use for S-3 registered offerings, our system can be adapted to any type of online equity offering, including fully registered IPO’s, Regulation D offerings to accredited investors, and the anticipated Crowdfunding offerings soon to be approved for entrepreneurs.
MediaShares Licensee Companies use our tools to sell their stock directly to investors on their own Websites or Social Media pages, who purchase shares through our proprietary system called QwikShares.
Similar to Amazon’s "One-Click" Payment system, QwikShares stores an investor's pre-qualified profile and payment information, allowing an investor to instantly buy shares online through an ACH debit from their checking account, eliminating the need to open and fund a typical brokerage account.
QwikShares is a key element of MediaShares' methodology and platform to facilitate Crowdfunding.
