Petaluma, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
The Pacific Venture Club (http://www.pacificventureclub.com) has released a new program to educate entrepreneurs about Direct Public Offerings (also called DPOs) utilizing the resources of the Internet. Direct Public Offerings are simplified vehicles for entrepreneurs to be able to raise venture capital by selling their securities directly to the public. "Direct Public Offerings may be the most viable option for entrepreneurs who need to raise capital in the current economic environment", stated Pacific Venture Club President Robert Coleman. "The devastation of the formal venture capital industry and curtailment of other institutional funding resources has left entrepreneurs with far fewer options than they used to have to finance growth companies and startups. Also, the tremendous growth of Internet tools such as social networks presents entrepreneurs with an unprecedented opportunity to meet people and network online. Successful social networking is a critical component of Direct Public Offerings."
The Pacific Venture Club has a dedicated section on Business Financing located on its website, http://www.pacificventureclub.com. This section presently has a series of articles on investor financing and Direct Public Offerings. In the near future, the site will have interviews with prominent experts on investor financing and offerings. The Pacific Venture Club also intends to offer a workshop series for entrepreneurs who are interested in acquiring the necessary skills to transact a Direct Public Offering.
The Pacific Venture Club has been a resource for entrepreneurs since 1988. For additional information on its programs, contact the Pacific Venture Club at 707-762-2170 or inquire via email at information(at)pacificventureclub.com.
