Web-based Accredited-investor Learning-center Launched by DailyDAC to Help People Invest in Private Equity, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds, and Private Placements

Nine out of ten accredited investors do not take advantage of their status as accredited investors. This means that 90% of Americans who could invest in private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, and private placements do not do so. DailyDAC's new "Web-based Accredited-investor Learning-center" launched to empower these investors.

DailyDAC, LLC is pleased to announce the complete redesign of its website.

“The redesign marks the evolution of DailyDAC from being strictly a lower middle market M&A deal aggregator to becoming the web-portal-learning-center for the accredited investor,” according to Kristen Weber, a director and co-founder of DailyDAC.

DailyDAC began with a singular focus: to try to help sellers of distressed companies quickly find buyers. As Weber explains, “the scope quickly evolved to include all situations requiring quick transactions.”    

As word of DailyDAC has grown, more and more intermediaries have expressed interest in using it to attract investors to other investment opportunities. In response, DailyDAC launched its redesigned website on December 1, 2011.

According to DailyDAC’s chairman, Jonathan Friedland, “while there are at least 8 million accredited investors in the United States, far less than a million of those people actually conduct themselves as such.” In other words, “the universe of people who invest in private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, and private placements is much smaller than the universe of people who are legally permitted to do so under the securities laws.”

According to Friedland, the goal is even more ambitious: “If the Senate passes the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, the Securities Act of 1933 will be amended to provide exemptions that permit the sale of unregistered securities to non-accredited investors where the aggregate annual amount raised through such issue is $5 million or less; and individual investments in the securities is no more than the lesser of $10,000 and 10% of the investor's annual income.” DailyDAC’s intends to be a point of entry for investors who seek the diversification and superior returns of more sophisticated investment vehicles, especially as the law is relaxed to allow more investors to enter this space.
