“Retail investors’ ownership of stock is decisively vital for many companies that have little or no Wall Street interest or institutional activity, yet need to develop new liquidity and raise capital,” said John Viglotti, VP of Investor Relations Services at PR Newswire.  “Small and micro-cap companies, in particular, need more accessible, timely and affordable opportunities to transparently tell their story to a potential audience that can buy their stock.”

Thousands of investors. Zero travel.

Like a physical investor conference,’s virtual events encompass all of the areas that one may find at a physical event, including:

  • Auditorium – View live and scheduled presentations and Q&A interactions with speakers and participants
  • Exhibit Hall – interactive CHAT with senior executives and management, watch pre-recorded materials, download annual reports, investor kits, surveys and other information about new products and services
  • Lounge – Social network with others to build new relationships with like-minded investors

”Corporate presenters and conference attendees alike find events informative and worthwhile to attend”, said Derwin Wallace, Director Corporate Relations at BetterInvesting.  “Many of our members are interested in hearing directly from the senior executive leaders of the companies they are considering for stock purchase.”

To date, there have been more than 150 presentations at from companies ranging from Mega-cap NYSE listed companies canvassing retail investor base to complement their institutional presence to international companies looking to engage with USA-based investors  to OTC Markets companies looking for a self-directed  loyal ownership base.
