With the recent launch of the KoreConX all-in-one platform, KoreConX is happy to feature the partners contributing to its ecosystem.
As an investment banker, attorney, securities analyst, entrepreneur, and consultant, Sean Levine has a wealth of experience in the private capital markets. He began his career as a lawyer, and subsequently worked with a broker-dealer until the financial crisis, earning four securities licenses during that period. Sean then transitioned to the financial publishing industry, serving as the director of research at a large publishing house. In his last year in that role, the company had launched a newsletter on private deals as Regulation A and CF grew more popular, generating massive interest from retail investors.
In 2019, Sean became affiliated with Entoro. At that point, Entoro had created a listing site for Regulation D 506(c) offerings that resembles a crowdfunding portal’s listing page. In part due to Sean’s leadership, the firm has since grown its practice to include Regulation A and CF clients, as well. In addition to the fact that few broker-dealers have a network of thousands of accredited investors to market their offerings, Entoro plugs its issuers into unmatched retail distribution through its ecosystem partners. The team also provides issuers access to OfferBoard, the company’s listing platform, and manages compliance efforts including KYC-AML. In addition, Entoro operates Clear Rating, a third-party valuation service that helps companies and investors understand the value of their investments. Lastly, they have established a network of preferred service providers especially suited to these exemptions, as many attorneys and other relevant professionals don’t have a comprehensive knowledge of Regulation A or CF. Entoro is registered in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Being a banker (recently earning a fifth securities license) and an attorney, Sean has the expert knowledge to efficiently navigate the complexities of capital raising. With the continued growth of investment opportunities through exemptions like Regulation A and CF, Sean is excited about the benefits to everyday investors. He said: “It’s sad that regular investors feel that the industry is so against them. These kinds of deals, A and CF, are a huge opportunity for regular investors to get in before it gets to [the point of an IPO].”
In working with KoreConX, Sean has seen how the company’s investor funnel streamlines the process. Plus, in some instances, it is more beneficial for issuers to offer their securities through a standalone platform, which is where KoreConX comes in.
