Business Description

Industry: Asset Management » Asset Management
Compare: » details
Keating Capital, Inc. was incorporated on May 9, 2008 under the laws of the State of Maryland. The Company is a closed-end, non-diversified investment company that has elected to be regulated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act"). The Company is engaged in making pre-initial public offering ("IPO") investments in innovative, high growth private companies that are committed to and capable of becoming public. It provides individual investors with the ability to participate in a unique fund that invests in a private company's later stage, pre-IPO financing round - an opportunity that has historically been reserved for institutional investors. It is the public investment fund exclusively dedicated to pre-IPO investing in the U.S. It provides access to later-stage (i.e., pre-IPO) investments in emerging growth companies that would otherwise be difficult to access or inaccessible for most of its individual investors. Because of its profile as a flexible, non-controlling investor, it is well positioned to participate in the last round of private financing that high growth companies typically need before they complete an IPO. In certain cases, it is able to act as the lead investor in pre-IPO financing rounds because existing institutional investors may be precluded from doing so due to their ownership or board participation. The Company competes with large number of venture capital funds, other equity and non-equity based investment funds, investment banks and other sources of financing, including traditional financial services companies such as commercial banks and specialty finance companies.
