Get up to speed with a big development in Asian business

The Stock Exchange of Thailand will launch an online trading platform by the end of this year that’s just for startups. This new exchange is meant to help startups raise funds while making it easier for investors to own and let go of shares in these enterprises.

The platform, called Live, lets any startup registered in Thailand launch fundraising campaigns. Investors trade shares in a similar way to a typical stock exchange, with key differences. Live will not be under stock exchange regulations, so there’s more risk for investors, as the quality of the startups is unverified. Because of the risk involved, trading will initially be limited to institutional investors, venture capital funds and high-net-worth individuals. Share price and volume are worked out between startups and investors and can be discussed via an online chat system operated by Live.

Startups can list on the platform immediately after forming; part of the idea is to help new enterprises receive funding in the very early stages to improve their chances of success. 泰國證券交易所將於今年年底前推出專為初創企業而設的網上交易平台。這個新型交易所旨在協助初創企業募集資金,同時容許投資者更易於買賣初創企業的股票。

這個名為「Live」的平台容許任何於泰國註冊成立的初創企業推出集資企劃。投資者買賣股票的方式,將與典型股票交易類近,不過亦有多項重大的不同之處。Live將不受任何證券交易規範約束,而由於初創企業的質素未經驗證,投資者需承受的風險亦相應增加。基於當中涉及的風險,平台在初期只容許機構投資者、創業投資基金及高資本淨值人士進行交易。股票價格和交易量由初創企業和投資者自行擬定,並且可透過Live營運的網上聊天系統進行磋商。

初創企業成立後,可即時在平台上市,背後的理念部分是為了協助新企業在極早期階段獲取資金,增加它們的成功機會。
