Equidity Announces the Economic GrowthSTARS Awards
GrowthSTARS Nominees Are the Top Pre-IPO Companies Creating Economic Growth & Jobs; Airbnb, Cloudera, Dropbox, GoPro, Hulu, Marin Software, Palantir, Square, Violin Memory & Twitter Among the 135 Nominees Honored

SILICON VALLEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Equidity™, the company dedicated to better IPOs, today announced the first 135 Nominees for the Economic GrowthSTARS Awards, honoring the "Heroes of the Economy," which collectively have the potential to deliver five million new jobs, upon remediation of the IPO process and the completion of their IPOs. These groundbreaking "Academy Awards for the Entrepreneurship Industry," honor the top late-stage, IPO-track companies holding the greatest promise for economic growth, and their investors, founders and CEOs. Nominations are open through April 30, 2013. The GrowthSTARS winners and special category awards will be selected by an independent judges board of leading long-term growth QIB investors experienced in late-stage and IPO investing, with contributions by Equidity's investor members. A full list of the nominees can be found in a special publication available at:, or also below.

GrowthSTARS nominees will benefit from better collaboration with the investor community via confidential and secure communication and information sharing on the Equidity 360˚platform beta, a cloud-based platform that connects them directly with the highest quality long-term growth investors with late-stage private and IPO investing interests. The Equidity 360˚ platform is invitation-only and designed to leverage the power of the network to provide a haven within the current dysfunctional IPO industry ecosystem. The Platform delivers the best relationships and tools to support pre-IPO research and PIPO™ private placements in the $25 to $500 million range. The full list of nominees can be found below. Equidity will be hosting a premier event designed as an "Academy Awards for the Entrepreneurship Industry" to honor the GrowthSTARS winners, and educate America about where its economy will experience its next potential innovation and job growth.

"For the past decade, the nation has been experiencing its biggest backlog of great companies that easily would have been public in the early '90s when I first started working with IPOs," said CEO and Founder Mona DeFrawi. "The IPO process has been broken for over a decade, and every American should be concerned, as these companies deliver 21% of annual GDP, and 92% of their jobs post-IPO. Equidity's Economic GrowthSTARS are the companies with the ability to fix our economic growth and unemployment issues, and Equidity wants to give them the recognition they deserve, as well as provide them with an IPO on-ramp and investment opportunities that will fix the IPO backlog and boost the economy. If all the GrowthSTARS could go public today, we soon could see five million new jobs from these 135 candidates, alone."

GrowthSTARS: An Academy Awards for the Entrepreneurship Industry

The Economic GrowthSTARS Awards are presented to the most promising companies with IPO potential within the next two years. Equidity is accepting nominations for more excellent candidates alongside the first 135 initial nominees, which were identified through more than a year of research efforts with partners and advisors in the investing, legal, accounting, financial printing, investment banking, venture capital, entrepreneurial industries. To nominate a GrowthSTARS company, go to Most GrowthSTARS nominees have well over $40 M in annual revenue (many with $200M+) and over 100 employees (some with 1,000+ employees). Equidity's QIB investor members and GrowthSTARS judges will make the final selections of the 50 GrowthSTARS winners, and 50 RisingSTARS honorees. Fourteen special category awards and two special investor awards also will be presented.

Equidity 360˚: A New Recipe for IPO Success

Equidity offers a unique combination of a technology platform for the highest quality QIB investors only, combined with customized advisory services for the top, pre-IPO client companies. Equidity provides a structured, secure and transparent research and collaboration environment, hard wired to replace missing capital markets infrastructure that has disabled the traditional IPO process' ability to deliver optimal results.

Designed by CEO Mona DeFrawi based on 20+ years of experience building internal functionalities for companies and funds to conduct their own powerful fundraising, IPOs and aftermarket performance, Equidity 360˚ is an "investment concierge" for late-stage companies and the public and private QIB investors potentially interested in such companies -- but whose objectives are often thwarted by the fragmented and opaque nature of the private investing process. The Equidity 360˚ platform is designed to leverage the power of the network to provide a haven within the current dysfunctional IPO industry ecosystem, and deliver the best relationships and tools for pre-IPO research and private placements in the $25 to $500 million range.

Architected for transparency and direct access for an internal "do-it-yourself-toolkit," the 360˚ platform delivers what companies and investors need in order to facilitate optimal results, from the right relationships, to secured document sharing. Built-in privacy and security enable companies and investors alike to search profiles, identify the right opportunities, facilitate introductions and meetings, research and exchange confidential information, and more. Rather than parachuting into lightning-paced public markets, issuers and investors have instant, round-the-clock access to a new kind of structure that supports their long-term goals. Issuers have the tools they need to enable strong and sustainable post-IPO performance.
