AIM vs. Nasdaq: What's with all the hype?
Chad Lynch of Pillsbury Winthrop has put together another interesting event titled "AIM vs. Nasdaq: What’s with all the hype?" as a part of his on going series for startups titled "Back Stage Pass."
More and more US based companies are choosing to go public on the the London Stock Exchange's Alternative Investment Market (AIM). The main draw of the AIM seems to be less regulation but the AIM also seems to be a friendly market for smaller IPOs, which could make it more interesting to relatively small companies. Admittedly, I don't know much about the benefits of AIM vs. the LSE, NYSE, or NASDAQ and the panel is star-studded (see below) so I'm very interested in attending the event.
Here are the basic details:
