This week’s episode of the Grow VC Everyone Funding Startups podcast explores the Facebook IPO fiasco and discusses what the disappointing offering says about the state of the U.S. capital markets.

Joining us for this episode is Dara Albright, founder of NowStreet Journal – the voice of the private company marketplace. Dara explains why Facebook’s IPO is symptomatic of a broken public market system and how retail investors are “no longer willing to serve as the exit strategy for the privileged.” Dara also brings hope. She discusses how the the JOBS Act will democratize capital formation and return the public markets to their rightful place as the engines of economic growth.
