Expert System Enables Start-Ups and Early-Stage Companies to Control Their Own Financing at Low Cost

Commonwealth Capital Advisors (CCA), an investment banking advisory firm, today announced that it has combined a number of software modules and features that were previously sold separately under its Financial Architect System™ product line. It has also significantly reduced the overall cost of the combined products and services.

The Financial Architect System™ is a patent-pending method designed to help entrepreneurs simplify the process and reduce the cost of raising capital through issuing securities. In addition, CCA has added templates for issuing “Seed Capital Convertible Bridge NotesTM” – a simple and rapid form of financing for small companies – to one of its two consolidated product suites.

“The goals of the Financial Architect System™ and the changes we’re announcing today are simple,” said Charles Dreher, CCA’s Executive Vice President. “We want to help start ups and early stage companies significantly lower the costs and increase the speed of raising capital. Just as important, we want to provide business owners with an easy-to-use expert system that will enable them to choose the right deal structure for capital they need without giving up equity unnecessarily.”

“Using our system, an entrepreneur can create the necessary documents for convertible bridge notes in about two hours and start raising capital the same day,” Dreher noted. “To raise additional capital using our system, a client can then produce a securities-offering document, for legal counsel review, compliant with Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 in as little as 20 hours at a fraction of the time and cost it would take using conventional methods.”

“We believe there’s significant and growing demand among business owners for control over their financing strategies. The low cost of the Financial Architect System™ and the way we’ve simplified our offerings into just two product suites designed to meet this ‘do-it-yourself’ approach,” he concluded.

Darmik (darmik.com) – a social network e-commerce enablement platform

Darmik (darmik.com), a social network e-commerce enablement platform firm based in London has launched an embedded stores service.

The Darmik Embedded stores service revolutionizes the online ecommerce market by enabling members to easily embed their Darmik shops into any website, blog, or social network. Before the launch of the Darmik Embedded service millions of social networking participants were unable to sell and distribute their items to one another inside our outside of the networks. With the Darmik service they now have the freedom to sell and distribute anywhere.

None of the existing online ecommerce leaders offer a service that allow its members to sell and distribute items easily anywhere on the internet. William Dyson, Founder and CEO of Darmik, commented: “While most of the current ecommerce payment systems and marketplaces continue to live in an old world where users are locked into their sites and silos; Darmik continues to innovate and revolutionize the ecommerce and digital distribution space. Darmik embedded stores empowers social network users to easily become sellers and distributors. It is time that we empower users by giving them the choice of where they want to distribute their content.

Darmik was founded by William Dyson to enable online social networks to thrive as communities and create the revenue necessary to independently sustain themselves. Through partnerships with other socially responsible firms such as Lightapp and its own internal development, Darmik is creating features that allow members of networks to interact efficiently and allow selected merchants to market relevant goods and services to the networks. Ever mindful of social concerns, Darmik has created a partnership program through which proceeds of part of each sale is contributed to a participating charity.
