March 20, 2014 – Chris Tyrrell has been playing strategically in the investment crowdfunding space as long as there has been such a thing. Only recently, however, has he stepped forward to launch a platform.

At the end of 2013, Chris licensed the technology used by the Australian Small Stock Offerings Board in Australia to launch OfferBoard here in the United States.  Chris expects the new site to be live in April.
