The Equity Funding Gap

Small and medium size enterprises do not have as many equity funding options in today's economy because the large stock exchanges will not list their stock. This means that in the local/national competition, local businesses cannot fund their projects with the same options as larger, public firms. The equity funding gap describes a discontinuity in equity funding between about $250,000 and $10 million.
