About the OTCQB
The OTCQB Venture Marketplace is for entrepreneurial and development stage U.S. and international companies giving them access to U.S. investors, without the duplicative regulatory costs required of listing on a traditional U.S. exchange. The OTCQB provides a high level of visibility and access to U.S. investors in the OTC market. The OTCQB is fully electronic and gives investors access through all major online and full-service brokerage firms in the U.S., including Schwab, E*Trade, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade and Fidelity. Trades are settled and cleared in the U.S. similar to any NASDAQ or NYSE stock, and trade reports are disseminated through Yahoo, Bloomberg, Reuters and most other financial data providers.
