their development stage and investor relations goals. We're very pleased to
be able to complement our hands-on targeting services with an online offering
of BuysideIQ's quality & reputation."

team as Head of Online Targeting, bringing close to 15 years of investor
relations experience with a focus on investor targeting and product
development to the firm.
