The Long-Term Stock Exchange (LTSE) is creating an SEC-regulated national securities exchange designed to align great companies and long-term investors with the shared goal of value creation. They have assembled a world-class team of experts and advisors located in New York, San Francisco, and DC with deep expertise in finance, regulation, law, and technology. Eric Ries, an entrepreneur and author of the New York Times bestseller The Lean Startup, is the founder and CEO of the LTSE. Eric is the creator of the Lean Startup methodology, a global movement and management philosophy practiced by companies large and small. He founded a number of startups, including IMVU, where he served as CTO, and has advised on business and product strategy for startups, venture capital firms, and large companies, including GE, partnering with them on the FastWorks program. The LTSE seeks to end the twenty year decline in the number of public companies in the United States by creating a new listings venue that serves issuers (companies) and investors and prioritizes long-term value creation.
