Mining Form D filings for quiet deals

Here's a good example of what I was getting on about in yesterday's post: a Mattermark tweet yesterday announcing, publicly, a planned fund that is claiming a 506(b) (quiet; no general solicitation and no general advertising allowed) exemption.

Mattermark is, I think, making a mission of indexing, tracking, rating startups, and anticipating when they will seek funding. In this case at least, the company is accessing the EDGAR database, open to anyone. The link the company supplies in the tweet takes you right to the EDGAR filing.

By the way, I wish more journalists would link to primary sources.
