Some of tech's hottest private companies have long been trading their stocks.
Now a Bay Area based company will allow some of the rest of us to get in on the potential action of some of the Silicon Valley's virtual billions.
If the SEC approves the IPO, investors will be allowed to invest in a closed-end mutual fund, which is when small investors pool their money together to buy larger stocks or bonds.
The group will then use the money to purchase private stock in companies such as Facebook on the secondary market.
Individual investors return will be based on the success of the private companies that NeXt BDC Capital Corp fund invests in, which may be as close as the rest of us get to owning a piece of Mark Zuckerberg's billions.
