Futurizer AS is an Internet business accelerator headed by Bjvrn Wolrath,
former chief executive officer of global insurance operation Skandia AB.
Knexa.com allows anyone to make money by self-publishing ideas and insights
on the Knowledge Exchange Auction. Books, booklets, articles, lessons,
papers, advice, how-to’s, reports, audio files, video files, memoirs, even a
list of time saving links, all can be auctioned, says the company, which
charges a small fee for each listing and gets 10 percent of the sale price.
Under the agreement, Demand will own 40 percent of Knexa Europe for which
Futurizer is arranging funding in excess of $10 million. Knexa Europe will
establish regional Knexa knowledge auctions that will also be a source of
content for Knexa.com.
Knexa.com and the regional sites operated by Knexa Europe will share revenues
generated by content resulting from each other’s marketing campaigns. Also,
Demand will issue to Futurizer AS 1 million warrants, each warrant entitling
the holder to purchase one common share of Demand stock at a price of $1.32
per share for a period of two years, subject to certain vesting restrictions
and the approval of the Canadian Venture Exchange.
