Investing in Start-ups Less Risky Than Stock Market?

Stock trader, Howard Lindzon, believes that it is less risky to invest in start-up companies than the stock market.  He made this stunning statement in an interview on Tech Ticker (please see the full interview).  Mr. Lindzon believes that the stock market is rigged and that investors have more control when they invest in start-ups.

I don’t know whether this is good news or bad news.  It is good news that at least one investor is more interested in building businesses than just trading stocks.  On the other hand it is bad news if even a professional trader believes the stock market is rigged.
