About Us

Our Story

We believe in the power of technology to drive change in the way we do everything and to open up new opportunities. 

 

Early on, we recognized the transformative nature of blockchain technology for the financial services industry. Building on our experience in capital markets, we set out to build the platform that will bring this technology to the private securities markets which have largely remained unchanged. We also recognized that the regulatory environment that underpins and governs the capital markets has successfully provided protection to investors and entrepreneurs. 

 

We made it our mission to build a technology-first platform in accordance with regulations. We invested our time and resources to ensure it is flexible and convenient, yet compliant. Rather than following the crowd into cryptocurrency land, we remained focused on securities and never wavered from our goal of creating a modern platform for investors, entrepreneurs and financial intermediaries. We believe that our platform will make the flow of capital more efficient and help everyone achieve their goals.
