Our goal is to create new opportunities for investors to trade unlisted securities, streamline capital raises, and provide clear audit-ability.

We are a small, efficient team, focused on getting code out the door and delivering better outcomes for our product and our customers. We pride ourselves on giving everyone a voice at the table, and working collaboratively.
