About Us

Public capital markets should be more accessible for companies regardless of their size. Using technology to reduce costs and increasing speed to market is going to be key to realize this vision. For overall market efficiency, market participants need to collaborate and their processes need to be streamlined and structured. We use technology to create an ecosystem for market participants, be it lawyers, bankers, advisors, issuers or regulators.

“Change is constant”, however for real change a culture of inclusiveness is important and we believe that by providing tools for all market participants in one place, we are able to take the first step towards a future where the market is efficient and accessible to everyone.

Our journey in capital markets has been unique and we have always believed in solving todays problems. We focus on non trading processes and today’s problems in capital markets allowing market participants to collaborate using structured data on capital markets transactions
