About Us 

Our team's mission is to use our digital technology to build the right kind of ecosystem needed today to transform private companies.

With the CrowdX network we can steward growth companies and organisations to build a better future for all stakeholders involved.

Our technology - created to bring new efficiencies to capital markets for the benefit of private companies

We come into capital markets with fresh digital technology, rather than layering new solutions across older incumbent systems.

With our own proprietary CrowdX technology,  private companies (or issuers) can experience the same efficiencies as public ones through easy direct market access. They can work closely with our members (brokers) to manage and gain access to liquidity and capital.

Investors, through CrowdX, can benefit from up to date information through plug-in APIs that are fed to the CrowdX broker network.

Everyone benefits as a result. So we can build back better, together.
