CEO – Vertalo

Description

A blockchain-based cap table and investor onboarding solution for private equity and digital securities

CEO Interview

Vertalo looked at raising funds (for another project that we were working on) via an ICO in September 2017, but one of our co-founders (General Counsel Gautam Gujral) thought an ICO would not be legal, so we looked at doing a Reg D issuance, with a token. We went looking to find partners to help us, and were able to find issuance platforms and trading platforms but we were unable to find any vendors or partners who could help with all of the compliance and cap table technology that we knew we needed. So we started building all of this in early 2018. After we issued our own security token (TALOS) in March of 2018, we turned all of our attention to this problem and never looked back.
The most important and exciting thing to Vertalo is ‘programmatic liquidity’ for private assets. I am most interested in obtaining liquidity for venture-funded startups, as these projects seem to have the hardest time finding exits. The average startup – if it doesn’t fail in its first 2 years – takes 9 or 10 years to find an exit. That’s because there have historically been only two methods for exit: M&A or IPO. STOs are a third way to exit.
Vertalo enables secondary liquidity by connecting ownership directly to sources of secondary liquidity. In other words, we take the cap table – a registry of owners that has historically been offline – and bring it online, place the investment ownership contracts on-chain, and connect the investors and their holdings to exchanges and ATS’s.
We are already busy integrating with key players in the ecosystem.

The private markets are only going to get more exciting. As the IPO model continues to misprice ‘too-late-stage’ offerings, expect real businesses to look to private markets for liquidity & financing options that don’t publicly devalue enterprises or trick retail investors.
