seriesOne is a financial technology company designed to liberate corporate finance from the big banks and
corporate elites that have historically dominated the space. What this means for businesses and entrepreneurs
is access to capital they’ve never had before. It means giving investors access to investment opportunities,
particularly in innovative private companies, that they’ve never had before. And it means expanding financing
and transaction options for both. seriesOne enables businesses and entrepreneurs to raise money through
digital securities which are issued on a blockchain, as well as through traditional equity
and debt securities. seriesOne also allows investors to transfer funds in the way that works best
for them: via cryptocurrencies as well as ACH or wire transfers. All of this is
financing unchained—a new world of freedom and opportunity for businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors.
This is seriesOne.
A seriesOne brings investors and businesses together, without the middlemen,
creating new possibilities for each to achieve their financial goals.
The decentralization of the financial markets
The process is still nascent, but the seeds were planted in the aftermath of the 2008
global financial meltdown. Today, digital transformation through blockchain and other
technologies—coupled with the new Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) rules implemented by
the SEC at the end of 2016—is helping to decentralize the world of finance. This shift is
creating new levels of transparency and security and new kinds of opportunities for businesses
and investors without need of intermediation by the big banks. seriesOne builds on this trend,
unchaining finance to enable businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors to directly interact and
transact on a regulatory-compliant portal.
Investors can buy stock in publicly owned companies through the major exchanges or participate
in managed mutual funds, but most people have very limited access to investing in innovative
private companies. At the same time, businesses with significant assets have typically been able
to access financing from a bank or the Small Business Administration, but capital for most early-stage
companies comes in the form of a "friends-and-family" seed round, venture capital funding rounds or,
for rapid-growth companies, an IPO.
Now there is a new option for investors, businesses, and entrepreneurs: a seriesOne round. seriesOne
offers fully transparent financing options that give investors a viable alternative to put their money
to work while providing companies new ways to generate the capital they need to grow and expand.
Making it possible for investors and companies to join forces to achieve their individual financial
goals is what seriesOne does. This is financing unchained.
