seriesOne is a crowdfunding portal 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 ICOs,
in which crypto tokens 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 credit or debit
cards, 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
an SEC-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
debt and equity deals for 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 (SBA), 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. As an SEC-compliant portal, 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.
