Platform continues to democratize access to private markets with over $300M invested in 50 companies
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Linqto, the world's first financial technology investment platform democratizing access to private markets for accredited investors, today announced the surpassing of several platform milestones, showcasing the company's long-term, sustainable growth. Founded in 2020, Linqto now has over 500,000 users across 110 countries and has invested over $300M in upwards of 50 companies.
Linqto strives to provide a superior user experience that continuously innovates and enhances offerings to meet the needs of customers in this rapidly evolving investment environment. In response to customer feedback, earlier this year, Linqto added a new functionality that provides true liquidity to private markets by allowing users to buy and sell investments in companies on the platform prior to a liquidity event. The company also rebranded to align with its mission more closely and now non-accredited investors have the ability to invest in select companies on the platform at a more accessible entry point of $2,500.
"We are proud to continue to democratize access to the private markets, as these types of investments are historically very lucrative but difficult to access for the public," said Joe Endoso, President at Linqto. "As more companies are experiencing liquidity events, like IPOs or M&As, following a dry market period over the last two years, we are excited to continue providing opportunity to have early access to in-demand companies."
Since its inception, Linqto has provided investors on the platform access to some of the world's leading unicorns and private companies, including Ripple, Circle, Brex, Epic Games, Acorns and more. Accredited investors gain early access to these companies for a minimum investment of $5,000. Users on the Linqto platform have seen several liquidity events through public offerings or acquisitions for companies such as Coinbase, Robinhood, NerdWallet, SoFi, Marqeta and Innovium.
