Profiling Sellers on Sekondary: Business Angels, Institutional Investors, and Executive Teams
Business Angels or minority shareholders play a vital role in the startup ecosystem. They are often the early investors who provide capital, support, and advice to emerging companies. At Sekondary, we facilitate these early investors the option to monetize their investments, allowing them to sell their shares in a secure and transparent way. Our platform offers them the opportunity to obtain liquidity, which could be used to invest in new promising companies.
Institutional investors, like Venture Capital funds, play a crucial role in the development and growth of startups. At Sekondary, we provide a channel for these institutional investors to effectively sell their shares in the secondary market. This can be particularly useful for VC funds looking to achieve returns and distribute profits to their investors, while maintaining the flexibility to continue investing in other opportunities.
Executive teams and founders are the heart of any startup. In many cases, they have invested their time, energy, and resources into the company, and own a significant portion of the shares. Sekondary offers a platform where they can sell their shares securely and efficiently. This can provide liquidity to founders and executive teams, allowing them to diversify their investments, mitigate financial risk, and in some cases, realize their personal dreams or goals.
