MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--seriesOne, an emerging FinTech leader formed in 2017 by industry veterans with decades of expertise across technology, investment banking, venture capital and financial compliance, announced today its international expansion plans. The group brings much-needed maturity to the often rogue Crypto and ICO worlds, having already signed-up a handful of top-tier deals; each aiming to raise in excess of $20 million on the global markets.
seriesOne’s origin began by acquiring of the technology platform from Funding Wonder, a crowdfunding company formed in 2013.
“For too long, the worlds of finance and capital formation to scale good ideas were relegated to the centers of financial power such as Silicon Valley or New York. We aim to break down these barriers and democratize the process,” said Michael Mildenberger, CEO and Founder of seriesOne. “Now we can enable an interesting company to raise capital around the world in a fully-compliant way, using new innovative technologies like blockchain and crypto currencies. And this is just the beginning of a new age of digitization of global investment banking,” added Mildenberger.
According to CoinMarketCap, the size of the entire cryptocurrency market grew from $16 billion to nearly $600 billion in 2017 alone. Clearly, the world is changing.
The company is working closely with regulators in the US and several jurisdictions around the world, adding all necessary compliance and functionality to perform any private offerings in a fully-compliant way. The platform is now available for deals involving debt, equity or Initial Token Offerings (ITOs - - a regulatory-compliant successor to the ICO), leveraging blockchain protocol and other financial technologies to offer a series of solutions for high-growth companies and investors.
“We think seriesOne is an ideal partner to fuel the growth of high-potential ventures,” said Xavier Gonzalez, CEO of eMerge Americas, a leading technology event where seriesOne served as the official crowdfunding partner at its Startup Showcase.
seriesOne fills a large white space in the marketplace; providing a one-stop-shop for privately-held companies interested in raising money through ITOs, in which security tokens are issued on a blockchain. seriesOne technology is compliant and regulation-ready, providing a cloud-based platform to help organizations raising the capital they need to grow, being able to accept any kind of traditional or crypto investment 24/7 around the globe.
All of seriesOne’s services are conducted via SEC approved exemptions such as Reg D, Reg. CF, and Reg A+, enabling companies to register, market, and escrow fund raising initiatives via compliant securities offerings.
Through its network of dedicated marketing partners, the platform also gives companies access to millions of investors eager to participate in investment opportunities they had no knowledge of before.
