HighCastle launches the Equity Digitisation for Startups Programme

Mar 2 · 2 min read

HighCastle is opening the Equity Digitisation for Startups Programme, which is a first of its kind for the worldwide Accelerators, Venture Funds and its portfolio companies.

“We know how painful the investment legal and management processes can be, so we offer Accelerators and Venture Funds the ability to utilise the advantages of equity digitalisation through the HighCastle platform when investing in their portfolio companies”, said Philip Millar, Executive Director at HighCastle.

HighCastle is a London-based investment marketplace, which provides an end-to-end solution for the compliant issuance, distribution, offering, management and smooth trading of digital securities.

HighCastle provides a full package of draft legal agreements and a technical framework to issue, distribute and manage private securities in a digital form on the secure distributed ledger and blockchain-based share register (instead of current spreadsheet registers). An issuance of securities in a digital form allows private companies to leverage the benefits of public capital markets with even greater efficiency: liquidity premium, 24/7 trading, embedded compliance, easy follow-on rounds, automated dividend payment and many others.

This Programme is especially relevant for the Venture Funds and Accelerators which take equity in the startups and do directs investments. Issuance of digital securities will significantly cut a cost of equity management and help investors to interact with the portfolio companies more efficiently, not to mention that digitisation of private securities is giving opportunity to exit much sooner than IPO.

HighCastle offers companies who are a part of the partnering Accelerators or VCs portfolio to issue and distribute their shares through HighCastle Prime Issuance and Settlement Blockchain Network (Prime Net) for free and use HighCastle share registry service (HighCastle Registrar) free for 6 months.

To be eligible for the Programme startups have to be currently enrolled or graduate from the Acceleration program within the last three months, otherwise, the Accelerator or VCs has to be among the past or current shareholders/investors.

Interested Accelerators and VCs are welcome to reach HighCastle team for details regarding this partnership opportunity.
