As a big fan of both Fairmint and Gilded, I’m super excited for this webinar featuring the founders of both companies.

If nothing else, last week’s Robinhood/GME debacle highlighted how broken our current shareholder system is. That problem is what Fairmint is focused on solving by transitioning the world toward stakeholder capitalism and giving founders the opportunity to turn their equity into their most powerful community engagement tool.

At the core of Fairmint’s toolset enabling stakeholder capitalism is the Continuous Agreement for Future Equity (CAFE) an alternative to the SAFE. The CAFE was created to enable:

  • Founders more long-term control of their company,
  • Stakeholder access to the financial upside of companies they love and use,
  • Investor liquidity 24/7

The CAFE is the combination of a SAFE and DeFi. Using the CAFE, companies can get the most value out of their equity by aligning the financial interest of founders, investors and stakeholders to the financial success of the company.

The webinar will feature Fairmint’s cofounders giving an overview of their service, and progress to date. That will be followed by Gilded, which has an offering underway on Fairmint, with over $155,000 raised in the first seven days. Gilded will be discussing why they choose the Fairmint platform for their capital raise, and their experience to date.

Gilded empowers businesses to transact globally, using crypto to help businesses get paid faster and more transparently, with dramatically lower fees.

There will be plenty of time at the end for questions from the audience.
