StartEngine was founded in 2014 by Howard Marks, co-founder of Activision/Blizzard, and has since built a community of 180,000+ registered investors and launched 150+ companies. StartEngine is now working to expand its mission to help entrepreneurs and companies achieve their dreams through STO launches. Leveraging its experience and expertise in crowdsale and regulation, StartEngine delivers a one-stop STO solution for companies of all sizes.
StartEngine Primary When our wholly-owned subsidiary, StartEngine Primary LLC, is registered as a broker-dealer, we will be able to offer our customers all the brokerage services that customers need to raise capital through Regulations A and D.
When we are also permitted to operate an Alternative Trading System (ATS), we anticipate launching StartEngine Secondary as a marketplace to trade securities efficiently between buyers and sellers.
StartEngine Cash Account
Through our banking partner Prime Trust (a Nevada Trust Company), StartEngine investors will be able to open custodial accounts on StartEngine's platform. This will allow investors to instantly purchase and sell shares instead of waiting days for transactions to be completed.
When an investor sells shares on StartEngine Secondary, StartEngine Secure, a registered transfer agent, will help record the transaction. We also plan for StartEngine Secure to be able to integrate with other ATS platforms to process transfers outside of the StartEngine ecosystem in the future.
