Everything you need to know about fundraising, digitising, issuing securities and future-proofing your company for scale.
We are joined by Alexander Green, Founder and Chief Commercial Officer of Globacap.
Alex shares exactly what companies need to know and do to attract investment, digitise to reduce their own admin and cut out errors, future-proof themselves and be ready to scale . He goes into the benefits of waving goodbye to spreadsheets and saying hello to a fully digitised, future-proof cap table that allows for easy, one-click administration of shares, employee share options, convertibles and bonds, with auto-updates for every transaction.
Spreadsheet-based cap tables cause growing pains as your company scales (in fact, around 70% are broken). If you're about to start a new funding round – and share your journey with potential investors – accuracy is business-critical. This is especially true in times of market uncertainty, with many companies requiring new investment.
Alex explains how companies can save time, resource, and up to 80% in administration costs, and finally get the cap table you deserve – a single source of truth that helps you grow. Alex also touches on how to look after the regulatory side of your funding round and provide tips on how to automate your KYC and AML. How Globacap has helped companies not only with securities issuance, but with reducing their admin, and how their software can help companies simplify and automate their entire capital markets life cycle.
Alex also covers: The benefits of applying digitisation and blockchain across securities issuance and administration. This applies to anyone looking to reduce administrative layers around private placements (issuances) and cap tables. Self-encapsulated coding: regulatory checks and automated corporate actions. Liquidity: one-to-one transfers with immediate, digital, settlement finality – no signatures, no manual overheads. Electronic share certificates or novation agreements are executed automatically, with an immutable audit trail and reporting.
