The private capital markets contain 450 million private companies (compared to 50,000 publicly listed companies). Facilitating participants include broker dealers, securities attorneys, secondary market operators, marketers, compliance managers, auditors, payment networks, regulators, etc. These are highly fragmented, operating in silos, inefficient, and technologically underserved.
