LIQUITY completes £150k SEIS-approved Founders’ Round

LIQUITY, a new business matching buyers and sellers of private UK company shares; facilitating deals to completion including escrow and custodial services.

Founded earlier this year, has already established a growing network of shareholders, qualified investors, and professional service partners through a series of popular networking events sponsored by supportive city law firms.

LIQUITY is now developing its sophisticated, secure online platform with the full launch being end Q4 2013 – when it will go live with its digital marketplace that will enable private company shareholders to get an exit and empower private company directors to improve liquidity in their company’s equity. LIQUITY’s “liquidity programmes” will provide a broad range of time-saving, cost effective tools for company directors to manage their shareholders and investors.

“We believe that to secure this founders’ round funding so quickly validates our passionate belief that there is a real need for this service and that no other company is offering it at the same level as LIQUITY in the UK” commented Barry Shrier, LIQUITY CEO and founder. “Moreover, whilst we are launching in London, we have support and interest in our new platform from across the globe, including Europe and China”.

Prior to launching LIQUITY, successful international entrepreneur Barry was the founder and CEO of Liberty Electric Cars, a $multi-million cleantech Group of companies, as well as founder of 2 other successful companies and a Deutsche Bank subsidiary.

Ron Henderson, an investor in LIQUITY, commented, “I am delighted to be involved in LIQUITY’s exciting new venture. Providing a structured and accessible market for both investors and sellers in areas not currently serviced is long overdue and has enormous potential. I am confident Barry and his team have the expertise and experience to bring this endeavour to fruition”.
