Key Deal Facts

IPOs are a huge business ($20 billion in fees in 2021) and the process is highly antiquated. Retail investors are almost always excluded from participating in IPOs. Our model fixes that. ClearingBid makes investing in an IPO as easy as investing in a public stock is today. Only approach in the market that can allow all investors to invest in IPOs the 1st day of pricing. $6M capital raised to date from insiders, industry executives and angels. Powered with a proprietary pricing engine designed by world-renowned exchange technology architect. Drives true market pricing, the way we believe all companies will go public in the future.
