Company Description

The world is complex and things are rarely black and white. Whether it's a clickbait headline or green-washed environmental claims it's hard to know what a brand really believes in. We saw a need to simplify through radical transparency. At Ponto, we are re-imagining the consumer apparel space. We provide hybridized footwear that effectively (and fashionably) transitions from work to play and everything in between- while always keeping the planet in mind. Simply put, we're shoes made better. From sugarcane based outsoles to our chrome-free recycled leather uppers, Ponto's are made from bio-based and recycled materials.

Security Description

A SAFE is an agreement between you—the investor—and the company in which the company promises to give you a future equity stake based on the amount you invested. It also involves some kind of a triggering event that must take place in order for you to get your future equity stake. Be careful as you may only get equity if a particular event is triggered.
