Only those who have an overview of their shareholders will lead their company to success. Therefore, switch to the most innovative share register now.
  • You do not have an overview?

    from the foundation to IPO

    A startup that grows not only pleases founders and investors, but often also employees who receive stock options. However, the more dynamically and rapidly a company grows, the more difficult it becomes to keep track of all the shares issued and their individual rights. It is therefore advisable to rely on a scalable, digital share register right from the start.
    "The bigger we got, the more confusing our share register became."
  • Your share register is a labyrinth?

    Always keep the overview

    Most share registers of unlisted companies are neither properly maintained nor clearly structured. If they are kept on paper, there is an additional risk of material loss. But share registers in complex Excel sheets are also risky: their complexity and the lack of assurance of legal security create challenges for new investments. Time to switch to Aequitec.
    "What our share register looks like? We have a big, big Excel."
  • Do you want to be attractive to investors?

    Attractiveness through secure transparency

    As an investor, every investment is a bet: Will the company be successful? Can I support it in a targeted way? What is the vision of the board of directors? This uncertainty is gladly accepted. However, it is all the more important to ensure that the right processes are in place for investment and share transfer. This is the only way to ensure that investors have a solid investment in their portfolio.
    "If I invest, I want to be able to sell. I want to be able to sell."

    Securing the share history

    The transfer of ownership of shares is a delicate matter: it must be handled correctly. Errors that occur here can either only be corrected later with great effort or are irreversible. A complete chain of title, i.e. the share history, must be verifiable at all times. Aequitec's share register, with its simple and clear processes, therefore ensures that you never lose track of things and can handle all steps in a guaranteed legally compliant manner.
