Rising inflation, volatile public markets, a looming global recession, unfortunate international wars, and more have restricted post-pandemic recoveries.

SeedBlink launches equity management platform Nimity

2024: Simplifying equity management for entrepreneurs

Since its launch in May 2023, equity management platform Nimity onboarded more than 8,000 company representatives and stakeholders, registering over 1,700 companies’ cap tables implemented and over 500 ESOP beneficiaries on the platform. This success led SeedBlink to become the only European platform offering financing, equity management, and secondaries for private equity on a unified platform. 

We enter 2024 with an even greater focus on making equity ownership simpler and more empowering for everyone. Looking ahead to 2024, exciting things await. This year is expected to be a better year for tech startups due to three core reasons: a growth rebound, potential increases in venture capital investment, and an optimistic IPO market,” adds Carmen Sebe, CEO of SeedBlink.

In 2024, the platform plans to expand investment opportunities for investors, including the potential for co-investing in mature companies, develop the secondary market with convertible instruments, upgrade Nimity for enhanced portfolio tracking and simplified investment process, and continue fostering community engagement through organized events.

SeedBlink also aims to enhance its all-in-one platform, focusing on empowering equity ownership, simplifying investor reporting, and streamlining fundraising. The introduction of an academy and networking events, along with an expanded operational presence in the DACH region, Benelux, and France, aims to enhance community engagement and support for tech investors and founders.
