Corporate stock options are a competitive advantage for companies wishing to attract and motivate top talent. The option of early liquidity proves to be an enticement, especially when startups tend to postpone going public for so long.
Forge offers companies, their employees, investors, and institutions a means of selling their shares in a pre-IPO stock market, allowing private shares to be traded as freely as public company shares. Forge aims to standardize and bring speed to trades in the private market.
Big rivals include Carta and the Nasdaq Private Market, while others such as EquityZen, Zanbato, and Industry Ventures also pose threats. To strengthen its position in this bustling marketplace, Forge is focused on partnerships and new products; launching products such as Forge Intelligence, its first data product, and Forge Company Solutions. And expanding its global reach through partnerships with Wells Fargo Securities and Deutsche Börse.
