Linqto Announces Affordable and Accessible Unicorns Investing

Press Release – updated: Feb 12, 2020 07:00 PST

SAN FRANCISCO, February 12, 2020 ( – LINQTO, the platform for global investor networks of Accredited Investors, today announced the launch of a new investing platform for private securities. Equity in Unicorns is now accessible and affordable to all Accredited Investors. Small investors can make private market investments in a simple, quick, and relatively inexpensive way.
Bill Sarris, CEO of Linqto said, “Small Accredited Investors now have the opportunity to participate in the growth and superior returns of private markets, as large institutional investors have done over the past 30 years. Private investing made simple.”
Of the world’s estimated 45M Accredited Investors, all of whom are legally eligible to invest in private markets, only about 2% are actively invested in the asset class. The remaining 98% of Accredited Investors have no way of accessing and exploiting investment opportunities in private markets. This means that the 98% must wait for unicorns to go public before they can buy the unicorn shares. In so doing, they forego the greater return potential afforded to earlier investors who were able to buy their shares pre-IPO.
Linqto utilizes a technology-enabled platform to address these issues. Transactions can now be completed in a fraction of the time, reducing cost and enabling a more liquid investing environment. The Linqto process reduces three major friction points in private transactions, making the private securities asset class accessible, affordable and more liquid.
1.     Partnering with globaliD, Linqto has created an on-chain digital solution for KYC/AML and Accredited Investor validation.
2.     By using blocks of shares that have been placed in an SPV that is listed on the issuer’s cap table, unit investments in the SPV reduce acceptance periods and provide for future liquidity by enabling the trade of these interests on the Platform.
3.     Documentation is immediate with auto-filled forms and electronic signatures.
Linqto is a global network that includes over 100,000 Accredited Investors. Many outside of Silicon Valley do not have access to Unicorns or Acorns (startups). Linqto has provided access to the largest global deal flow of Acorns, according to the most recent PitchBook data. Linqto provides the tech platform for Keiretsu Forum.
“European investors have long felt denied the opportunity to invest early into the equity of Silicon Valley unicorns. Today Linqto is changing that by providing access through an easy to use mobile app,” said Matthew Le Merle, Managing Partner Fifth Era/Blockchain Coinvestors and Advisor to Linqto.
Accessibility, affordability and liquidity. That’s private investing made simple. The new mobile app is available in the App Store and the Play Store.

Joy Organics to Make CBD More Accessible in 2020

Press Release – updated: Jan 3, 2020 08:18 EST

FORT COLLINS, Colo., January 3, 2020 ( – Joy Organics is taking several steps to make their products more financially accessible in 2020. The world’s premier broad spectrum CBD brand is introducing price cuts and special discounts to ensure that Joy Organics’ THC-free products get into the hands of those who need it most. 
“When we set out to create this brand, we did so with the purpose of improving as many lives as possible,” says Joy Smith, Joy Organics co-founder and CEO. “We’ve received a lot of messages from customers and potential customers over the past year who have a difficult time affording our products, so we decided to change some things.”
The Colorado brand has not only introduced a low-income, needs-based discount but will also be honoring veterans and first responders with 25% off year-round.
“There is no way to adequately show our appreciation for those who have risked and continue to risk their lives to keep us safe, both here at home and abroad,” says Smith, “but we hope this discount is a start to saying thanks to those who’ve already given us so much.”
In addition to the special discount initiatives, Joy Organics has also cut most of their major product prices by 10-15 percent. Their CBD softgels, salves and tinctures just became a little bit more affordable for the consumer.
“We don’t believe that wellness should be a luxury, so we’re doing everything we can to ensure that those who need and want high-quality CBD products can get it,” concludes Smith. “If you can’t afford our products or if you are an EMT, paramedic, police officer, firefighter or veteran, I encourage you to take advantage of these new discounts.”
