About Us

Hello, we’re Nth Round

Nth Round is a technology company that builds modern power tools for private company CFO's. Businesses of every size—from new startups to established funds—use our software to manage their equity and delight their investors.

Democratizing private finance

Liquidity has been a serious need in private finance for many years. One reason for this liquidity challenge is that, unlike in public markets, generally only high net worth investors may engage in private equity transactions. This means that a private company CFO must oversee every purchase or sale to assure compliance. We envision a time in the near future when founders, investors, and key employees will be free to buy or sell their shares without worry,  hassle, or prohibitive fees.

At Nth Round, we are committed to providing liquidity for you and for your company. We know that private investors often wonder when they can monetize their investment. Being patient is not the best answer. We want to facilitate liquidity now, and whenever you like going forward.

Founded with 50+ years of private market experience combined.
Seed round raised in 2018, to elevate a mission of increasing private liquidity,
Backed by some of the best investors and advisors in the world.
