What is CEX?
CuttingEdgeX (CEX) is an online marketplace that connects everyday investors with independent, social enterprises who need growth capital. The CEX platform lists investments issued via Direct Public Offerings. The platform, launched in partnership with Hylo, provides an ecosystem of tools that serve entrepreneurs, investors, and anyone interested in inclusive values-based investing.
What problem does it solve?
We have been asked time and again by investors in DPOs,
“I love being able to invest in enterprises that share my values and benefit my community – where can I find more of opportunities to invest in DPOs?”
The mission of our platform is to create a one-stop shop for DPOs. Currently, much of the information about these investment opportunities is by word of mouth and there is lots of confusion about how they work. There is currently no platform that provides a legal way for both accredited and non-accredited investors to discover and participate in DPOs.
What does it do?
CEX provides the following tools and services:
- Website and mobile access to the listing platform
- Investor and entrepreneur education and social networking
- Tools for DPO issuers to educate the public about their investment opportunity and on-board investors such as
- online payment tools
- online document review and signing
- backend investor CRM database for tracking investors
CEX launched on September 2, 2013. Please visit www.cuttingedgex.com for more information!
