“While we are excited about the growth, this is just the beginning of our journey to transform the industry,” co-founder and CEO Brew Johnson said.

“Our goal remains the same as when we started: to level the playing field between Wall Street and Main Street by providing access and transparency to a market that had previously thrived on opacity.”
