We are seeking a Legal Counsel (male/female/diverse) to work with us on all legal matters related to venture capital, digitalization, tokenization, and regulatory affairs.

About us

AQUATY was founded by a tech entrepreneur, a former Managing Director at McKinsey, and a Chartered Accountant with the goal of increasing accessibility to equity in the venture capital market. By developing digital and decentralized solutions along the entire venture capital value chain, we aim to remove barriers to entry and provide a platform for investors, founders, and venture partners to connect and collaborate. Our software tool guides users through the financing process and enables the management and future trading of shares (establishment of a secondary market). In mid-2021, we closed our first financing round with a seven-figure sum and attracted notable investors. We have already demonstrated proof of concept on the market and are diligently working towards the launch of our product in 2022.
