Vision

To unlock the value of shares of private unicorn and late-stage companies by providing tokenized liquidity.

Our Mission

The Elephant (formerly: PrivatEquity.biz), established in 2014, introduces the first security token backed by shares of the most promising private companies around the globe.

Our mission is to open the door to investments in shares of the world’s most auspicious, important and interesting private companies (unicorns & high-profile companies), prior to their liquidity event.

The platform enables shareholders of pre-IPO companies to sell their shares prior to a liquidity event and for investors to invest in such shares through dedicated partnerships represented by Digital Tokens.

By tokenizing equity rights of the most promising private companies around the globe, we make it liquid at all times


Conservative Crypto

By tokenizing the equity rights offered on the Platform:

Investors already active in the crypto space are offered access to attractive investment opportunities and are able to invest in equity-backed tokens representing shares of well-established pre-IPO private companies.

Investors that have yet to join the crypto economy obtain a less volatile and much more regulated way to get started, by bringing off-chain capital on-chain in stable manner.


Tokenization Benefits

By connecting our Dedicated Partnership Work Model to Blockchain technology we aim to:

Expand liquidity to shareholders that have nil or very limited, liquidity available to them.

Tokenization of previously illiquid assets may increase their market value by 10%-40% as illiquidity costs vanish.

Open the investment space to additional classes of potential investors, including the crypto-community, with low entrance thresholds.

Enabling investors to create their own diversified “Pre-IPO Fund”.

Provide stability to crypto investors while connecting them to equity-backed tokens.

Make real-world private equity liquid through tokenization.

Onboard shares of off-chain companies to the tokenized economy.

What sets us apart?

We are the only solution to solve the liquidity challenge for buyers and sellers, by combining the growing pre-IPO secondary market and the Blockchain technology and related digital currencies.

The Elephant Platform enables a low entry point for buyers and sellers, opening the secondary market to a much broader variety of players with greater opportunities.

The Secondary Market

By its nature, private companies’ equity asset class is illiquid, intended to be a long-term investment for buy-and-hold investors. For the vast majority of private equity investments, there is no listed public market; however, there is a robust and maturing secondary market available for sellers of private equity assets.

The private secondary market has experienced rapid growth in recent years, due to a very high IRR and the lengthening of the transition from venture-backed company to IPO – from 3-5 years in 2000 to 10-12 years in 2016. The volume of secondaries transactions increased by 800% over the last 13 years from $7B in 2004 to $58B in 2017 (source: Greenhill Cognet).

The Elephant Solution

The Tokenization Mechanism

The company was founded in 2014 to solve the need of private companies’ shareholders for liquidity for their shares, given the fact that more companies choose to stay private for long periods, resulting in:

Shareholders (founders, seed investors, current and former employees, service providers and to some degree even VCs) having to wait a substantially longer period before they can liquidate their shares.

Traditional investors are denied access to the significant valuation increment that occurs prior to an IPO or an exit.

Our mechanism is based on the creation of dedicated partnerships that buy the shares from the original shareholders and enable investors to invest in these shares by buying participation rights in these dedicated partnerships.

To facilitate greater liquidity for buyers who step into the shoes of the sellers, in late 2017, we have made the decision to tokenize the participation units of these partnerships by creating a dedicated security token representing these participating units, turning them into liquid and transferable assets, governed by smart contracts.

The Dedicated Tokens are equity backed. Upon an IPO or M&A of the companies whose shares are held by the partnership:

The platform operator will distribute the net realized gains to the holders of the Dedicated Tokens of these LPs.

All Dedicated Tokens of that dedicated partnership will be burnt.

The Elephant tokenized platform is the solution the private market has been waiting for!

PRIVATE SALE

PEC – the Platform Token

The Elephant Platform is a members-only platform. Membership is secured through the holding of PEC, The Elephant Platform’s token. To qualify as a member and hold or purchase PECs, an investor must be classified as an accredited or qualified investor and complete our Know Your Client (KYC) process. Once qualified as an Elephant Platform member, investors are entitled to receive a portion of the platform’s annual revenues and participate in Dedicated Token offerings. Investing through the Elephant Platform enables the investor to enjoy token value increases, while still being protected by the asset backing the token and a potential IPO/exit.

Platform revenues are derived from fees collected from share sellers upon completion of the sale of their shares, as well as annual management fees collected from dedicated partnerships. In addition, a success fee is collected when a liquidity event of shares held by dedicated partnerships is held.

 


Our Token Offering – Private Sale

In order to turn our platform into a leading, innovative, global platform that offers a diversified and wide range of tokenized and liquid investment opportunities, we are performing a Token Generation Event (TGE).

The goal of this TGE is to enable The Elephant to expand its already operating platform and shares portfolio into a leading global tokenized secondary market platform.

Participants in the PRIVATE SALE will receive PECs that will entitle them to:

  • 25% of the platform’s annual revenues up to 1.5 times their investment and 15% of the annual revenues thereafter.
  • Access to the Dedicated Token’s offering.
