Equal Experts has an established track record of delivering successful, large-scale projects to blue-chip clients. As an agile consultancy, developing the skills to stay abreast of the latest technology is crucial to its continued success. Over the past year it has been developing its core blockchain capabilities, including smart contract development and the ability to integrate blockchain and distributed ledger technology into wider projects.
Investx is the first blockchain project that Equal Experts has partnered on. The consultancy is providing the technical leadership and development expertise required to develop the Investx SME funding platform, powered by security tokens on the Ethereum blockchain.
Dave Hewett, a Partner at Equal Experts who joins Investx as CTO said:
“With Investx we’re building something that’s never been done before – an entirely new way of investing in established businesses and a new form of asset-backed crowdfunding.
“What drew myself and my colleagues at Equal Experts to partner with Investx was Peter’s exceptional vision and his desire to build a platform that has the potential to transform the investment industry. Investx is a great use-case for blockchain as smart contracts are integral to the platform – for instance, the security tokens will automatically pay out dividends on a preprogrammed basis.
“For Equal Experts, it’s still early days for blockchain projects, but we expect many more to follow Investx as the benefits of the technology begin to become fully realised.”
Peter Edgar, CEO of Investx said:
“We’re proud that Equal Experts chose to partner with us and that Dave joins us as CTO and co-founder. Equal Experts has an exceptional track record of delivering successful, large-scale projects to blue-chip clients and Dave’s team has already worked hard to put the foundations of our platform in place.
“Investx has built its business on supporting established SMEs in securing capital investment, and this platform which Equal Experts is helping us to develop means more people will be able to access this type of investment opportunity.”
