There’s nothing better than Texas in March. While thousands of music lovers flock to Austin for SXSW, we’ll be heading south to participate in the 23rd Annual SXSW Innovation Awards as a finalist in the “New Economy” category. As one of the most notable and competitive awards competitions in the world, even being named one of five finalists is an accomplishment worth celebrating. But, as a true innovator in the FinTech space, we are “in it to win it” and look forward to presenting our leading secondary trading platform for digital securities to attendees and judges.
The 23rd annual SXSW Innovation Awards recognize the most exciting tech developments in the connected world. Innovators and creators from around the world enter to vie for top honors in this unique, long-running SXSW competition. Five Finalists in each of the 13 categories are selected to come to SXSW this March to demonstrate their projects for SXSW attendees and the Innovation Awards Finalist Judges at the SXSW Innovation Awards Finalist Showcase on Saturday, March 14. The winners will be announced during the Innovation Awards Ceremony on the evening of Monday, March 16.
During the SXSW Innovation Awards Finalist Showcase, the team at Openfinance will present our first-to-market platform for the secondary market trading of digital securities. Through this service, we have enabled efficient, transparent, and regulated trading to improve the liquidity of private and public, non-listed securities. Generally overlooked in favor of a standard equity/bond portfolio, alternative assets have delivered massive growth and outsized returns in a rapidly changing landscape of investment products. This dynamic makes allocations to alternatives a potentially critical component of every investors’ strategy. Openfinance is creating a path for all investors to access these wealth creation opportunities.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to attend and look forward to highlighting our successes and sharing our mission to open new doors to a universe of investments and unlock value in the historically illiquid alternative asset market.
