About Forge Global

Forge Global (NYSE: FRGE) is a marketplace that gives private investors access and exposure to top pre-IPO companies. It also allows employees of growing startups to get cash for a portion of their shares without having to wait years to take advantage of their company's growth and success. The company has created a cross between a derivative contract and a collateralized loan. The result is a contract that effectively allows an investor to purchase the rights to the economic upside of a share, without any of the complications of adding additional shareholders to the cap table.
