2022 Advanced Booster Organizations
Kimby is a platform that provides worldwide investors access to investments in alternative assets. Founded in 2021, Kimby gives investors (individuals and entities) access to investments that were previously off-limits for the average investors.
The founder was frustrated that many unique alternatives were typically only available to the ultra-wealthy and way out of reach to accredited investors. So, in turn, the founder leveraged the growing fintech market and the investor-increasing demand for alternatives by developing a platform to give more people access to restricted alternative assets. Kimby provides a solution by lowing barriers to entry by securitizing the asset, turning it into stock, and leveraging technology to put investors first.
Many private securities marketplaces have focused on real estate, crypto, gaming, farmland, and art, but there is still a vacant niche for collectibles like luxury and precious gemstones. Kimby plans to start with the vacant niche but with a strategic vision of expanding into a one-stop-shop private market aggregator and an investment platform as a service for challenger banks.
Kimby's key team works internationally between the US, London, and Eastern Europe. Today, the team consists of more than eight passionate talents working toward Kimby's one goal: to change the way people invest for the better.
Headquartered in Delaware, USA and London, UK and founded in October 2021. Headcount 8. $400K Pre-Seed raised to date (with more pre-committed from the same investors). Raising Seed funding September - October 2022.
