Tap’s mission is to make private markets work for everyone.
Unleashing the true potential of private markets.
Today’s biggest problems require builders with huge visions of the future. Whether it's developing solar farms or colonizing the solar system, these projects require financing of a similarly grand scale.
Unfortunately, public markets are held back by short-termism, distracting volatility, and regulatory red tape.
Private markets have grown to more than $13 trillion dollars to fill the gap.
By keeping information and prices controlled, private markets give builders the time and focus they need to tackle their ambitious projects.
We embrace what makes the private markets great: privacy. And we are finally adding the part they have been missing: a marketplace.
Like our customers, we also have a big vision for the future. Our mission is to make markets work for builders, investors, and, ultimately, everyone.
Our team combines the best from private markets and tech.
