The equiteam
changing finance for good





Our story

While working at a crowdfunding platform, founder Christian Gabriel noticed a problem. Companies were structuring equity in messy spreadsheets, which had huge consequences for small shareholders and employees. Instead of working to the advantage of these crowdfunded businesses, equity was a thorn in their side.

So, Christian created Capdesk. Mikkel Boje and Martin Damhus joined the team as Co-Founders in 2015. Together, they transformed the platform from a smart alternative to spreadsheets into a powerful tool to help every private company make the most of its equity.

Our vision

We’re on a mission to change finance for good, and doing that takes more than technology. Our vision is of a future where equity is a core component of the employee experience in unlisted companies.

We envision equity better utilised by employers and better understood by workers. Not just as a deal-sweetener for new hires, but used to align, incentivise and reward employees throughout their careers. We envision employees empowered to access the wealth they helped to create at a time that suits them, and with our native secondaries feature, there is no more waiting for an IPO or a sale to ‘cash out’ on your shares.
