Growth Capital on the Blockchain. The CORL token creates a mutually beneficial ecosystem for startups, small businesses and investors.
Corl Financial Technologies Inc. (Corl) is launching the Corl Token (CRL). CRL is the world’s first token to represent equity ownership in a company that provides revenue-sharing financing to high-potential early-revenue companies. Unlike traditional tokens on the market, CRL is based on a profit-sharing model, whereby investors receive a continuous stream of quarterly dividends in the form of Ether (ETH), based on future earnings of Corl.
Investing in early-stage companies is becoming more popular than ever; and with operating costs at an all-time low, easy access to global markets, and the emergence of new technologies coupled with a lack of innovation among incumbents, the number of small fast-growing companies is higher than ever before. With the influx of these fast-growing companies, the need for adequate funding is essential to fuel expansion and innovation. However, financing has failed to keep up to the innovation curve. The funding market today is centralized, fragmented, inaccessible to retail investors, and lacks the sufficient capital needed to support the growth of the tech ecosystem. Worldwide, this had led to an early-growth capital gap of over a $100 billion, which continues to grow each year. To resolve this capital gap, investors and entrepreneurs are reconsidering the way that capital is raised today, which is evidenced from the over $3 billion raised during Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) in 2017.
Companies operating with less than 20 employees represent 98%1 of the total funding market, and yet have the most challenge with raising capital. Traditionally, investments in companies are structured via equity through Venture Capitalists (VCs) and Angels, or for later-stage companies, via a debt instrument offered through Banks. However, these options are inadequate for both entrepreneurs and investors because of their long fundraising timeframes, lofty eligibility criteria, inflated cost of capital, misalignment of investor-entrepreneur incentives, lack of investor liquidity, dilution of founder influence and control, high capital hurdles, long-term commitments, unstable investment pipeline or deal flow to manage diversification, and restrictive regulatory requirements.
