Bnktothefuture, online investment platform and our long term partner, planned to expand it’s offering by providing an innovative alternative trading system for pre-IPO secondary offerings. Their goal was to target the market niche and give individual investors access to deals available only to private venture capital institutions.

On the other hand, factors such as scalability and time to market were crucial too.


Given the requirements and existing constraints, the best architecture choice was to use Rails Engine as a way to go with the solution. It allowed a team to kickstart easily, leverage an existing platform capabilities without sacrificing performance. Compliance procedures were introduced into the development pipeline in order to satisfy regulatory requirements.


The team released the beta version of secondary market after 4 months of development.
