KoreConX

About KoreConX

KoreConX was launched by co-founders Oscar Jofre and Jason Futko. The two began KoreConX after Jofre and Futko became involved with the creators of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act — the ultimate catalyst to democratize investments and define how companies access capital worldwide.

Jofre and Futko spent years nurturing and assisting a variety of businesses to raise money, grow, list on stock exchanges, restructure and practice good governance. Realizing the private capital markets were fragmented and seeing new laws such as the JOBS Act, spurred the need for an infrastructure solution.

A secure, all-in-one platform to streamline global private company capital markets. The goal, to give small- to medium-sized enterprises (SME) a single location to manage all of their corporate records, funding, investors and investment brokers so they could efficiently take advantage of innovative new capital-raising opportunities.

KoreConX eliminates organizational problems because it is built upon the philosophy that corporate information, financial documents and company knowledge can be more efficiently contributed, managed and distributed to all parties involved with corporate financial matters.

KoreConX combines the ability to manage corporate and financial records, deal room and transaction support, board management activities, stakeholder reporting and a communications platform in a single, easy-to-use interface that expedites deal preparations, decision making and investment management. All aspects are managed in a secure, auditable yet accessible platform that provides oversight and control to ensure all fiduciary responsibilities are completed and compliant.

Whether it’s raising equity/debt capital, running board meetings or trying to streamline shareholder communications, KoreConX’s all-in-one platform provides security, efficiency and success.
