Today, Forge is celebrating a milestone. Our public listing on the New York Stock Exchange. It's an exciting day for all those dedicated people who helped us get here. And it's a moment we envisioned when we set out to create an accessible, liquid and transparent private market for all. This step is an important part of our journey.
This step is a signal that the private market is evolving into that market that we originally envisioned. The future private market was one in which anyone from private company shareholders to company founders and executives, individual accredited and institutional investors could easily participate in trading private companies shares, or companies could easily run and manage liquidity programs for employees and where private market data informed more intelligent decision making where money could easily move in and out of private assets.
Liquid, transparent, accessible. That was the future with Forge. That future has already started. We've built the marketplace, created the infrastructure, forged the partnerships. We’re at the center of a private marketing ecosystem that will continue to grow and scale. We're excited today about continuing our journey so more people can access private market value creation and participate with us. Thank you for being a part of this journey and welcome to the private market future!
