By: Equidate, Inc.
Equidate, Inc. of San Francisco, Calif., is a secondary marketplace for investors seeking to invest in pre-IPO companies and employees seeking to monetize their private stock.
“Jeff’s understanding of stock market development will be invaluable to Equidate,” according to CEO Sohail Prasad. “He has a strong record of identifying new opportunities for company growth and for helping companies to succeed.”
“Equidate offers a safe, straightforward platform for entrepreneurs and employees to monetize value they have created,” Singer said, “and it creates an opportunity for investors to potentially capture outsized returns on brand-name pre-IPO companies. At a time when financial markets are no longer serving the needs of the business and investing community, the Equidate platform is what a market should be.”
As CEO of DIFC, he broke growth records and solidified DIFC as the top destination for financial services companies in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. As CEO of NASDAQ Dubai, he reversed an underperforming business and orchestrated a complex merger between NASDAQ Dubai and the Dubai Financial Market (DFM).
He was previously Senior Vice President and Head of International Business at NASDAQ in New York City, where he was responsible for NASDAQ’s global business development. He joined NASDAQ from 4R Systems, Wayne, Penn., where he was President and CEO.
He has an MBA from Harvard Business School and a bachelor’s degree in international finance from Brigham Young University.
