We’re Hedgehog. A team of entrepreneurs with investment expertise in both public and private markets. We’ve worked in institutional finance for decades and know what world-class investments look like. We also know these investments are typically out of reach for individuals — which sucks. So, with the help of a bunch of nerds, we’re creating a platform for fractional investing designed for the digital era.
Financial expertise + Nerds = Hedgehog
Our mission is simple: to make it possible for eligible individual investors to access the benefits of investing in real-world assets of a size and quality that would normally be out of reach.
Enabled by blockchain technology, we make investments available to individual investors using tokenization. Our digital tokens, underpinned by blockchain-based smart contracts, are backed by income generated, directly or indirectly, by real-world assets. The technology helps us remove barriers to entry and enables eligible individuals to have more control over the investments they own.
We partner only with proven asset owners and always align your co-investment capital with theirs, positioning you to reap the benefits of investing in assets of a size and quality that would normally be out of reach.

Previously I've worked within the global marketing teams of apps like Trainline and BlaBlaCar and I loved working together with product designers and engineers. I believe branding can work like a glue for both the actual product offering, as well as the internal culture of a company. And the best part is that it never stops evolving.
