The SheeldMarket team at their office in Paris
Before SheeldMarket existed, three of our founders – Oliver (CEO), Arnaud (CTO), and Simon (COO) – studied together at Supaero, the top French aerospace engineering school, and then UC Berkeley.
After identifying a gap in the early stage global cryptocurrency market, SheeldMarket soon followed as a fully-fledged cryptocurrency trading business. Jacques Lolieux, a renowned trader with 25+ years of experience, joined quickly after as the final member of the founding team.
Since the company’s founding in 2019, our team has made rapid advances in rolling out cryptocurrency trading services to a wide range of customers. SheeldMarket’s best-in-class algorithm is already trusted by dozens of institutional investors to optimise their investments.
Following a $1m seed round in 2020, we have raised $10m in funding from established investors including Atomico, DraperDragon, and Axeleo. This investment will enable us to continue scaling our prime broker services, as well as pushing into new product areas that will fully realise the potential of cryptocurrency trading.
Our long term vision is to make financial services more accessible and efficient for every business, from SMEs to major funds. We believe that decentralized finance will be the foundation that allows us to provide cheaper services like loans or treasury placement on top of trading services.
