KICK-STARTING A THOUSAND IDEAS
Many crazy but great startup ideas struggle to get funding – investors see them too risky or illiquid. However, we believe that the future winners of networked products and ecosystems can be funded with digital tokens besides VCs.
Zipper is the world’s first investment platform which provides investors and projects a safe and liquid way to fund and scale even the maddest and most ambitious token projects, all the way from pre-token funding and token launch to owning the market.

SAFE MILESTONES- BASED INVESTMENTS
Investors can safely invest into a wide variety of projects and make fast investment decisions, as investments are released to projects only after they reach defined milestones.
LIQUID PRIORITY LANE
Zipper platform’s investors have exclusive access to projects’ tokens among the first, with pre-agreed terms. Investors can then sell their tokens at any time after the token is launched and listed in token marketplaces.
EMPOWERING PROJECT'S NETWORK
Projects can get funding in ETH and ZIP tokens already at idea stage. Project can then turn them into cash or share to project’s network as incentives for helping them to reach milestones and spread the word, even before project has its own token with value. Projects will also get tools and support to launch their own token easily and safely.
POWERED BY ZIP TOKEN
Zipper platform is fuelled by ZIP, the platform’s native usage token which is planned to be launched in Q3 2017. ZIP ensures that there’s enough support and funding for both the platform and projects.
Market demand for ZIP increases hand in hand with the projects funded through the platform:
A small amount of ZIP is required to make investments and other actions through the platform.
An independent Startup Trust holds majority of ZIPs, uses them to co-invest to projects, and can buy back ZIPs from the market with its profit.

FROM THE JOLLA AND SAILFISH OS TEAM
We know how hard it is to build a technology startup and fight against the big guys. At Jolla, we developed the open Sailfish OS, took it head to head against Android, and survived. Now we want to use our experience and networks to help the next big things take off.
