KICK-STARTING A THOUSAND IDEAS
Many crazy but great startup ideas struggle to get funding or scale. Investors see early stage startups too risky, and it’s more difficult than ever to stand out in the noisy market.
Zipper is the world’s first investment platform which provides investors and startups a safe and liquid way to fund and scale even the maddest and most ambitious projects, all the way from seed funding to owning the market.

SAFE MILESTONE-BASED INVESTMENTS
Investors can safely invest into a wide variety of startups and make fast investment decisions, as investments are controlled by Ethereum smart contracts and released to startups only after they reach defined milestones.
LIQUID PRIORITY LANE
Zipper platform’s investors have exclusive access to startups among the first, with pre-agreed terms. Investors can then sell their investments at any time, as the startup’s equity or product is tokenized.
EMPOWERING STARTUP'S NETWORK
Alongside funding, each startup in Zipper platform receives also ZIP tokens. Startup can then share these tokens to its network as incentives for helping it to reach milestones and spread the word.
POWERED BY ZIP TOKEN
Zipper platform is fuelled by ZIP, the platform’s usage token which is planned to be launched in Q3 2017. ZIP ensures that every startup has an easy way to incentivise their network, even if the startup doesn’t have its own token. The more startups in the platform, the more ZIP tokens are shared and traded.

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.
