ABOUT US

Decentralized operating system
for the financial supply chain.

Centrifuge is an open, decentralized operating system to connect the global financial supply chain. It allows any business, no matter how big, to transact on a global network while maintaining ownership of their data, including their validated company details, their reputation, business relationships, and subsequent transactions.

Our team has built multiple companies over the last 18 years and we still enjoy working together. In the past, we created software that transacts billions of dollars each day and is used by 97 out of the Fortune 100. With the help of our world-class investors, advisors, partners, and team we started Centrifuge to go on building real software, solving real business problems.
