Coffee with Samso Episode 81 with David Pillinger, Managing Director of VCEX is all about creating an efficient marketplace for the whole Equity Capital sector.
A couple of weeks ago, David Pillinger contacted me to talk about an "interesting platform" related to marketing. In our following discussions after that first contact, I have learnt that this is indeed an interesting platform.
VCEX or Venture Capital Exchange is a simple platform that uses technology to make transactions and compliance simpler and cheaper. In the world of Venture Capital or Start-ups, the one thing that does not happen frequently is the transaction of shares which also means that laborious maintenance of compliance is not required.
Unfortunately, the cost of compliance today, is pretty much standard. When you look at VCEX, the main use of VCEX is that it will reduce all the compliance costs while being totally compliant with the requirements of ASIC (Australian Securities & Investments Commission).
As David shares with us, there are plans now to allow incorporate equities that are listed on the ASX (Australian Stock Exchange) into the platform. This will eventually create a wholesome ecosystem that will bring in buyers and sellers from both the private and public domains.
Investors can find out more and create a freemium log in by following the link VCEX:VEX where you can gain access to the VCEX share offer and create an investor profile, review the Information Memorandum and presentations and invest in off-market offerings on VCEX.
About David Pillinger
David Pillinger has been a Company Director from the very early age of 21 since 1989 with 5 surf store franchises as his first endeavour. Self-funded and grown from hard graft, he is familiar with all aspects of a vertically integrated business structure.
After a decade of surf industry retail and manufacturing knowledge, David turned his hand to his other passion in life - property development and sales. This created Property Gallery and it has grown year on year since its creation in 2001 and is now managing well over 3,000 properties from WAs North West to Perth’s Southern corridor .
This has not stopped David from combining his passion of surfing and property by designing and building a Boutique Resort Hotel called The Dipan in Seminyak, Bali which he also still maintains significant equity today.
The process of developing and creating income has always required a large amount of software and online marketing. Pillinger realised this as a core attribute to how his staff was evolving in all 3 industries - Retail, Construction / Manufacturing and Management .
¨There is a point in time where you step back and review which direction you are going and answer the questions of why am I going in this direction and what direction is the world going in.¨
The answer was Automation, and with a lot of self-service due to compliance and risk, it is safer to provide a self-service function for all people in most industries.
In 2018, Safesoft Pty Ltd was born. It was a new business to take all of the knowledge Pillinger had gathered as an entrepreneur to create a way of making business function better from creation through to ongoing management.
VCEX (Venture Capital Exchange) is the first release of many software solutions that utilise the Safesoft LTD core code and single source management logic.The VCEX Market Place manages and qualifies investors - AFSL Brokers and existing shareholders access through the one cloud-based single source registry exchange.
The clue to the future in the dialogue above is simple and common amongst all people who strive to have financial independence. Safesoft has a product called Safekey which accesses all of your investments in one place, securely managing your shares in companies and property management requirements.
David Pillinger is currently 52 years old at the time of publishing this article and interview, Safesoft LTD is 3 years old and for a software company that may be young, but as David puts it, for an adult it is about the right age to embark on a software solution that encompasses such a diverse solution and ability. Most people struggle to put time into their investments and this product will really connect investors with their assets and advisors and ultimately companies, that they too can invest in from simple direct investments to interest bearing convertible notes.
Safesoft opens up the possibilities of connecting people in a more efficient way in a totally integrated process that is far more efficient than what is currently available .
