About Flow

Founded in 2018, Flow has a mission to empower thought by building the infrastructure for private markets. Flow is solving the complexity of fund infrastructure, through connecting information across investors, providers, investments and systems. Powered by dynamic tools and human centric interfaces, Flow’s cross platform SaaS technology networks and adapts to the myriad of ways funds operate to optimize productivity and increase time invested into making decisions.

The private markets are made up of private networks. Funds are the fulcrum point of these networks and the constellation of investors, companies and service providers connect to bring the fund strategy to life. Today, these funds run largely on tedious paperwork, fragmented data and highly manual processes. Flow is uniquely positioned to modernize these networks by being an open platform to create efficient flows across funds. In doing so, Flow is removing the constraints in today’s private markets and further empowering the ideas that shape the economy.
