Success Stories


Founded in 2011, Boston Illiquid Security Offerings Network, BISON, focuses on the information asymmetry, lack of transparency and insufficient data sourcing prevalent in the private markets. They took the challenge to leverage technology and other resources to overcome these hurdles by developing fully transparent datasets to support stakeholders in the private markets.

BISON has their offices in Boston (HQ) and Gothenburg, Sweden.
