Today, with a $5 trillion shortfall in commercial loans and receivables financing, a new source of capital is needed to propel the world’s economy forward. Without liquidity, the businesses of APAC and LATAM that power the global economy are unable to respond to the demand of their global buyers, or to invest in their futures. With no common ledger for bills of exchange, no common risk assessment protocols, and no common marketplace for financiers to provide funding, the global economy hasn’t the system it needs to thrive.
With over $40T in receivables in circulation on any given day, there exists enough value to power the economy several times over. By unlocking this value and facilitating commercial loans, we can unleash the potential of the world’s businesses to power the economy and to own their own futures.
That’s exactly what Hamsa has set out to do. Led by a renowned Silicon Valley Webby-winning entrepreneur and supported by the technology leader behind AliExpress and AMEX China, Hamsa is reinventing global finance. By combining the best of the existing financial system with blockchain technology we’re democratizing access to finance and empowering the world’s SMEs.
With offices in San Francisco, Shanghai and Sao Paulo, we are building a global community of like-minded developers. We invite you to join our team to help unite the world through enlightened trade.
