Former Charles Schwab Technology Executive Joins Firm

SharesPost,
Inc.
, a leading liquidity provider to the Private Technology Growth
asset class, today announced that Nick Grabowski, a technology executive
with 19 years of experience working with both start-ups and Fortune 500
financial services firms, has been named Chief Technology Officer.

Grabowski has extensive experience in strategy development, system
design and project management. He has led teams of application and
systems architects, designers and engineers in building enterprise-class
financial services platforms. Most recently, he was Vice President of
Application Architecture and R&D at Charles Schwab & Co. Earlier in his
career, he held senior technology positions at Yola and Ebates.

"Nick is a strategic and experienced technologist who has been very
successful in developing trading systems, client facing interfaces and
brokerage account platforms," said SharesPost Founder and CEO, Greg
Brogger
. "His mission will be to continue to improve our platform's
existing capabilities and develop new ones related to our blockchain
securities initiatives."

Grabowski will focus on integrating crypto currency and blockchain
securities into the SharesPost platform. By bringing secondary trading
and custody of traditional "unicorn" stock and digital securities
together in a SharesPost Private Brokerage Account, SharesPost will
enable investors with easy access to the entire spectrum of private
growth companies – from start-ups conducting their ICO to late-stage,
multi-billion dollar companies on the eve of their IPO. Grabowski will
also be responsible for connecting client holdings with SharesPost's
data and research, so that SharesPost's clients have the information
they need to make the best possible investment decisions.

Grabowski, who joins the firm's executive management team, will also
work closely with SharesPost's Noah Thorp, Lead Blockchain Architect, to
build GLASS
– a global liquidity and compliant settlement network of crypto
exchanges.

Grabowski's appointment follows the successful completion of the
company's $15 million Series
C round
in June. The Series C will help build out SharesPost's
Alternative Trading System (ATS) for private company shares and digital
security tokens, and fund the company's further expansion into Asia. In
May, SharesPost
announced
it had successfully amended its Form ATS to permit
blockchain securities and tokens to be traded on its platform.
