Athena Blockchain Partners with Broker-Dealer

Athena Blockchain has struck a deal with 303 Alternatives LLC, a FINRA regulated broker-dealer.

With offices in Chicago, Miami, and Santa Monica, Athena Blockchain provides investment banking, structuring, and advisory services to issuers, sponsors, and promoters of securities by leveraging its deep legal, compliance, technical, and financial experience to structure offerings and provide access to capital markets. Now, Athena Blockchain will expand its capabilities and provide compliant investment banking and structuring to the marketing and placement of tokenized investment products by operating under the oversight of the SEC and FINRA.

With the addition, Athena Blockchain’s ranks have grown to over 20 employees, including investment bankers and advisors hailing from established investment banks (including UBS, Nomura Bank, and Goldman Sachs), and renowned capital markets firms (including Cantor Fitzgerald, Magnetar Capital, Chicago Trading Company, and Greenhill). Athena brings an unparalleled combination of crypto expertise and capital markets experience, allowing issuers of tokenized securities and traditional investment products compliant access to capital.

“With the addition of 303, Athena can help clients achieve their financial goals by issuing private and public securities in both tokenized and traditional formats,” said Founder & CEO Eric Gravengaard. “Coupling 303 Alternatives’ investment banking experience with Athena’s considerable advisory and marketing capabilities, enables us to provide an unbeatable combination of experience, knowledge, and access to capital markets for securities issuers.”

Michael Savini, Managing Principal and President of 303, said “joining forces with Athena is exciting for us and our clients. Our existing clients will now have unparalleled access to the cryptocurrency and digital assets markets. We are excited about the future and the additional services we can now provide.”
