Everyone has the freedom
to create value
Founders Johannes Laub and Jamal El Mallouki have known each other since childhood. They were convinced that decentralised forms of financing are an alternative to bank loans: a civic and at the same time entrepreneurial investment of money. The two friends bundle their knowledge they have gained in different entrepreneurial pursuits into a software solution. In 2015, the pivot follows and with it the launch of CrowdDesk. The goal: to provide companies with easy access to the private capital market. In 2021, CrowdDesk becomes portagon and by now portagon counts more than 280 customers – yet our story is just about to begin.
