Steve Cinelli
Steve has consistently applied his profound knowledge of corporate finance, banking and capital markets to innovation, in particular, distributed capital formation via applied technology. In co-founding OffRoad Capital in 1999, Steve was the first to create a web-based platform to aggregate global accredited investors in a private securities market system, well before the term crowdfunding was coined. And in assessing areas of optimizing capital, Steve conceived of PRIMARQ to disrupt the ninety-year old practice of excessively leveraged housing finance within the USA and abroad, by bringing fresh equity funds efficiently into a multi-trillion dollar market. He is an active participant in the crowd-capital movement through participating on crowdfunding national boards, in addition to writing and speaking on next generation finance.
