Key steps for tokenizeing an asset on our platform
How it Works
'Smart Sherpas' STO Platform and Marketplace.
‘Smart Sherpas’ STO platform and a marketplace is where issuers, advisors, and investors effectively collaborate. The platform enables businesses to follow a simple step-by-step process of i) digitizing assets on a public ledger, ii) securitization of the fractional ownership rights to the economic benefits of an asset, and iii) offering it to the investors in the form of a regulatory compliant Security Token Offering (STO) to raise capital. Finally, the platform facilitates regulatory-compliant transactions on the secondary market post-STO.
A 360°-degree Solution
With STO management tools such as digital signatures, automated compliance, investor accreditation verification, full integration with KYC/AML and custodian service providers, – the investor onboarding process on the platform runs smoothly and seamlessly.
Examples include significant cost reduction and instantaneous voting by equity/debt token holders during corporate event referendums or instant dividend distributions directly to millions of investors’ wallets, – all at a fraction of the cost and bypassing traditional intermediaries.

Every industry has its own competitive set and each company has its own story. While we understand that with every new client and every new business case there is a unique set of customized requirements, Smart Sherpas Advisory has developed a standardized process to prepare a client for a successful STO offering. Our process includes the following 6 steps.
Interviews and exploratory discussions with the client’s management team about the offering size and structure. Understanding the client’s needs and objectives. Consolidation and aggregation of findings. Definition of project requirements and scope of work.
Analysis of findings. Detailed business, financial & legal due diligence, evaluation of market conditions. Entity and beneficiary KYC/AML clearance. Valuation & pricing discussions with the client. Gauging preliminary investor interest to subscribe to the offering.
A collaboration of the client’s team with ‘Smart Sherpas’ advisors to build strategy and prepare the offering, including the development of project roadmap, timeline and costing for legal, technology and marketing stages of the offering.
Preparation of legal documentation and filing with the regulator(s). Drafting Investor Prospectus or Private Placement Memorandum as mandated by the regulatory framework in applicable jurisdiction(s).
Work with ‘Smart Sherpas’ technology advisors to identify technical parameters for the token emission based on the business requirements of the offering. Develop custom smart contracts, issue tokens, test and deploy on the blockchain in preparation for an STO.
Develop a roadshow presentation with key marketing points of the offering, launch marketing campaign to support the offering via general solicitation in the media and industry events or targeted presentations and to the list of accredited & institutional investors.
