To empower every team globally with equity
Ledgy was founded in 2017 by Yoko Spirig, Ben Brandt and Timo Horstschaefer, who met while studying physics together at ETH Zürich.
Back in 2017, more companies in Europe were setting up equity plans to incentivise team members. Yoko, Ben and Timo saw that despite good intentions, companies were struggling to make the most out of equity. Equity plans were confusing and complex to manage, and people didn’t understand what their ownership stakes really meant.
Yoko, Ben and Timo started Ledgy to solve these problems and make equity work for companies and people.
Equity has an incredible power to align teams behind a common goal. But for founders and teams, getting equity working can feel like moving mountains.
Today, Ledgy automates equity processes for thousands of companies around the world, helping teams stay compliant, deliver value, and bring everyone together around a single mission.
We’re a team of 70 people serving customers globally from offices in Zürich, London and Berlin. To support our growth, we’ve partnered with incredible investors including Sequoia Capital and New Enterprise Associates.
To create a world where entrepreneurship drives positive change
When equity really works for companies, the whole team can come together around a common goal. By making equity work for companies, we’re going to help foster cultures of entrepreneurship and drive positive change in the world. Interested in helping us on our journey?

“Equity ownership is not only important for aligning incentives between founders and investors, but crucially it drives alignment across the entire organisation. CFOs, Heads of People and law firms love that Ledgy integrates with other HR systems and third parties involved in managing equity, creating a single point of truth.”
“From the moment we were introduced to Ledgy, we could see that this was something wefox would need if we were going to build a sustainable company where everyone has a fair share of our success. The ease of use for our compensation and benefits team, as well as senior stakeholders, massively reduces the time we spend on equity in a week."
