SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Caplight today announced the release of Caplight Data, a tool for tracking venture-backed private company stock prices, valuations, and trading activity.

Lack of visibility into private company stock prices prevents many investors from participating in the private secondary market. Caplight Data offers a solution by providing users with access to a large and growing dataset of over 10,000 private company transactional data points, representing over $170B of volume, as well as over 20,000 investment fund marks of private company stock prices. Pricing information is currently available for 370 late-stage private companies.

Caplight’s MarketPrice evaluated pricing algorithm is a feature of Caplight Data and provides near real-time tracking of private company stock prices. MarketPrice has demonstrated high accuracy at predicting the price points of future secondary-market trades and can be used to track a portfolio of private company stock prices over time.

Caplight was founded in 2021 and has raised $10 million from notable FinTech investors including Better Tomorrow Ventures, Fin Capital, Deutsche Börse, Susquehanna Private Equity Investments, LLLP, and Clocktower Ventures.
