Company Overview:

Masterworks is a fintech platform that allows anyone to invest in shares of SEC-registered blue-chip paintings by names like Banksy, Monet, and Picasso. So far, we have raised over $500M across 100+ paintings from more than 500,000 users. This year, we expect to buy more than $1 billion in art, making us the largest buyer in the art market.

The business has more than 180 employees, and has been featured in major media publications such as The NY Times, CNBC, CNN, WSJ, and more. After becoming profitable in early 2020, just three years after being founded, Masterworks raised $110M in its Series A round with a valuation of over $1 billion.
