About Sprout

Sprout is a trusted stakeholder management software-as-a-service that helps companies better manage their equity, employee share options and digital assets.  The founders of Sprout are experienced startup veterans who noticed both service and knowledge gaps in how we manage this. Our mission is to create transparency and democratize economic empowerment and stakeholder management for everyone. We teach people how to turn equity and tokens into the most powerful stakeholder engagement tool. 

Roots was founded by Andy Lee, an ex-Uber APAC senior executive, and Tony Sun, a China product and engineering leader, who both have a combined 40-years of experience launching organizations and growing teams to scale. We were founded in 2019 and we are backed by a group of prominent early-stage investors.
