Glory and Money

In 1569, cartographer Gerardus Mercator changed global trade forever by producing the first map of the world. He developed a way for merchants to add routes to an existing map—creating a wealth of opportunities.

Inspired by Gerardus, our mission is to create the framework that aligns the interests of our data-driven community to create a scalable platform for data collaboration. Instead of collecting and rebuilding data within each organization, business unit, and desk, the Marcetor team identified the opportunity to create a Capital Market Data Community to pool resources and stop waste.

Marcetor uses new technologies to create a truly open and distributed platform directly servicing the individual needs within corporations on a peer-to-peer and frictionless basis.

We align the incentives of all participants to responsibly deliver measurable quality and efficiencies.

GERARDUS MERCATOR

16th-century German-Flemish cartographer, geographer and cosmographer. He was renowned for creating the 1569 world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing (rhumb lines) as straight lines—an innovation that is still employed in nautical charts.
