About Us

Roots Technology is disrupting traditional equity management tools and solving universal pain points with Sprout, a comprehensive suite of stakeholder management software-as-a-service (SaaS).  Sprout enables companies to efficiently manage cap tables, employee stock options and shareholders as a single source of truth, saving time and money.

Roots was founded by an ex-Uber Asia business executive and a China product and engineering leader with a combined 35-years of global startup experience launching companies at scale and cultivating large teams.  We were founded in 2019 in Hong Kong and co-located in Beijing.  We recently raised our first external round of financing from a group of influential, early-stage investors.
