Our mission at Slash is to help millions of professional resellers — solo entrepreneurs who buy and sell exclusive items for a living — make more money and take back their time. Still in beta, thousands of sellers use our capital and virtual cards to buy millions of dollars worth of profitable inventory every month.

It's a very unique time to join us. We proved a huge demand for what we're building (potential users badger us for access every day, and actual users are regularly offered hundreds of dollars for their access codes), and it’s early enough that you’ll have a huge impact and get a big part of the upside.

Slash is backed by NEA, Stanford University, and the founders of Tinder and Plaid.
