About the Company

Wrapt™ ( https://www.wrapt.space ) is an exciting new business based in the heart of silicon valley, US. The founding team has spent the past year developing the business mode, go to market strategy and UX/UI for a platform that is now ready for our first key hire to develop.

Wrapt™ is a content provenance platform made for its creator community where members can prove ownership while protecting, monetizing and safely distributing their creative assets anywhere online.

For too long now Creators have struggled to determine proof of ownership in their original works.

The Wrapt™ Platform audits every use of the asset using C2PA open standards to help Creators prove they created and own the work.

Once a Creator's asset is uploaded and distributed online, the ability to protect that asset from theft and misrepresentation is lost.

The Wrapt™ Platform protects a Creator's original asset for the lifetime of that asset, regardless of how it shared, published or distributed online.

The Wrapt™ Platform helps Creator Members monetize their hard work wherever their assets are used. Creators decide who can use their assets and how they will be paid.
