R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 members and partners across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, our open-source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version for enterprise usage.
Our global team of over 190 professionals in 13 countries is supported by over 2,000 technology, financial, and legal experts drawn from our global member base.
Our Corda platform is already being used in industries from financial services to healthcare, shipping, insurance and more. It records, manages, executes institutions’ financial agreements in perfect synchrony with their peers, creating a world of frictionless commerce.

“We envision a future where legal agreements such as business contracts are recorded and automatically managed without error, where anybody can transact seamlessly for any contractual purpose without friction. We believe markets will move towards models where parties to contracts collaborate to maintain accurate, shared records rather than maintaining their own independent and inconsistent systems which require extensive reconciliation processes to ensure consistency. Duplicates, reconciliations, failed matches and breaks will be things of the past.” – Richard Gendal Brown, R3, CTO
