MarkITx is a transparent B2B marketplace to buy, sell & trade used IT equipment.

Meet MarkITx, the ‘New York Stock Exchange of IT’

1 Comment

Used computer equipment — such as servers, switches and hard drives used by corporations and governments — is a commodity, so why not trade it like one?

That is the mantra of Frank Muscarello, 42, founder and CEO of MarkITx, an online exchange for enterprise IT hardware. MarkITx connects buyers and sellers, and inspects and refurbishes the equipment through one of its certified partners.

“We’re building a central clearing firm, right in the backyard of some of the largest clearing firms and trading firms in the world,” Mr. Muscarello said. “We like to say we’re the New York Stock Exchange of IT, where the only thing that matters in a marketplace is liquidity.”

He launched the company in April 2012 and now has $80 million in inventory on the site. After starting at incubator 1871, MarkITx moved out and recently raised $2.2 million in capital on top of the $1.1 million raised at the end of last year.
