Saphyre founders named to Seton Hall University Entrepreneur Hall of Fame

Seton Hall University has announced Gabino Roche Jr. and Stephen Roche have receive the 2023 Entrepreneur Hall of Fame Awards for their outstanding contribution to the fintech industry through Saphyre, a company revolutionizing the way data and information is managed in pre-trade, simplifying post-trade.

Gabino Roche Jr. and Stephen Roche co-founded Saphyre in 2017, with a vision to simplify the complex and fragmented world of data and processes in the pre-trade space of finance.

The company’s platform offers a revolutionary approach to data management, enabling firms to seamlessly communicate through automated workflows, and share “Ready-to-Trade” statuses in real-time.

Their innovation has been adopted by some of the largest financial institutions in the industry, many of which have issued joint public news releases with the growing fintech. Saphyre consistently has been recognized through the finance industry for its achievements.

The groundbreaking work of the Roches has earned them induction into the Seton Hall University Entrepreneur Hall of Fame, which took place March 29 on the Seton Hall University campus in South Orange.

“We are excited to be honored for our work in the finance space,” Gabino Roche said. “While our innovative approach to pre-trade data management has been a game-changer, we extend the benefits by simplifying post-trade processes. We are proud to be recognized by Seton Hall and be part of their Hall of Fame.”

The Entrepreneur Hall of Fame Awards is an annual event that recognizes entrepreneurs who have made significant contributions to their respective fields. The event brings together industry leaders, alumni and students to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation.
