company information

"The stock market is the biggest driver for prosperity in history. But the truth is, what is supposed to be the public markets are the markets for the few. Wealth creation has been locked up behind private banks, expensive financial products and $ 1,000 stocks. We open the gates by slicing shares, making investing free, and social. Now everyone can invest, no matter their wealth or what circles they run into.

The product:

Public lets you buy any stock for any amount of money. No matter the stock price. Amazon might have reached $ 2,000 a share when you read this, but on Public you can invest as little as $ 5 into Amazon. We enable everyone to be an owner of their favorite companies, no matter the size of their checkbook. Additionally, the app lets investors connect with each other via a public feed and private chats to share ideas and insights.

Currently they are averaging around 25,000 new users per month and are set to reach an astonishing 300,000 new users per month by the end of 2020. If you want to help them reach this goal, please reach out to me on matthew.carter@darwinrecruitment.com.
