Trading.TV Launches Out of Stealth with $6.1 Million in Seed Funding to Support Financial Creators
Trading.TV Is the First And Only Fintech Platform Purpose Built for the Creator Economy
NEW YORK, July 29, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trading.TV, the world’s first social livestream and immersive chat platform for traders and financial content creators, announced today the launch of its platform, closed beta and a $6.1M seed funding round led by L Catterton Growth, Activant, Navy Capital and Tribe Capital. As part of the launch, Trading.TV also announced a $1M Creator Fund to support the first group of creators joining the platform.
Trading.TV is the only dedicated platform for creators to develop and share financial content on everything from stocks to crypto to NFTs and rare sneakers. Eventually, Trading.TV will also serve as a commission-free trading platform where community members can turn information into action.
There has never been such a large influx of new asset classes and new traders to the markets – and with that comes a massive need for both entertaining and educational financial content. Trading.TV will remove the friction between idea generation and investment execution for millions of fans, followers and audiences around the world.
“By building a platform that is digitally native, values diversity of interests and assets, and puts inclusion at its center, we hope to unlock financial wellbeing for millions of people that haven’t previously felt welcome in the financial conversation,” said Trading.TV Founder and CEO Tobias Heaslip. “We want to empower and excite younger generations to start thinking about their financial futures sooner — to do smart things with their investments earlier on so they can live life on their own terms.”
Trading.TV is the first and only fintech platform purpose built for the creator economy. It will be a destination for financial influencers to create entertaining content and build communities around their interests and users to buy and sell the underlying assets that creators are talking about.
Trading.TV is currently hand picking its first 50 creators to join the closed beta, unlocking new ways for them to monetize their content and offering immediate support through the $1M Creator Fund. In addition to the fund, Trading.TV will use its seed funding to continue building the team and investing in platform growth ahead of public availability in the fall.
Creators interested in joining Trading.TV’s closed beta can apply here. People interested in joining the Trading.TV community and getting early access to creator content can sign up for the waitlist here.
Trading.TV is the world’s first social livestream platform purpose-built for the next generation of traders and financial content creators. In an era where everything is an asset and everyone is a trader, Trading.TV offers the content, community and collaboration necessary to become an expert. We’re dedicated to a future where anyone can Stream, Chat and Trade their way to financial independence.
