SparkFin has created the first comprehensive mobile screener with the best ideas from top traders and investors. It’s a stock market idea machine in your pocket. Users have the potential to go from stock market newbies to sensing the market in just a matter of days.
Why are you in this type of business?
We recognized that great stock ideas exist everywhere, but they’re trapped in an old school system. In response, we created a simple, mobile tool that better compliments the world we live in now. We want to help a new generation learn about the stock market with a better mobile experience and collaboration tools. Our app is created for users on all levels; whether you’re a beginner or a pro in stocks, you will be able to easily navigate different industries, and instantly get stock ideas from your phone.
Who’s your perfect client?
Our perfect client is someone new to the stock market that has everything to gain from using our app. The stock market is a complex and tough business, and professionals in the field spend millions of dollars building the best tools to crack the market. Since our launch in October in 2015, we have been dedicated to maintaining a friendly and easy to use interface, with features that our users want most. For a beginner who is interested in understanding the stock market, they will be able to simply navigate the industries that most interest them, and are able to build off of curated lists from some of the greatest investors of all time like Warren Buffet, Carl Icahn, and more.
What has been your biggest challenge as a company?
Taking old school habits on a PC and creating a mobile solution. Not only do you need to be able to develop and deploy you product proficiently, but you also need it to be supported on several mobile platforms that are constantly evolving. Also, in a time where consumers have the benefit of finding a device that fits them perfectly, developers have a laundry list of devices with various resolutions, and screen sizes to configure to. The challenges that SparkFin, or any company that wants to have an app face are the same, but we believe that we have found the secret recipe for our product.
Why is co-working a good fit for you?
Co-working offers a high energy, and positive office environment that motivates start-ups to reach their potential. At SparkFin, our team is very laid back, and fun, or at least we like to think so, and the flexibility and style of co-working definitely compliments us.
