Advisor Help with Social Stock App on the App Store Before We Accept VC Funding
Whats good everyone. I currently am in the process of building a social stock app called Iris which allows you to follow the trades/portfolios of friends in real time, engage in stock group chats & message boards with all stock data right then & there, compare % returns via demographic leaderboards, & much more. Pretty much taking the social to the markets.
The thought is we will make this app a way to democratize knowledge in the hopes of creating stronger, more informed retail investors. I am trying to gather as many opinions as possible as I build the app and am looking for advisors that may want to join the team.
As of now we have 450 active users with extremely strong user engagement & user growth. We are being constantly talked to by VC tech firms who want to invest once we hit the user growth number needed. We have large partnerships ready to go so we are not worried about hitting the number and can get the funding pretty much when we believe we are reading.
Other competitors in the space currently are valued around 20-25M with aboutusers to date (we believe).
I am 24 and our other founder is 25. We do not have any banking background and with this being a fin tech app, we see the value of bringing on people who may be interested in the growth & trajectory of the app.
If any one is interested feel free to comment and I can relay some more details over to you! (Also looking for a part time CFO with equity pay available)
