BizSpark Featured Startup App: TradingView
Today we feature a BizSpark Startup who recently published their Finance App called TradingView . Trading View helps you track accurate information for stocks and other markets with the most advanced charts available and enables you to set up personal watchlists and follow hotlists with top gainers and losers.
How TradingView is redefining how you think about traders and investors
When someone says “trader”, most people think of Michael Douglas’s character in “Wall Street” - a secretive, and sometimes cruel, financial shark. But in reality - YOU are most likely a trader (or at least an investor). If you ever put money into a 401K - you are an investor, and if you do several transactions a year, that qualifies you as long-term trader. TradingView’s mission is to show you that all of us can be investors and traders, that financial analysis is nothing to fear, and that together we can achieve more than alone.
TradingView is a network for investors and traders to meet, look at charts and exchange ideas. “Another social network?!”, you are probably screaming in your head. Yes and no - it’s a network around a particular interest but WITH free tools for analyzing the markets to replace expensive existing options.

Stan Bokov, co-founder and COO of TradingView has extensive experience building professional software for traders along with his co-founders. Before TradingView, they built a sophisticated trading platform for retail traders called MultiCharts and grew it to 2MM of annual cash flow, but switched to TradingView because of the much larger opportunity.
Getting accepted into the Techstars Chicago program in the summer of 2013 was a pivotal point for the company. Getting access to vast amounts of knowledge and industry experience through hundreds of mentors, learning key business tactics through focused lectures and having the chance to pitch to hundreds of VCs at Demo Day at the House of Blues all bolted the company to the next level.
Because of the program, TradingView was able to meet and work with such industry superstars as Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Microsoft. Awesome Microsoft mentors and evangelists Sonal Mane and Chris Bernard in fact inspired TradingView to build their first ever native app! It’s currently gone through all testing and was recently released in the Microsoft Store - check it out!
