Company Summary

Stockr is a social network that connects investors directly to the people, publishers and companies they care about. We built Stockr because investing is an inherently social activity without a good social platform. Our mission is to make investing easier and more accesible for everyone; by requiring real identities, we're able to foster a level of sharing, collaboration, discussion and learning that simply does not happen anywhere else.
