Presenter Profile How they describe themselves: Stockr, Inc. (“Stockr”) is a social network built for the stock market that allows you to see and discuss the news that’s moving the market. Stockr aims to be the world’s most effective online research tool for investment decision-making.

How they describe their product/innovation: Over 70 million people use the Internet to obtain financial information, yet the current platforms for discussion are archaic and inefficient. Millions of stock market investors visit Yahoo! Finance message boards and/or subscribe to stock newsletters despite the lack of transparency, poor communications, and rampant spamming. Stockr has constructed a social network for investing, bringing identity and transparency to an otherwise anonymous environment, and unveiling a new layer of market information.

Key Executives: Vinny Jindal (Co-Founder/CEO), Tim Symington (Co-Founder/President), Brendon Crawford (CTO)

Key Advisory Board Members: Adam Townsend (EVP Investor Relations, CBS Corporation/Managing Director Corporate Strategy and Investor Relations, E*Trade Financial), Todd Mackay (Former Head of Corporate Development and Controller, E*TRADE Financial), Scott Havens (SVP Digital Strategy, Atlantic Media Company/Senior Manager, Yahoo! Finance), Eric Frank (Former President Investment and Advisory Division/Former Global Managing Director Investment Management, Thomson Reuters), Craig Coblenz (Director Media Sales Southeast, Facebook/RVP Partner Marketing, Cendant)
