Trading.TV, a NYC-based social livestream and immersive chat platform for traders and financial content creators, launched its platform in closed beta and raised $6.1M seed in funding.
The round was led by L Catterton Growth, Activant, Navy Capital and Tribe Capital.
The company will use its seed funding to continue building the team and investing in platform growth ahead of public availability in the fall.
Led by Founder and CEO Tobias Heaslip, Trading.TV is a dedicated platform for creators to develop and share financial content on everything from stocks to crypto to NFTs and rare sneakers. Eventually, Trading.TV will also serve as a commission-free trading platform where community members can turn information into action.
As part of the launch, the company also announced a $1M Creator Fund to support the first group of creators joining the platform.
