Quartr, the app that gives investors easy on-the-go access to company information, has raised a $4.5 million seed round from some of the biggest names in financing.
The round was led by The Öhman Group with prominent investors including Michael Batnick, Ben Carlson, Josh Brown, Barry Ritholtz as well as Peter Sterky (CEO of Trift Capital and former Spotify COO and CFO) also participating.
Founded less than a year ago, and already employing a team of 23 people, the Stockholm-based startup solves a big problem for investors and companies alike, offering the first digital platform for investors looking to make better decisions, while serving companies with the insights they need to improve their communications.
The company has already over 250,000 played events from more than 4,000 companies across 15 markets. It recently launched a new feature that lets users highlight and guide other investors to specific points of interest within its audio content.
Quartr will use the funding to scale its platform and operations globally, bolstering its B2B division so that companies can use the platform to connect and get feedback from investors located in over 150 markets around the world.
