Stake raises $3.5M in Series A funding.

We’re really excited to share with our customers and partners that Stake has raised $3.5 million in Series A funding.

We started this journey 3 years ago because, for too long, those outside the U.S. had to settle for less opportunity than those inside it. Quite simply, our mission was to open up the U.S. stock market to the rest of the world.

This funding will allow us to continue on that mission and make Stake an even better place to trade U.S. shares.

We now have over 42,000 users who have joined the platform and have been a huge part of the journey. Every email, phone-call and chat allowed us to understand you better and give us more focus on what to deliver.

And we’ll be doing just that. With this funding, we’ll be improving the trading functionality within the product, building a more sophisticated brokerage but with the intuitive feel and user experience you deserve. You should see some changes coming through in the next few months.

After that, we’ll be expanding Stake’s footprint beyond Australia to allow others outside the U.S. to experience the U.S. stock market. We look forward to building a business that changes the face of financial markets for years to come.

Happy trading.

Matt, Dan and the Stake team
