Enhancing the ownership experience for the everyday investor.
ShareClub levels the playing field for everyday retail investors, by providing access to information & benefits that large investors have experienced for decades.
THE SHARECLUB NORTH STAR
Let’s change the market, together.
For decades retail investors have been overlooked as a key part of the investment ecosystem. We fundamentally believe that individual retail investors are the key to unlocking value in the market. Companies have a duty to provide all investors with the tools & information needed to be empowered, informed, and engaged owners. ShareClub unlocks this value through shareholder rewards & benefits.
We strive to help both sides of the market with empowered retail investing.
On Sam Hollander's (Co-Founder + CEO) 18th birthday, he opened up a brokerage account and purchased stocks in three companies he had been a loyal customer of. He decided to take investing advice from legendary investors, Warren Buffet & Peter Lynch, and follow their general thesis, "Invest in what you know."
In the summer of 2021, one of these companies started offering shareholder benefits & rewards to their investors. As a financial optimizer, Hollander was quick to take advantage of the rewards.
He noticed that offering shareholder rewards were a win-win for both investors and public companies. For investors, the value proposition is no longer just to hope the stock price goes up -- it's about adding utility & value. For the company, they’re now able to engage & communicate with a large and loyal segment of its market.
When Hollander realized the market opportunity, ShareClub was born. Hollander teamed up with experienced developer and colleague, James LePage, and the two started working on a platform that would offer shareholder benefits and rewards to individual (retail) investors in the US.
Hollander and LePage realized that it's about more than just rewards; it's about providing equal access & opportunity in the market to all investors, no matter the size of your portfolio, your connections, or your net worth. The opportunity to help bridge the gap between public companies and their individual investors is enormous and that's the vision Hollander & LePage are passionately working towards.
We’re a team of experienced tech entrepreneurs, and developers (& also retail investors) dedicated to bridging the gap between public companies and their everyday investors.
