ScaleRoad is a platform for tracking and managing your investment research in a structured and organized way. It was started with one big goal in mind: to help all investors make better decisions from the place of confidence and thus achieve all of their financial and investing goals. That's our mission.
Over the last decade, a lot has changed in the investment world, but the single most important and impactful change has been the democratization of the access to the markets. The emergence of user-friendly, commission-free investing platforms, as well as some alternative assets (like cryptocurrencies) has, together with highly-accessible quality online education, effectively helped in transforming the investment world from something that was perceived to be a rich people thing, to something that everyday people talk and are excited about.
Also, the year 2020 and the covid pandemic have taught millions of people about the importance of having some sort of savings and investments at all times. As a result, we are now a few steps closer to the world in which everybody is an investor, as we believe it should be the case.
Also, these new times have brought us a variety of alternative, non-traditional investments, such as: cryptocurrencies and other crypto assets, various types of crowdfunding investments (especially equity crowdfunding), tokenized assets (such as Non-fungible Tokens, or NFTs), peer-to-peer (P2P) loans, alternatives to the traditional IPO process (such as direct listings and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, or SPACs), and many, many more!
All of these new ways to invest look very exciting to us and we are extremely happy and grateful to be a part of this booming industry.
Here are some of the most important insights that we have about the investment world that will help us provide you with the best possible user experience and help you find that life-changing investment:
1. We understand the power of conviction: Most of the time, people don't pay enough attention to their personal conviction that they have about their investments. While being properly diversified is always important, there are sometimes situations in which you see the future prospects of an investment before anyone else. If you stick to these opportunities for long enough, you'll be very handsomely rewarded, and despite the fact that this road will inevitably have many ups and downs, you'll end up being on top because you did enough research and have enough conviction.
2. We understand the importance of research: To be able to build enormous amounts of conviction into any investment you need to do a lot of research work, which can inadvertently be made harder than it needs to be by simply not having the right system in place to organize and track all of your research. Even though some people rely on just the old school simple spreadsheets to organize their research, we believe that there is a much better way to accomplish that. That's why ScaleRoad is built specifically for investors, by their fellow investors.
3. We realize the future of data: At this point, almost everyone has at least once heard someone say that data is the new oil or that we are now living in the information age, and we take things like these very seriously. That's why our product is built from the ground up to help you get the most out of your data and to let you always get the very best insights out of it. It's ideal tool for all investors that feel like they've outgrown the old-school Excel spreadsheets and are ready to try something new, innovative and different. Our long-term vision also includes building out a whole set of AI-powered features that will help you discover the most powerful insights from your data that were previously not visible to the naked eye.
As investors, we sometimes aren't aware about the impact that we create. And it's not just in the financial terms - far from it. As investors, we get to vote about the future that we want to bring to reality with every single dollar that we invest. It's extremely powerful to look at the progress of our investments over time and be proud to be part of something that's bigger than us. It also provides us with the glimpse of future reality before it's obvious to everyone else. ScaleRoad's vision is to help magnify this impact even more and make it exponentially more powerful.
