The future of investing is social
Our mission is to break down the barriers to investing by creating an accessible community for all Canadians to learn and share knowledge, promoting financial literacy around the stock market and change the culture of investing.
We wanted a place where we could easily share portfolios and trades with our friends but when we started asking around this didn't exist. We realized we were onto something big and left our jobs to start Blossom!
Launched Private Beta
We move fast, and in just 6 months we launched our private beta to 250 friends and early supporters. If you see the purple 'OG' tag in the app, that means they were part of the original beta testers. To each and everyone of you, you forever have our thanks.
Raised a Pre-Seed Round
For the first 8 months of Blossom we covered expenses from our own savings and a small investment from friends & family. In January we became officially 'venture-backed' by Pareto Holdings, a fund run by the founder of Shutterstock Jon Oringer and Edward Lando, an early investor in Reddit.
On one hand, Brandon's one of Canada's biggest finance YouTubers. On the other hand, Brandon's just an awesome dude with a mean three-pointer (so he's a great addition to Blossom's future company basketball team).
Wild. A huge thank you to our first 1,000 members - you mean the world to us. You have each helped form the foundation of Blossom and without you this wouldn't be possible.
Raised $750k Angel Round
Ryan Holmes, the founder of Hootsuite, Manny Padda, NACO’s 2016 Angel of the Year, and prominent finance YouTubers Brandon Beavis and Shay Huang are just a few of many amazing folks who joined our early investors in backing Blossom. Time to take things to the next level.
What's next? Buy and sell stocks directly in Blossom.
Imagine a stock trading platform like Wealthsimple with our social community embedded. Rather than jumping in head first on your own, you can see what friends and other investors are doing and learn with the support of the community. Right now it's a dream, but soon it will be reality.
Built for you, our users.
Transparency and knowledge sharing are the pillars of our community, which is why we are sharing our product roadmap with you.
The Blossom Roadmap is completely inspired by our users so, take a look and let us know what we're missing.
