Trading Ticket closed a $4m Seed Round from Valar Ventures (Peter Thiel's fund) and Citi Ventures. The company allows users to quickly and easily place orders with their existing online brokerage accounts from any website or mobile device.
The idea is to develop a series of mobile and desktop products covering all manner of financial transactions: apps to help people open accounts; access credit; place orders for shares and communicate with each other and their financial service providers. Trade It, the first product, will focus on the third of these areas. It’s an API-based service that lets people place orders for trades instantly and securely directly on third-party sites, apps or Twitter.
