“We are honored to be accepted into the elite group of competitors for the 2014 Fin Tech Cup. At Slingshot Insights, we believe that the existing investment research marketplace is both exclusionary and inefficient, resulting in a significant duplication of work,” said Joe McCann, Founder of Slingshot Insights. “Our goal is to become the world’s first community of investors focused on using crowdsourcing to fund primary source investment research.”
Slingshot Insights is a company that was born out of its founder’s desire to fill a void he experienced as an individual investor after having worked at a large hedge fund. Currently, individual investors and smaller money managers have limited access to many resources that large money managers take for granted. Expert networks, custom surveys, management meetings, and other research requests are expensive and frequently have large upfront fees to gain access. Slingshot Insights’ innovative platform breaks down a number of barriers to these resources through our collaborative expert platform. The company’s goal is to level the playing field between well capitalized institutional money managers and other investors by providing affordable access to expert driven primary research.
