Business: An investment app empowering investors to make smarter decisions through easy access to company information.
Quartr was founded in 2020 by five entrepreneurs who met through the Swedish financial Twitter community. The startup is led by Sami Osman, who became CEO at just 25 years old, a year before the company raised $4.5million in seed funding.
One of the biggest challenges Quartr has faced so far has been launching during Covid-19. In the first quarter of 2020, and also much of the second, many start-ups and even well-established businesses struggled to survive, as global hiring ground to a halt and investment became harder to secure. However, despite these difficult conditions, Quartr has managed to grow to a team of 30 people, with plans for international expansion unfolding.
