About this event

Sometimes you just want a super app. While that's probably not happening in the USA until Twitter gets its act together (good luck), there's another service we can look to for inspiration.

Jannick Malling is the co-founder and co-CEO of Public, the investing platform that allows people to invest in stocks, ETFs, treasuries, crypto, art, collectibles, and more – all in one place.

Since its founding in 2019, Public has raised over $300 million from investors like Accel, Lakestar, Tiger Global, Will Smith (Dreamers VC), and other angels such as Maria Sharapova, Tony Hawk, NFL stars J.J. Watt and Bobby Wagner, and more.

That's right... Tony Hawk is into this. ?

Public is on a mission to make the public markets work for all people. The fintech went from founding to unicorn status in less than 3 years, and has been one of the fastest growing financial services apps in America with over 3 million members since launching.

And Jannick has been doing things like this since he was 17 years old. He's built and sold fintech companies in Denmark and the USA, and he's ready to take Public beyond stocks and crypto into other asset classes while expanding it internationally.

Join us during NYC Tech Week on Wednesday, Oct 18 and hear what Jannick has learned about keeping a competitive edge and shipping products at scale... all while maintaining strong user retention in a market that sometimes struggles with trust and commitment issues.

Tickets for this event are $10 and include food and drinks (yes, the boozy kind), as well as exclusive access to this seasoned entrepreneur who will share how he navigated global expansion in a highly regulated market... and keeps users happy while doing it.

We'll be meeting LIVE AND IN-PERSON at The Yard, a coworking space at the intersection of innovation, creativity, design, & play -- with locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Philly, and DC -- with a variety of shared and private workspace options. If you are interested in learning more or scheduling a visit, you can do so here.
