We're on the mission to open the stock market to everyone 
by making it inclusive, educational, and fun.

Public is a social investing app that makes it possible to own the companies you believe in, with any amount of money . Through an unmistakably simple experience, Public members can buy slices of stocks and ETFs, follow interest-based themes, and learn from a transparent community of subject-matter experts and friends along the way.

Why do we exist?

The original idea behind a company offering a public trade of its shares was supposed to mean that anyone could own a piece of the companies they believe in, but for many people, this just isn’t the case.

Since its formation in the late 18th century, the American stock market has consistently been the biggest driving force for prosperity in human history. Over time, the market’s average returns are about 10% annually — significantly higher than bonds and high-yield savings accounts.

We believe a significant reason why many people do not invest is due to a lack of financial literacy, expensive financial products, and soaring share prices that can require people to invest $1,000 or more to purchase a single share of popular, high-performing stocks.

Public was built to address these factors with the aim of unlocking greater access to the stock market for a broader audience of investors.
