A social network purely about investing: Zurich's yeekatee raises $1.9 million

yeekatee, a Swiss educational social network aimed at the investing community, has raised $1.9m to support its early product roadmap from investors including Avaloq co-founder Ronald Strässler.

yeekatee is a social network that, once launched, will connect investment novices to seasoned market operators, hopefully helping more people make the most of their wealth.

Right now the startup is still taking registrations, but Swiss customers will have access in April, before users in the rest of Europe join the platform early next year.

The product is structured for learning with investing tutorials and market insights to be highlighted by yeekatee's community, along with poweruser tools like "near-real-time" asset watchlists.  yeekatee also proposes to join forces with institutional investors, from banks to brokers and asset managers.

Commenting on the pre-seed fundraise, yeekatee co-founder Didier Matthey said: "We're proud to have such strong support from our investors as we bring yeekatee to the market.

"We believe yeekatee will change the future of investing, the way people engage with investing topics and activities. And we can't wait to see the impact it has on our users."
