Thanksgiving – A Time to Reflect

This week many Americans will travel to be with family and to celebrate Thanksgiving. As we near Thanksgiving I thought I would share some of the many things at Tradovate that we are thankful for this year.


First, I am thankful for our great team at Tradovate. As we near launch of Tradovate it is amazing what the team has accomplished in 18 months. From an idea on a sheet of paper to building out the entire infrastructure and trading platform to support an online futures brokerage firm is simply amazing. I am pretty excited what Tradovate will bring to the industry and it has been a lot of hard work by the team, for which I am grateful.


I am also thankful for our many industry partners. As a start-up in a pre-revenue stage many partners were willing to work with us closely to help reduce costs up front to allow us to get to launch. This has been a major help to reduce our burn rate and we appreciate our industry partners’ willingness to help.


I am thankful for all the people who have tested and given feedback on Tradovate and its beta product. This insight has been invaluable and helps us tweak our offering to maximize the client experience.


Lastly, I am thankful for my family and their willingness to support me throughout this process. Without their support, the long hours and stress of getting to market would take on an additional burden.


We have so much at Tradovate to be thankful for and we look forward to launching and sharing with our clients the fruits of our labor.


Enjoy the holiday!
