Many new companies fail within the first year. If they do make it, the years ahead are often tricky, but this is not the case for Stock Sharks, the cutting-edge stock investment edtech company based in Canada. Co-founded by Sheraz Ali and Jr. Alexander, the company has been expanding exponentially year after year and is currently seeing growth by an astounding 65 percent per year. What makes them different? Stock Sharks puts their international community at the very center of anything they do, from research and innovation to continuous support.
Established only three years ago, Stock Sharks has a fantastic reputation in the United States, Canada, and even the Middle East. “Our marketing strategy is not advertisement. We actually try to do the best job we can for our community. Then, they refer their friends, and so we grow. We aren’t interested in promotion. We are interested in reputation,” shares Sheraz Ali.
Stock Sharks aims to be the number one research service in the world. The co-founders plan to get there by innovating and putting the time into research in order to provide just what their community needs. They currently offer two services: the Platinum and the Synergy.
“Platinum is perfect for individuals. If you want to get started and learn the fundamentals of investing, this is for you. If you already have some but not too much of an experience, this is where you should head. Now, for Synergy, this is our service for hedge funds, private equity, and those who manage around $50 million,” clarifies Ali. He points out that Stock Sharks never tries to steer a new community member into a path that isn’t exactly right for them. “If you’re here for education, we’ve got you covered. Then, when you’re ready, you can select one of the two tracks to follow,” he adds.
Stock Sharks is different from the competition. While they always try to see what others are doing well and what the community and the market wants, they don’t pour too much energy into comparisons. “My best advice for anyone who’s trying to start a business or runs one is to focus on your people first. Make sure to niche down. If your business is too broad and you try to emulate everything that the competitors are doing, you’ll lose your identity. Instead, focus on quality. Deliver the best service you can to your community, don’t simply try to grow without upholding your standards,” advises Ali.
The quality over quantity strategy has been a huge hit so far. Stock Sharks has been privately valued at an amount surpassing $4 million. The company foresaw the surge of the Overstock stock two years in advance. The Canadian-based SaaS company is proud of its diverse employees and is looking forward to growing the team to support the ever-growing community of clients who are excited to begin their investing journeys and reach their full potential.
