Sitashwa Srivastava's Stockal one among the six entries from India for WSJDLive 2015
Great Lakes alumnus Sitashwa Srivastava’s (PGPM 2007) start-up Stockal has been selected as one amongst the six entries from India for Wall Street Journal’s WSJDLive Global Startup Showcase 2015.
In response to a congratulatory message, here is what Sitashwa had to say about this attainment:
“FinTech is a promising area and one of the most significant, upcoming, opportunities to impact the financial well-being of people. The appeal of Stockal is universal because it focuses on capital investments with a strong dose of social media, crowdsourcing and big data analytics. Guess that's relatively unique from the point of view of traditional stock market observers and that worked for Stockal in getting shortlisted. Long way to go, of course!”
In October 2015, only eight of the most innovative startups from around 250 applicants from around the world, will get a chance to present their ideas to eminent members of the Silicon Valley. Besides India, applications were received from countries like France, the UK, Canada, South Africa, Hongkong and Singapore. The Wall Street Journal will host its second WSJDLive event in Laguna Beach, California.
