The spurious offspring of Twitch and Slack, Trading.TV recently announced the closing of a $6.1 million seed. The round was led by Tribe Capital, Navy Capital, L Catterton Growth, and Activant, Benzinga previously reported. A portion of the revenue will open a $1 million creator fund which will prioritize the monetization and growth of creative platforms before the fall projections for public availability. Founder and CEO Tobias Heaslip recognized a shift in lucrative revenue for the emerging creative economy during his decade tenure as a trader and analyst. His previous roles involved contributions for Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, and Barclays. “It was sort of the golden age of investment banking as it relates to TMT deals and social media was just becoming an investable asset class,” Heaslip revealed in a statement.
