Scott Galloway Joins Will Smith's Dreamers VC, NFL Star JJ Watt With Public App Investment

Public, a commission-free and fractional trading investment app backed by Will Smith’s Dreamers VC and NFL star J.J. Watt, among others, formally announced professor and entrepreneur Scott Galloway made an investment in the company.

What Happened? Launched in 2019, Public is a globally recognized community-based investing solution that democratizes access to financial literacy.

As part of a vision that aims to expand America’s investing class, Galloway joins as an outspoken advocate for the democratization of investing. His investment in Public will allow the company to strategically build out its next generation of modern investing tools which unlock access to investing for all.

“The surge of interest in the stock market is a net positive for our economy and our society,” said Scott Galloway, Professor of Marketing at NYU Stern and investor in Public.

“Financial literacy grows through the exchange of ideas and information about business strategy. I believe the diverse community that Public is building and focuses on investing vs. gambling creates a healthier ecosystem.”

Why It Matters: Overall, the investment will make it possible for more users, of all backgrounds, to exchange ideas, as well as invest in a productive and transparent way.

“True democratization of investing necessitates a change to the very culture of investing,” said Leif Abraham, Co-CEO of Public. “Throughout his career, Scott Galloway has educated mainstream audiences on business strategy while also encouraging them to challenge convention. His perspective adds tremendous value as we continue to create an inclusive environment for all investors.”
