Brief description of your company: As competition in the world of trading and information platforms increases, users are increasingly dissatisfied with products which either cost thousands of dollars or aren't robust enough to be truly useful. And while there are plenty of professional services which offer enterprise-strength tools, none has been both powerful and affordable. Until now. Zoonova is based on the "freemium" business model where its basic subscription package is offered at loss-leader-pricing: free—nothing—zip. Even premium features in the executive subscription are offered at an extremely competitive price: $(29) per month. It is our goal to continue developing an innovative enterprise level cross-asset financial platform that levels the playing field—allowing Zoonova users to compete against any competitor, worldwide. With enterprise-level features like this, some have called Zoonova the "new Bloomberg." To them, we say, "Thanks... but we're affordable!"
