Dane-VrabacBelow is recent interview with Dane Vrabac, Co-Founder of Investormill:

Q: What is Investormill?

A: Investormill makes it simple to find and chart economic and financial data. We believe anyone, no matter what their skill level, should be able to find the right data in seconds. We do this by curating the search – expert users can browse full data release tables and non-experts can quickly find key economic indicators in our curated menu. Our focus on simplifying the search is what makes us different. In addition, users can customize and share charts and data. For those analysts, journalists, students and academics who don’t have access to expensive data providers like Bloomberg or CapitalIQ, we are the perfect solution.

Q: How long have you been working on Investormill and where did the idea come from?

A: Investormill has been under development for almost two years. The idea came from the founder’s experience in economic research on Wall Street – part of the job required him to help clients and colleagues find data. For most, it’s a time consuming process and navigating the user interfaces of current providers is nearly impossible. If you aren’t an expert on terminology, you’ll never find the needle in the haystack. Sadly, many non-experts even struggle to find key “headline” indicators.


Q: Could you tell us something more about your background?

A: We’re data nerds. Our experience and expertise was developed while working at Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Booz-Allen and the Federal Reserve Board.

Q: Where are you based? How big Investormill team is at the moment?

A: We are based in New York City. This summer we are taking part in the DreamIt accelerator program. The team consists of two co-founders, Robin Lahoud and me (Dane Vrabac), 4 developers and 2 interns.

Q: Are you looking for partnership opportunities or VC funding?

A: Yes, Investormill would be a great complement to many news and investment focused websites. We are currently raising our first round of funding.

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: Build a product that allows any user to find the right data in seconds – and ensure the data is accurate, up-to-date, and trustworthy (from official sources).
