The VentureFizz Podcast: Jannick Malling - Co-Founder & Co-CEO at Public

For the 134th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Jannick Malling, Co-Founder and Co-CEO at Public.

Public is a new kind of brokerage that makes it possible to buy any public stock with any amount of money commission-free. It is an idea that I wish existed when I was younger, as they are democratizing the public markets by allowing people to purchase slices of stock. It is a different philosophy where you are focused on how much you want to invest or can invest versus the number of shares. They also have a really interesting social component to the app where you can see what other people are purchasing.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Jannick’s background and career, including how he caught the entrepreneurial bug.
  • All the details on Public, including how everything works in terms of purchasing slices and the company’s business model.
  • How they are building a social layer to Public and how it is a key differentiator.
  • How they got the domain, as well as advice for founders on buying domains.
  • Advice on raising capital.
  • And so much more.

Public is offering our listeners $10 for anyone who is approved and funds a Public account through this episode. Go to: to get started.
