You may think of NASDAQ as a stock exchange — and you’d be partly right. In 1971, NASDAQ invented electronic trading and the modern IPO, and we’ve been supporting and celebrating innovation ever since. But 40 years later, our technology powers 1 of every 10 transactions around the world on 70 exchanges in 50 countries. And we now operate in markets as diverse as options, fixed income, commodities and energy.
Today, more than 3,500 companies are listed on NASDAQ. Large or small, startup or established, these companies all have one thing in common: they’re the most forward-thinking in their industries. Think Starbucks. Tesla. Groupon. Google. Whole Foods. Apple. Here at NASDAQ, we thrive on the energy of companies that push the boundaries and we celebrate the visionaries who lead them. We see these companies as like-minded partners for NASDAQ. From our vantage point at the NASDAQ Marketsite in the heart of New York City, to our offices in Stockholm and Hong Kong, we are uniquely positioned to give you a front row seat to the innovations these companies are leading in tech, fashion, finance, healthcare and beyond.
So we welcome you to our Tumblr. This site will be your window into game-changing innovation, where every weekday we’ll feature the people, products and ideas that, like Tumblr, are literally changing the world.
