Our Culture
MarketBeat Team

Community Impact

While MarketBeat’s mission is to empower individual investors, the work that we do has a direct impact in our local community. We celebrate a company culture that encourages each team member to invest their time, talents, and treasure toward the causes they believe in most.

  • For every $250 a MarketBeat employee contributes to a local 501 (c)3 not-for-profit organization, MarketBeat will match that contribution dollar for dollar up to $2,000 per calendar year.
  • MarketBeat will also contribute $250 to any local 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization one of MarketBeat’s employees has volunteered at least 10 hours during the calendar year.

  • MarketBeat encourages employees to take a hands-on approach to MarketBeat’s corporate philanthropy by helping champion MarketBeat’s philanthropic activities while maintaining alignment with MarketBeat’s mission, vision, and values.
