Technology, almost indisputably, is heralded as the leading field for a huge chunk of the investment pie. Investors, entrepreneurs, CEO’s and others, who want to see a surefire long-term return on their money, will do well to keep themselves updated on this trend.  Even the non-traditional shareholders are getting into the act.  For example, educators are asking their schools and local government to invest more in technology-driven learning.

Their interest can hardly be faulted. Juniper Research forecasts a 700 percent increase in crowdfunded-fueled tech investments by 2020—a growth from $1.1 billion in 2015 to $8.2 billion in four years’ time.

During this period, many investors, newbies and experienced alike, will, undoubtedly, be using technology to their advantage as well. Using finance apps to check which stocks to support is one way. Doing so will also help them determine which ones to put on the backburner. There is a certain sweet justice to the phenomenon of millions of users clicking on their smartphones to make sure they get the latest tips on the hottest tech stocks: finance apps, brought about the further development of technology, is providing the information and guidance for interested parties to get themselves invested in finance technologies.

Another interesting twist to this is that learning about investments will happen through mobile devices. This is a trend which the modern workforce have grown accustomed to and which the following generations will bring to an entirely new level in the near future. In his Huffington Post blog, Edthena CEO Adam J. Geller pointed out that in an internet-wired world, pre-teen and teen students alike will find that “learning can happen outside the confines of a classroom and the limits of a class period.”

Every Child Succeeds Act (ESSA), which was signed into law by U.S. President Barack Obama in December of 2015, devotes considerable attention to innovation. It encourages government officials and educators to study the kind of technology that can accelerate learning, and provides them the financial incentive to spend on projects related to their research.

Investors, past and future, who are drawn to the immense potential returns offered by technology-driven ventures, can find a useful and handy instrument to navigate their choices in the aptly named  Born2Invest app. This app clicks open to a door of a sea of content on aspects of the business and financial sectors, with a special focus on the stock market and its trading activities.

By all indications, the app’s 80-word articles on technology-related investment is a major section, right alongside banking, finance, property, online media, oil, and gas. Every succinct piece of news contains the relevant details and is curated and sourced from the most reputable news outlets around the world. Reports are updated and uploaded almost as soon as the news hits, which empowers young investors and crowdfunders to make lightning-fast decisions about their businesses.

The Born2Invest app equips its readers with financial literacy needed for trading. For example, after reading content related to stocks readers are interested or invested in, they can make decisions on buying, selling or holding on to them. In the heat of the race for technology-fueled stocks, that short span of time will matter and determine who will make a profit and who just might lose out on it.

The rapid growth of technology investments will demand the same alacrity from those who would want to yield healthy streams of revenue from it. Financial and business apps, like the Born2Invest App, are sources of power that can accelerate the win for investors.
