From launching a FinTech LLC in my attic with one mac book and one PC to building a broker dealer in-formation with 5 fully licensed registered reps, 15 interns and 8 dedicated devices - to signing two 3 year contracts; one with a major digital bank and one with a major clearing house (Fully FDIC and SIPC insured) - to graduating college with a dual undergrad in Finance and Economics; 2019 was the year to end a decade. My team and I have raised over $300,000 to date, all while attending school full time, building a broker/banking app and landing huge industry partners(Not to mention earning credibility in one of the worlds most highly regulated industries with some of the brightest, most educated working professionals ). While our investing product awaits licensing approval, our educational product has gained traction with multiple school districts and is continuing to grow in popularity at a rapid pace. In 2019 we set out to turn an old industry on its head by leveraging technology, in 2020 we will bring investing to the 99%

I am Scaling Entrepreneur. I believe with the right product mix, a powerful mission and an ace marketing strategy, my team and i can post tremendous growth with a sufficient capital injection. We are in an exploding market, a niche market within an otherwise more crowded space. By creating an accessible investing/banking product, we may tap into, and rapidly scale within an undeveloped, overlooked market segment.
