You’re building a company to change the world, not to deal with boring lawyers and confusing regulation.
First, we write you a check. Then, we help you with compliance, legal strategy, lobbying, go-to-market and all the other scary things, so you can get back to building.
Hey there, we’re Ian & Stevie.
We are ex-operators & founders with deep experience in building in regulated sectors. Stevie was a partner at a NYC-based BigLaw firm, worked @ Johns Hopkins, consults for firms like KKR, & started a women's health genetics company. Ian started Fintech Today, built products at companies like Acorns, has been in fintech & crypto for 10+ years, and was the head of product at one of the leading wine e-commerce companies.
