CEO @PayStand. General Partner @Sharkbait Labs. CoFounder. Engineer. Surfer. Hacker. Globe Trotter. Blockchain Advocate. Fledgling Investor. Bluewater Sailor. MBA Kid. Enjoyer of Life. Doer of Good. Where'd the above mouthful come from? I "grew up" in a highly successful (and exited) product focused engineering (nanotech) company. I learned to lead in a heavily M&A based global public corporation. And I found out what matters most in the world, by selling it all to sail around the world on a 40ft boat, spend months exploring the most far reaches of the globe. So what's left? Keep doing what you love: Take a great idea on a napkin. Build an amazing team. Talk to your customers. Create an innovative product. Stay agile. Pivot as the market shifts. Quietly grow the business. Wow your customers. Create value for your stakeholders. Transform an industry. Make the world a better place. Surprise everyone. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

COMPANY INFO

Paystand

Paystand's on a mission to create a more open financial system, starting with B2B payments. Using blockchain and cloud technology, we pioneered Payments-as-a-Service to digitize and automate the entire cash lifecycle. Our software makes it possible to digitize receivables, automate processing, reduce time-to-cash, eliminate transaction fees, and enable new revenue. We asked ourselves: "What would payments look like if we recreated them today from scratch?"​ We imagined it would look more like this, so we built it: - No transaction fees - Automated receivables and payables - 100% paperless - Real-time cash recognition - Flat monthly pricing - Instant Reconciliation - No markups or interchange fees - Flexible integrations Contact us today to make payments the easiest part of running your business.
