[Invitation] It's A Party

Robinhood, Clubhouse and New Team Members

Happy Friday, Founders and friends!

We hope you closed January strong to kick off 2021 right! We have a new podcast episode, hosting an AMA on Clubhouse today and we welcomed a new member to the team. Let’s get right into it 🚀

New episode, the full bloom 🎙

Rob Koyfman, Founder and CEO of Koyfin, dropped in for an emergency podcast episode to talk SaaS products and public markets with Bart.

After 15 years of trading multiple asset classes on Wall Street, Rob started building a solution to his own problem- an affordable data visualization tool for independent traders. Bart dives in with Rob to hear how the Koyfin team has built a cult-like following of casual and professional investors in the public market.

Rob breaks down how retail traders used the power of data and insight to liquidate multiple hedge funds, driving the price of GameStop up 1,600% in a few short days. Ex-hedge fund manager gives an inside-out explanation of shorting public equities.
