On this episode of the Startup of the Year Podcast we’re going
to hear an interview that Rich Maloy, our VP of Engagement at
Established, did with Aaron Froug.
Aaron is the Co-Founder and CEO of Grifin, which is a cool new
fintech app that makes investing as energizing as buying your
morning coffee. Basically, the app allows users to invest a dollar
in every company where they spend money. It is pretty amazing and
I’ve never really seen anything quite like it.
Grifin was the People’s Choice Award winner at our Startup of
the Year Summit last Fall and our entire team was pretty excited
about it and most actually downloaded the app. Aaron also talks
about raising capital and other tips and tricks that he has learned
while navigating the waters as a startup
