Question for the audience: What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase: “Vest in Peace”?

While you chew on that, I want to introduce you to Immad Akhund: Founder and CEO of Mercury and our esteemed guest this week on the show. We spend a lot of time talking about Mercury’s amazing growth trajectory, the harsh realities of being a founder, Immad’s passion (or lack thereof) for investing, the importance of having a network in San Francisco, Mercury Raise and more. 

Please note that Mercury is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services provided by Choice Financial Group and Evolve Bank & Trust, Members FDIC.
