RSG235: Business Banking for Freelancers, Gig Workers and Self-Employed!

In this episode, I’m chatting with Nick Adler, the Chief Operating Officer of Found, a banking and tax app created with small-business owners, freelancers, and the self-employed in mind.

Nick is helping to build a modern financial platform for one of the largest underserved segments in the U.S. economy – the self-employed worker!

Found is a financial technology company, not a bank. Banking services are provided by Piermont Bank, Member FDIC.
