DAO Founding Contributor Spotlight #2
Fintech Collective is a $200m early stage VC based in New York. Across the tech-driven shift from physical to digital, the founding partners built, scaled, and exited four global businesses — in capital markets, payments, and enterprise tech. Three of those businesses were VC-backed; one was bootstrapped. One went public on the NASDAQ, and the largest exited for over a billion dollars.
Sean runs the DeFi practice and is focused on identifying high growth businesses in the DeFi space with teams that display strong evidence of their ability to successfully deliver paradigm shifting DeFi products.
When asked what excited him about Spool, Sean said,
“I am looking forward to helping with distribution across our smart contract wallets. I think every asset owner or manager will be thinking about incorporating bespoke, automated strategies.”
Sean sees the potential in Spool and is particularly interested in functionality that allows users to “manage vaults with different strategies” all within one deposit address and interface.
Spool DAO Initiator, Luke Lombe, said,
“Sean is a well connected and erudite addition to the Spool DAO. His experience working within multiple facets of the US venture capital space, both in blockchain and traditional tech, opens significant opportunities for Spool.
Sean and the Fintech Collective are renowned for backing high quality projects. They have been early seed investors in a number of wallets and Sean has extensive networks throughout the traditional finance world, including as lead investors in NYDIG, who are onboarding major institutions such as pension funds, endowments, SWFs, and the likes of Mass Mutual, into crypto.”
