Henry Yoshida – CEO and Co-founder of Rocket Dollar
You never take for granted how hard it is to go and get investors.
I think that people say ‘I’ve made a bunch of calls and gotten a
bunch of no’s,’ but you have to have pretty tough skin.
In 2018, Yoshida co-founded Rocket Dollar, a fin-tech platform that helps individuals unlock retirement funds. Prior to Rocket Dollar, Henry was the co-founder of Honest Dollar, a robo-advisor retirement platform that was acquired by Goldman Sachs, as well as a founder of MY Group LLC, a $2.5-billion assets under management investment firm. Henry shares his industry expertise as a speaker at several industry conferences, as well as having been featured or quoted in the Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Financial Times. Henry has a passion for helping people be the best that they can be and contributes as a member in several financial and technology industry organizations. He is a NextGen Venture and Central Texas Angel Network Partner, as well as a Techstars and Capital Factory mentor. In addition, Yoshida is a Certified Financial Planner and a former Merrill Lynch Vice President. He was a two time finalist for PLANSPONSOR’s Retirement Plan Advisor of the Year and a 401(k) Leadership finalist for the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries.
Joshua Lisec – Bestselling Certified Professional Ghostwriter and Founder of The Entrepreneur’s Wordsmith
In fiction, there is the hero’s journey. The protagonist conquers evil,
gets the girl, etc. In nonfiction, you the reader are the hero. So, in
nonfiction we’re taking you the reader on a journey from
where you are to where you want to be.
