Usually on UpTech Report, we interview founders about their SaaS startups. This edition is a little different in that we’re interviewing an investor who helps those startups—though his operation is every bit as innovative as the tech companies we typically feature.
Kyle York is the founder, CEO, and Managing Partner of York IE, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm looking to change the way companies grow.
York stops by to tell us how he’s breaking the empty cycle of fundraising rounds and working with entrepreneurs and startups using data science, intelligent market analysis, and hands-on advising and services to help companies build real strength and profitability.
