Justin Cooke September 12, 2019

In this episode, I talk with successful startup founder Immad Akhund about his background and latest company — Mercury Bank. Joe recently had a chat with Immad, and we jumped at the idea of having him come onto the show.

Immad is a 4-time founder and recently exited HeyZap for $45M. Instead of retiring, he decided to launch another startup — Mercury.

Mercury is a bank for startups with benefits that separate it from the competition. Listen in to learn more about how the business got started, its future plans, and what it takes to repeatedly launch successful businesses.
