  • Chris Mackey, founder: I previously worked as a research analyst with a technology-focused long/short equity hedge fund. Prior to my time on the buy side, I was a member of the technology, media and telecom group with Standard & Poor's Vista Research. Frustration from the lack of viable workflow tools and constant inefficiencies in the investment enterprise gave me the inspiration to develop the industry's smartest research management application.
