Investor Connect – Chris Bystrom of Ruca

Investor Connect – Chris Bystrom of Ruca

September 22, 2019 by investor

In this episode, Hall welcomes Chris Bystrom of Ruca. Before investing in early-stage companies, Chris worked in UX design firms in Chicago, Tokyo, and New York. He has built large enterprise-grade software platforms for clients and ran his seed-stage startup for two years.

During that period, he had a chance to see what worked in that space and what did not. Chris wanted to create a different model and founded Ruca, a founder-support system for early-stage capital and advisory programs.
