In this episode, Hall welcomes back Henry Yoshida Founder and CEO of Rocket Dollar Inc. Rocket Dollar was founded in 2018 with the belief that retirement is changing. They believe that people should not be limited in their investment options as they work towards the retirement they envision for themselves. Rocket Dollar makes it safe, simple, and fast for people to take control of their retirement savings.
Henry is a successful entrepreneur and an experienced angel investor. He was the founder of the venture capital-backed robo-advisor retirement plan platform Honest Dollar (acquired by Goldman Sachs), and MY Group LLC (acquired by CAPTRUST), a $2.5 billion assets under management investment firm. He was a Merrill Lynch Vice President, and proudly serves as a Central Texas Angel Network Partner, Techstars + Capital Factory mentor, and NextGen Venture Partner.
In this episode, we catch up with Henry and what he has been up to since our previous episode. Since we last spoke, Henry has been progressing his business and spending most of his time on the entrepreneur operator side of things. He shares some of his investing experience with both the best and worst experiences he has encountered and shares what he ultimately thinks is key- balance. In a startup, you have to come to work and you have to execute every day, but there’s always a limited lifeline for every startup by definition until it’s no longer a startup.
