About this episode:
Kyle Mack is CEO and Co-Founder of Middesk, Inc. Middesk helps companies onboard their clients faster by streamlining middle office processes. Using this approach, their clients (including Plaid, Checkr, and Truework) are able to onboard more customers, faster, while reducing compliance and business risk. Their vision is to apply these principles to every meaningful detail of every business. Doing so will improve decision-making across compliance, fraud, and underwriting by providing more relevant and complete information in areas of financial stability, legal exposure, and corporate relationships, among others. In this way, Middesk not only aims to reduce risk but expand economic opportunity to businesses that lack traditional measures of obtaining credit or financial standing.
In my conversation with Kyle, we’ll talk about his early days working in his father’s garbage business, breaking away from Checkr with his own business concept, and the many lessons he learned along the founding journey with Middesk that he hopes others can learn and benefit from.
Startup Growth Stories is hosted by Don Muir, CEO and Co-Founder of Arc Technologies. In each weekly episode of this podcast, you’ll hear from first-time, bootstrapped, and unicorn founders around how they secured their first customers, convinced their first employees to join, and grew their business. Founders and industry insiders share their greatest successes (and failures) and the things they learned along the way. In the final minutes of each episode, guests get vulnerable - they share very personal stories about the impact of their work on their wellbeing, their relationships and their families.
