In June 2010, we raised our first venture round. We are now looking to expand our team. This is an exciting time for our business, so if you are looking to make a ton of impact working with a small team, we want to hear from you.
People in our close group of mentors and advisers refer to Trefis as a “big swing at a large space”. If successful, we expect to redefine at the fundamental level, how individuals, both institutional and retail, access and use business news/information, and how corporations raise capital from the public.
