Brian Anderson is the Founder and CEO of Raze. Raze is a private fundraising platform and accredited investor community that streamlines and improves the process of raising capital that issues a proof of investment NFT to investors and offers smart payouts using smart contracts.

Matt Deaton is an accomplished business professional with a wealth of experience working with startups to drive growth in marketing, sales, and product development. He holds an MBA from Rollins College and a bachelor's degree in Sales and Marketing from the University of Louisville, and has applied his knowledge and expertise to a diverse range of industries including Healthcare, Hospitality and Tourism, and Technology products and services.

Michael Budensiek has been coaching for 17 years. During that time he has discovered many entrepreneurs have foundational challenges that when mastered, pave the way for expansion and growth. However, when left unsolved keep us stuck in a cycle that can lead to stress, burnout, and constantly questioning ourselves.

Michael works with entrepreneurs, business owners, and execs to co-create agreed upon solutions for solving these problems and unlocking new levels. Programs are custom created to fit the individual, because as one individual grows - so does everything else around them.

Michael spends time speaking and educating entrepreneurs and business owners on the 5 pillars of the foundation to living an entrepreneurial life. michaelblife.com
