- Howie Town
I was born in Toronto and reside in Phoenix, AZ. I am married (25 years, 18.2 Canadian years), have two awesome kids and a dog named Lindzee (dachshund).
Schools I attended and even graduated from include—University of Western Ontario, Arizona State University and the American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird).
I am focused on the innovation in personal finance and do-it-yourself investing.
I make early stage investments through Social Leverage.
I am the co-founder and chairman of StockTwits
I was the Executive Producer of “This is Not Financial Advice”
If you don’t believe me, here is what Entrepreneur Magazine said about me:
Howard Lindzon is an irreverent buzz machine who powers through wall-to-wall meetings on five milligrams of Adderall. A prolific blogger and serial entrepreneur (StockTwits, a Twitter for traders, is his crown jewel), Lindzon is founder and general partner at Social Leverage, an eclectic seed fund. He typically finds entrepreneurs before they find him. Here’s what he likes: founders who show grit, solve problems and won’t crumple in chaos. Here’s what he ignores: business-news TV and spreadsheet-based decisions. His fund’s average investment: about $600,000.
In the Summer of 2006, I created Wallstrip and we aired over 300 episodes. The New York Times called it “Squawk Box Meets Saturday Night Live”. In May 2007, Wallstrip was acquired by CBS.
CBS has since decimated all of the archives, but if you search hard enough you can find a couple that survived:
My hobbies include golf and cycling. I am an empty nester (I own and operate two millennials).
I am in pursuit of the perfect sleep solution.
