Andrew Gowasack

President

An economist by education, Andrew began his career in financial services sales and marketing. Although Trust Stamp is Andrew’s first start-up, he has immersed himself in the lean-start-up environment by completing incubator programs through Founder’s Space in San Francisco, QC FinTech in Charlotte, Plug and Play in both Silicon Valley and the United Arab Emirates and NAR REach® in Chicago. Each of these programs has provided a unique perspective and honed a distinct set of startup skills. Prior to joining Trust Stamp, Andrew worked at Ashford Advisers, a financial services company, where he worked as a Marketing Coordinator until joining the Company. As President, Andrew oversees business development and operations and acts as Chief Product Evangelist.
