Andrew Gowasack

President: Chief Evangelist

An economist by training, Andrew began his career in financial services sales and marketing. Gareth and Andrew have been friends for several years and explored a number of ideas before identifying the unparalleled potential of Trust Stamp. Although Trust Stamp is Andrew’s first startup, he has immersed himself in the lean-startup environment by completing incubator programs through Founder’s Space in San Francisco, QC FinTech in Charlotte and NAR REach in Chicago. Each of these programs has provided a different perspective and honed a different set of startup skills.
