That’s what we do, day in and day out. All to ensure our efforts help send you well past your finish line … whatever that may be.

Kyle Brennan

Russell Day

Portfolio CFO

Russell’s love of startups is contagious. Having worked in big corporate settings, he saw creativity and problem solving get stifled. So the fact that he gets to be part of helping new businesses grow into their full potential is especially rewarding for him. Ever since he was a budding professional, Russel has had the mentality of “fail fast and learn along the way.” And he channels this drive with every client, helping businesses find that sweet spot between operations and product/market fit.

Her process and precision are uncanny sometimes. For Eve, she believes the key to a startup transforming themselves is to design the right system and processes early on. And that’s exactly what she helps her clients do. And they love her for it.

Katy Akele

Operations Manager

Katy is our Startup Swiss Army Knife. She does everything on the backend for our company. Literally. Everything. She is truly what keeps Ralston running smoothly on a day-to-day basis. Without her astute organizational skills, sharp intuition and impressively nimble mind, we’d all be working stuffy corporate jobs instead of working in the exciting world of startup. Literally.
