Weild & Co. is the fastest investment bank in the United States. Cloud-based, it pursues a radically different model focused on aggregating, organizing and enabling skilled human capital to provide better investment banking services to the growth and middle market economy. The Company was founded a former vice chairman of NASDAQ who earlier headed a top Wall Street investment bank and helped such companies as Blackrock, Celgene, Nvidea and Chesapeake Energy in the early part of their growth cycles. His thought leadership changed the discussion in Washington and led to a wave of pro-capital formation legislation. For this reason, he is known as the “Father” of the JOBS Act.
