I haven’t posted, tweeted, commented, attended angel meetings, or otherwise engaged in weeks. And most likely I won’t be for several more weeks, as… I’m starting a new company! It’s called FX Aligned, and it will introduce 3rd party trading desk services for institutional investors in the world’s biggest market, the $4-5 trillion DAILY foreign exchange market. And just like Jake and Elwood, the Blues Brothers, I’m “on a mission from God, and I’m getting the band back together again.”
The company just incorporated, I’ve been busy with all the prosaic annoyances like finding office space, lining up credit cards, filing 83(b) paperwork, etc. Don’t even have a landing page up yet on fxaligned.com. While I actually have some backlog of first drafts of blogposts, I’m not going to spend time on polishing them up until I need a break…which may not be until the snow flies. In the meantime, you can always see who I’m following on Twitter–it’s all startup stuff–and let me know what I’m missing.
And you can help me–I’m a big believer that stealth is bad, ideas are cheap, and it’s all about execution. If you know of people who are fluent in the world of foreign exchange, please introduce me. While it’s a cousin of securities lending, where I spent the last 10 years, I’ve still got lots to learn, and I’m looking forward to diving in.
Thanks in advance,
