According to Newchip Founder and CEO Ryan Rafols, “We’re honored to be ranked amongst the top startups of 2017. We believe we’re standing on a new horizon where the masses finally get to invest in what they believe in. Whether it’s the latest technology startup, a local craft brewery, or even cryptocurrency, the ability to generate generational wealth is now accessible to everyone.” Rafols recently received acclaim by the Founders Institute for giving “the best how to raise” talk they've seen in years at Amazon Startup Day.
