Howard has more than 20 years experience in the financial community acting in both an entrepreneurial and investing capacity. With a unique vision for starting, managing, and successfully advising innovative companies, Lindzon is the public face of the Social Leverage entities. Lindzon co-founded StockTwits, named “one of the top 10 most innovative companies in web” by Fast Company and one of the “50 best websites” by Time (where he invented the “cashtag”). Previously, he created more than 400 original videos on Wallstrip, acquired by $CBS. Lindzon stepped down from his operational role as CEO of StockTwits on December 31, 2013, to focus on the next phase of Social Leverage. As acting Chairman, Lindzon’s connection to StockTwits (along with his hedge fund experience) gives Social Leverage access to a community of professionals who can evaluate fintech opportunities.
