About Craig

I am a Lawyer who worked for over 3 years in the litigation/financial restructuring practices of large New York City corporate law firms. I have experience in bankruptcy litigation, class actions, commercial litigation and white collar defense and investigations. I also have experience dealing with opposing counsel in complex litigation. In the startup/entrepreneurial realm, I started a student marketplace and rental website while in college. I want to stress that I am looking to leave the big corporate firm environment and move to a small startup where I can really take advantage of my knowledge and creativity.

I am looking for a co-founder to join a start-up I am currently working on in the dating space. The app we are working on, which is currently in development, represents the next generation of dating apps. We have a pitch deck, financial forecast, and marketing plan all finished. We are also being co-founded (and incubated) by a tech firm that has built many apps for Fortune 500 companies.

Besides being a lawyer, I have a very advanced knowledge of social media marketing, particularly building large Instagram followings. I have built and helped to grow many Instagram accounts, including building my own person instagram account to over 75k followers in the horology/fashion niche (@wristenthusiast). I used a number of different methods to achieve this and have a pretty good grasp on social media marketing.

We are currently at the fundraising stage and are looking for someone with a good sense of business development, who has fundraised for startups before. Please reach out!
