Dec 3, 2019

See Full Show Notes here:

Doug Lessing is the founder of Phin, which is a social good platform that great companies can use to build meaningful relationships with people and causes through sponsored donations. Doug founded it in early 2019 after having spent 30 years with his incredible team building Firebrand Technologies, a software services company for book publishers. 

Doug is a resident of Blue Point, New York. He is married to his wife, Grace; they have three Gen Z daughters and two young female Springer spaniels. He refers to himself as being outnumbered and influenced by strong women, which was a major inspiration for founding Phin in the first place.

In this episode, we discuss Doug’s transition to a social impact company after having grown up in Fire-Brand Technologies; Doug’s personal approach as an entrepreneur; how he attempts to create a space for creative thinking and deep focus; the work that is going to really move Phin forward; and how Phin was created to be a social impact organization from the get-go.
