Christopher E. Galvin, Founder & CEO, Hypur

Episode Summary:

Builders are masters at process. They see the big picture, they deconstruct, they learn, they rebuild it better. From his childhood playing with Legos, to building service businesses as a young adult, and huge pivot to Wall Street building deals; Christopher Galvin loves to learn and build. A very successful early career earned him retirement in Scottsdale at only 42! It wasn’t long before Christopher got the urge to build again. He wanted to solve a big problem.

Actual bags of cash. That was the symptom of the big problem facing legal Cannabis businesses, regulators, and financial institutions. They themselves weren’t sure of the rules and what that solution needed to be. Christopher found his big problem to solve. He knew to lean in, to learn processes, to learn everyone’s needs, to ask better questions to get better answers. That gave him, and this team, the foresight to anticipate and become a thought leader. Hypur was the company they built to solve those problems and is now an industry leader in Cannabis Compliance & Payments.
