Episode #3 : Servicing Hundreds of Privately and Publicly Traded Companies With VStock Transfer
Seth currently serves as the Co-Chairman and President of Vstock Transfer which services 800 hundred private and publicly traded companies.
Where Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Seth — a father of seven and grandfather of one — now lives in Woodmere with his wife and children. An active member of the Aish Kodesh community, Seth strives to lead a balanced life of Torah, chesed, business, and family (and basketball!).
“Networking is underutilized. Meaningful relationships and contacts in the business arena are some of the most valuable assets you can build.” – Seth
His most resounding failure… “A long, long time ago — back in the olden days, before the first app launch in July 2008 — I launched a company called WeightView. It was a site where someone could upload a photo of themselves, indicate how much weight they wanted to lose, and our platform would send them a digitized photo of themselves at their desired weight goal. The service was free. And the media coverage was overwhelming. Until I decided to charge a fee for the service. At that point, the only thing I heard was crickets. No one signed up, and shortly thereafter I shut down the business.”
