In their own words
Penny Jar is the best partner we could’ve ever hoped for. They started providing value long before we finalized their investment and continue to be supportive and available when we need them. Bryant and Rich understand our business, our vision, and our industry. They also constantly challenge us with thoughtful discussions, helping us become the best at what we do. We are very excited to be part of the Penny Jar family!Alfonso Olvera Co-Founder and CEO, tokenproof

Their contributions to Guild have significantly exceeded their invested capital.Rachel Carlson Co-Founder and CEO, Guild

They’re amazing.Maria Colacurcio CEO, Syndio
