General Manager, Vial
Contrary has been the most impactful organization I’ve been a part of. They were instrumental in helping me land my previous product role at Faire, and have always been around to bounce startup ideas off of, too.
The Contrary team has been a pivotal partner throughout my company's journey, serving as my mentors throughout the ideation process and later as the first investors into Unlisted!
