Dan Armstrong and Keith Mattox worked together in New York City at the Globecon Group, which went out of business on 9/11.

Born in the era of US bank deregulation, the Globecon Group gave commercial loan officers the skills to advise companies on a broad range of corporate finance, capital markets and derivatives tools. Dan and Keith learned about the internet together by bringing Globecon's educational guides and diagnostics to the web in the form of Fintranet, an online training platform that we built from the ground up starting in 1998.

Dan later went to The Economist, where he wrote about finance, analytics, and risk and compliance. At Deloitte he developed cybersecurity and disease tracking dashboards for NIST and NIH. He now has his own company (https://analyzethis.net/) and focuses on Fintech, as well as writing for Forbes on AI and process automation.

Dan holds an MA from Hunter College and an MBA in Finance and Research Methods from Columbia University.
