Charise Flynn, owner and founder of C.Results, LLC, has over 20 years of experience cultivating companies from the ground up. Charise lends her expertise to CEO’s/entrepreneurs by guiding them through the journey of establishing a strategy that ultimately positions them to raise capital; growing teams in a way that makes sense while balancing future needs and budgets; and helping them create a culture that ultimately positions them to execute effectively.

At Dwolla, she established and led teams in the areas of finance, legal, compliance, risk, customer support and human resources.
