Session Information

Max has been building and scaling businesses in the B2B space for nearly two decades, first as the founder of LSQ Funding Group and more recently as the founder of Viewpost. He is CEO of both companies. In creating LSQ Funding Group, Max set out to help small to midsize businesses access working capital through quick and efficient invoice financing. Fueled by referral relationships with the nation’s leading banks, including U.S. Bank and Bank of America, LSQ to date has provided more than $14 billion in financing to small businesses. The scale and structure of financing operations at LSQ placed it at the epicenter of the B2B market’s transactional inefficiency. Max saw the opportunity amid the arcane, largely paper-based methods many businesses still use to send, receive and make payment, and launched Viewpost. Viewpost offers businesses of every size, across AR/AP, a secure business network that removes the barriers to exchanging invoices and payments electronically. The network connects businesses and people to data that is used to improve efficiency, enable collaboration and optimize cash flow management, while drastically reducing the need for paper-based processes. Recognizing the shared interest between Viewpost and financial institutions, Max and his leadership team forged partnerships with U.S. Bank, Fifth Third Bank, and more, aiming to accelerate the elimination of paper invoices and payments for every business, big or small. Viewpost's exclusive U.S. partnership with Visa also highlights his team's commitment to changing the face of small business bill payment. To date, the total invoices presented and payments processed over the network have exceeded $85.3 billion. To feed the rapid growth of LSQ Funding Group and Viewpost, Max has raised more than $240 million in equity capital.
