What's up everybody? This is Courtland, from indiehackers.com where I talk to the founders of profitable internet businesses and I try to get a sense of how they got to where they are today.

Today I'm talking to Rachel Carpenter, the CEO of a company called Intrinio. Intrinio really does two things. Number one they have access to financial data, like stock prices and index prices, and they make this data available to developers through their API's. Number two they have apps and analytics built on top of this data which they sell to investors, who use these apps to make better investment decisions.

Now what's really cool is the story behind how they built all of this stuff. 'Cause it wasn't easy, on the contrary it was super hard, and they had to be scrappy and determined, and not give up when things got tough. So there's a lot to learn here, and I'm super excited to get into it. So, Rachel thanks for coming on the show, how you doing?
