Brian A. Smith is the Co-Founder and CEO of RedCrow™ Inc. direct investment and marketing platform presenting professionally vetted investment opportunities in innovative healthcare startups to an accredited crowd of investors. Backing a vision with social impact is at the heart of RedCrow™ investing.
Prior to RedCrow™ Brian was a Financial Advisor with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, advising high net worth families. During that time he and his wife experienced the tragic loss of their first child 24 weeks into the pregnancy. It was at that pivotal moment when Brian decided to channel his investment career into meaningful work helping other families who experience complicated pregnancies. Brian left Morgan Stanley and adopted an active role in MindChild Medical, a pioneer in the development of non-invasive fetal heart monitoring. This experience and the writing of the 2012 JOBS Act had Brian began to envision a day when crowdfunding would evolve into an equity based model vs donation based . So in 2015, alongside Jerry Harrison, Brian founded RedCrow™ with a mission to democratize the investment process for people otherwise shut out of early-stage investing opportunities. He resides in Mill Valley, CA with his wife and two daughters.
