"Zack created a process and provided forms for my growing start-up to be better organized and protected with respect to hiring outside vendors and contractors to provide services for us. He explained what to look for in RFP responses, and advised us on best paths forward. We were very spoiled when we had Zack help us out and cannot recommend him enough."
