Technology is growing more advanced every day. With so many startups developing revolutionary products, systems, and services, it’s become difficult to keep up with the rush of innovation. Veteran-turned investor and advisor Joseph Lizyness feels grateful to be living through such an exciting time in the development of tech. “There are new opportunities popping up every day. New technologies, new investments, new companies that need a bit of guidance. It’s a great time to be in the tech space.”

Joseph’s Journey to Success

Joseph is a US Army veteran, entrepreneur, advisor, business consultant, angel investor for tech startups, author, and co-founder of the renowned Eagle Atlas consulting firm. His journey began when he joined the Army at 18, going on to serve 4 years as an intelligence analyst. Though he initially struggled to transition to the civilian world after his time in the Army, he went on to work as a contractor at FBI Quantico, which he felt was “a perfect fit” for him.

Thinking back on the journey so far, Joseph notes that “It’s been kind of a rollercoaster.” In his capacity as a startup advisor, Joseph offers guidance to tech startups on raising equity crowdfunding through sites like wefunder.com, republic.co, and startengine.com. As an angel investor, he supported prominent tech startups such as Snowball, a company that is currently changing the world with decentralized finance.

Taking Companies to the Top

His successes as an investor and advisor have brought him some renown, and with his extensive experience and credentials, it’s obvious that he’s worked hard to earn it. In college, he earned an MBA with a concentration in Management, as well as a BS in Business Administration. He’s been a consultant to the US Government in various roles, particularly in Project Management, and he sits on several advisory boards. 

Joseph is now the proud co-founder of Eagle Atlas, a consulting firm that specializes in advising clients on setting productive goals, making big career changes, and running companies of various sizes and stages of development. Their goal is to help individuals and companies find the right direction and maximize their potential. Eagle Atlas offers an online Blueprint to Success tool to help individuals and companies of all sizes obtain their goals. The blueprint is available for all to use on their website.

Boosting the Industry with New Investments

Joseph released his first book, Angel Investing with $100, in February of this year. In it, he teaches readers how to accumulate generational wealth through investments in tech startups. He hopes that the book will show ordinary people that entering the realm of investment is more accessible than most people think, and it can benefit more than just the rich. With this, Joseph hopes not only to inspire a new generation of investors, but to spark a new influx of cash for the next wave of tech companies; in this way, he can make a much wider impact on the growth of the tech industry as a whole.

Finding the Next Path to Success

Joseph is always looking for the next great opportunity. After his successes in investment and advising, he is aiming to become a venture capital partner at some point in the next few years, either at a preexisting firm or a firm of his own. With his passion and excitement for the burgeoning industry, he’ll be keeping a close eye on developments in the tech sphere. He believes that new technologies such as decentralized finance and the Metaverse have the capacity to reshape many of our modern industries, and Joseph is excited to be along for the ride.
