Born and raised in Miami to Cuban immigrants, Adrian E. Alvarez, Esq. has been involved in South Florida’s growing startup scene since the early 2010’s. Shortly after completing the University of Miami’s JD/MBA program, Adrian partnered with some fellow UM entrepreneurs to launch Accredify in 2013, the first full-scale accredited investor verification service aimed at the newly passed 506c regulations. Since then, Accredify, now known as InvestReady, has grown into its own, verifying thousands of investors worldwide and working with huge partners including Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. Adrian transitioned from COO to CEO in 2018. He currently lives in Los Angeles but visits Miami frequently for work and family. He’s hyper focused on making InvestReady’s platform the best verification tool for private equity raises and security tokens.
