Is having a startup while in IB legal
I'm an incoming analyst at a boutique fintech firm. On the side, I've run a fintech startup for around 3 years now. I've done it long enough that I think I could still run it while on the job, but I don't want to go to jail. I will obviously disclose these business activities.
Will my firm allow this? If I wanted to raise seed funding for my startup, will that be a conflict of interest and against FINRA?
