2020 Thirty Under 30: Andrew Benson

Andrew has a long history of being an entrepreneur and hard worker. During his time at The Ohio State University, he served his chapter as Vice Archon and Archon. Additionally, he served as the Chief Justice for the Interfraternal Council on his campus. Starting a young age, he has founded or co-founded several technology companies and a cybersecurity consulting firm. Most recently, Andrew co-founded River Financial — a challenger financial institution and Bitcoin brokerage that recently raised $5.7 million in its seed financing round. Based out of San Francisco, he currently serves as River’s Chief Operating Officer where he oversees the company’s day-to-day operations. His belief is that the connections and friendships he has developed through the fraternity has led the way to a large pool of talented people that he hopes to work with throughout his career.
