Pry announced in August that it raised a $4.2m seed round from investors at Global Founders Capital, Liquid2, Pioneer Fund, Y Combinator, Hyphen Capital, Walter Chen, and others.
I had the opportunity to speak with Andy Su, one of the co-founders, on several occasions.
Pry was founded in March of 2020 to build a new tool for founders to manage their finances. Early-stage founders need to manage cash flow, attract funding, and prove business profitability.
Here's a little bit about Pry from Andy Su.

What are some lessons you have learned along the way?
Early on with Pry, I tried to do everything myself. I didn’t think I could convince my friends to work with me or investors to fund me. Now, I realized a lot of what prevented me from moving faster was just my own thoughts and self-doubt. If I were to do things over, I would be able to move much quicker just by asking for help from the community.
What’s next for your company?
Getting funded is just the start. We’ll continue to improve our product and build a killer app.
