Construction law attorney Scott Wolfe, Jr. is the CEO and founder of Zlien, a startup that makes it easy for contractors to file mechanics liens. The firm announced today that it has received $450,000 in seed funding from the non-profit New Orleans Startup Fund to assist with growing the business:
“The Startup Fund is delighted to invest in Zlien, a business providing a turn-key service to the construction industry, helping them manage and enforce lien rights to get paid on receivables,” said Leslie Jacobs, CEO of the Startup Fund. “The Startup Fund works to accelerate the growth of high-potential companies in the Greater New Orleans region that have national—or global—aspirations. This infusion of capital will allow Zlien to create new jobs in New Orleans, in turn allowing the company to expand business nationwide.”
Zlien provides both large and small construction companies an easy, cost-effective way to collect on outstanding debts. “This is a very exciting time for Zlien. It’s our mission to make mechanics lien filing and compliance simple for the construction industry, and this funding is going to help Zlien continue its aggressive development of solutions in this space,” said Scott Wolfe, CEO of Zlien.
