Randall Nachman is a serial entrepreneur who can turn tragedy into opportunity.
In the early 2000s, he developed loan software to automate processes and signatures, long before electronic signatures were common. When Hurricane Katrina wiped out his New Orleans-based mortgage brokerage’s physical records, his in-house software had digital copies.
“Thankfully, all the documents were in the application. It saved my business,” Nachman says.
That experience stuck with Nachman as he moved on to other ventures. When the startup bug first hit him, he joined Nexus Louisiana Technology Park in 2008 for the resources and connections to build his loan software startup, ATLOS, which he sold in 2017.
But he knew online documents could be better. It’s why he returned to the Tech Park and decided to launch Formsio.
