Dylan Beynon (born 1988) is an American technology entrepreneur[1] and investor[2] based in New York City, best known as the cofounder of Voter's Friend[3] and Mighty[4].

Early Life[edit]

Beynon worked as an actor during his childhood, appearing as "Jimmy" alongside Queen Latifah in the television series Living Single[5]. He was a Trustee Scholar at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with a B.S. in Economics[6].

Career[edit]

Voter's Friend[edit]

Beynon cofounded the civic engagement platform Voter’s Friend with Dan McLean in 2012. Described by Crunchbase as a website and app that aims to "make you an informed voter in just 10 minutes," Voter's Friend was acquired by Democracy.com[7] in 2014[8], as a part of an effort to create “the most comprehensive searchable database of American elected officials, candidates, appointees and political organizations at all levels of government.”[9]

Mighty[edit]

In 2014, alongside his cofounder Joshua Schwadron, Beynon started the litigation finance technology company Mighty "to help people get a better deal from the justice system."[10] That same year, Beynon appeared on an episode of the Bow Tie Law podcast, where he discussed the ethics of funding lawsuits[11]. Mighty's launch and funding rounds received coverage in The Wall Street Journal[12], The National Law Review[13], WIRED[14], AlleyWatch[15], Law360[16], Above the Law[17], the New York Business Journal[18], and Forbes[19]. In 2018, after receiving its Series B funding, Mighty expanded into Mighty Capital[20], a $100M investment fund to finance its customers[21].
