zlien's cloud-based platform makes lien rights easy, building a fair payment process for the construction industry.

Construction firms, contractors, suppliers, lenders, owners, and other project stakeholders nationwide use zlien to eliminate the administrative headaches and legal guesswork associated with lien waiver exchanges, preliminary notices, and mechanics lien compliance, enabling them to minimize financial risk and achieve a more seamless, transparent, and fair payment process.

Scott has led zlien through two rounds of venture capital financing, raising over $7 million in outside investment from national venture capital firms like Altos Ventures and Brick & Mortar Ventures.

zlien is a natural combination of Scott’s life experience. His father and grandfather were general contractors, out of law school he practiced construction law as founding partner of Wolfe Law Group, and since high school he’s owned and operated a software and design company, The Web Lab.

Recognized by New Orleans City Business as an “Innovator of the Year” and part of their “Leadership in Law Hall of Fame,” Scott has been on the Silicon Bayou 100 list every year since 2014, is a winner of Idea Village & Jim Coulter’s IDEAPitch, is the ACG’s reigning Emerging Growth Company, and a Junior Achievement Rising Star.

Hey! I'm Jason, and I've lived in New Orleans for about 18 months, originally hailing from Santa Clarita, California (where a zombified Drew Barrymore currently hunts for brains on Netflix.) Before moving here, my wife and I spent two years living in Brisbane, Australia making friends with koalas and avoiding the vast array of wildlife intent on hurting humans. Things I like: watching baseball (go Dodgers!), playing softball poorly, and also playing the drums poorly. Now that I think about it, maybe what I really like is just hitting things with sticks? Anyway, I'm now a zlien Customer Success Account Manager and I'm happy to be a part of the team!
