Nate comes from an investment banking background, working for Wells Fargo, from there he joined the Silicon Valley Bank, where he worked connecting VCs to the next unicorns. However, he realised how opaque investing is, solely based on profits with no room for values. Thus Nate founded Floodlight where they expose the values of S&P 500 companies, reveal where their money goes, what party they support. Drawing on Nate's experiences, we have an amazing discussion looking into the political climate, how finance corrupts politics, and much much more.
