With growing consumer interest in how to save and invest during this downturn caused by the global pandemic, Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar enlists Acorns CEO Noah Kerner as the next guest in our “Leadership Lessons” series. Founded in 2012, the popular fintech company has leveled the playing field for millions of Americans, helping 8.2M people save and invest over $7B. The easy-to-use micro-investing app allows people to build wealth naturally, pennies at a time. Everyday purchases are rounded up to the nearest dollar and then automatically invested in a low-cost, diversified portfolio of exchange-traded funds. In addition to sharing the steps to Acorns’ success story, Kerner will discuss how his colorful background (former DJ for Jennifer Lopez and co-author of a book with the CEO of Barneys) and experience building, advising and investing in a variety of fast-growing startups (including WeWork, where he served as its first Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer) informs how he leads today. The four-time entrepreneur will also share his best practices on the following topics:

  • The keys to growing wealth in 2021
  • Creating a clear vision for your mission and product
  • Long-term growth (fast vs thoughtful, focused vs multiple product streams)
  • Building a team culture and attracting the best talent
  • Pitching strategic investors, VCs, and celebrities
