Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford


Mar 5, 2018

My guest on the show today is Warren Hogarth.

Warren spent eight years as a Partner at the number one venture capital firm in the world, Sequoia Capital. 

Sequoia have invested in companies like Square, Uber, WhatsApp, and AirBnB, and Warren stood shoulder-to-shoulder with founders to build large, enduring businesses; three of them went from zero to over $1 billion.

While at Sequoia, Warren saw first-hand how fintech startups were changing the way people approached managing money, payments, and investing. 

He launched his startup, Empower Finance, in 2016 based on the belief that all people deserve access to expert financial advice.

As well as talking about Warren's experience funding startups and early stage companies at Sequoia Capital, we get into how fintech has the potential to save us money and make our relationship with money much simpler.
