Mitchell is a founder with the goal of helping all people to better save and invest for their financial future. He believes that with the right nudge (and a little help from software) his company can help people do the right thing and make money a bit less stressful. Mitchell is an Ex Facebook and Dropbox, product manager, a Yale University graduate, and a proud Ohioan by origins.
Mitchell joins me today to discuss his founder path from Yale, Facebook, Parable and now Lendtable. I open the podcast by asking why people don’t take advantage of the free retirement money their businesses offer them. Mitchell explains how pensions are a thing of the past and how the individual is now fully responsible to make all investing decisions.
“I still always knew that before I was able to start a company I needed to know how to build, I needed to be a student of the game” - Mitchell Jones
