The founder and CEO of Aspiration, Andrei Cherny, will speak at this fall’s Pioneer Summit. The impetus behind Aspiration, which allows clients to choose the fees on their investment accounts, was to to bring the middle-class into the world of investments by letting them “pay what is fair.”
Once the youngest speechwriter for the President of the United States in American history, Andrei has led a life of impact and influence. He spent nearly twenty years working to make the financial system more open and fair. He combines a background as an advisor to some of America’s top companies, the co-founder and president of a media start-up, a financial fraud prosecutor, a historian, a White House aide, a Navy reserve officer, and a nationally-recognized economic policy expert. Andrei has provided strategic counsel to companies such as Intel, Qualcomm, and Bank of America.
Andrei also launched and grew Democracy Journal to one of the most widely read idea journals in America. There, he helped start the successful fight for the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. His 2000 book, The Next Deal, showed how business and government would be transformed by people’s demands for more and better choices. He is also the author of the The Candy Bombers. He graduated from Harvard University and from the University of California Berkeley law school.
We can’t wait to hear him speak at the Pioneer Summit on the democratizing finance for the 99%.
