Today we are joined by Vivek Nasta of Scout Finance.
Scout Finance is the mobile-first company dedicated to giving fundamental investors access to stock research and data on-the-go.
Who are you and what’s your background?
My name is Vivek Nasta, and I’m the CEO and Co-Founder of Scout Finance. Before launching Scout, I was Global Head of Mobile at Thomson Reuters. Prior to that, I worked at Nokia, which as many may recall, was the world leader in mobile phones before the iPhone came on the scene . You could say that I was into “fintech” before FinTech became the buzzword that it is today.
When I started Scout, I specifically recruited former colleagues who had a deep passion for mobile. At the core of Scout, we’re mobile and finance guys that love apps and focus on creating mobile-first solutions. We don’t have any desktop heritage and we didn’t start in data. When you use Scout Finance, there are no distractions. You have the purest mobile experience possible for investors in equities.
Way back in the day, I worked in venture capital at AOL, as an analyst at Goldman Sachs, and at the White House. I studied engineering at Stanford and received an MBA from Harvard Business School.
