Dan Ciporin on investing in fintech
Dan Ciporin, Canaan Partners

If you were to put together an all-star team of fintech investors, you’d also want to include Dan Ciporin from Canaan Partners. He was the first institutional investor in Lending Club and has a portfolio that includes CircleUp, Orchard, borro, and direct match. You can see the marketplace finance and marketplace lending theme played out in his investments.

Dan joins us on this week’s episode of the Tradestreaming Podcast. We talk about a variety of different things: first and foremost, we talk about his investments, why he made them, and what he’s looking at investing in in the future. We talk about his background — how being the CEO of Shopping.com and selling it to eBay and his previous experience at MasterCard influenced his perspective on consumer credit and its investability.

It’s a great episode and glad you’ve joined us. Now, here’s our interview with Dan Ciporin of Canaan Partners.

Listen to the FULL episode

In this episode, Dan shares:

  • why fintech is just at the beginning stages of opportunity
  • what it will take for finance to catch up with other industries online and digital
  • what it takes to disrupt the way people and institutions conduct financial services
  • why he likes marketplace lending and consumer lending, in particular
  • what he saw in Lending Club when he became the first institutional investor in the marketplace lender in 2007
  • why public markets don’t fully understand Lending Club or marketplace finance
  • where he’s looking to invest new money within financial services
  • how Dan’s experience running the debit group at MasterCard and his CEO experience IPO’ing Shopping.com influences his investment philosophy
