[podcast] Canaan Partners’ Dan Ciporin on investing in marketplace lending
We’ve explored various themes on investing in financial technology on this show. We’ve interviewed Caribou Honig at QED Investors. We’ve also spoken to to Foundation Capital’s Charles Moldow. [caption id="attachment_6924" align="alignright" width="250"]Dan Ciporin on investing in fintech Dan Ciporin, Canaan Partners[/caption] 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.
