Walter Cruttenden is a financial markets innovator, an active founder investor in growth companies that serve a social need – and passionate about history and astronomy.

Currently, Walter serves as Chairman of Acorns, a micro-investing company, which he co-founded with his son, Jeff Cruttenden, Jason Martell, and Mark Dru. Acorns is an app that enables people to save and invest in incredibly small increments, with high frequency, requiring little or no conscious effort. Walter also serves as CEO of Blast, a gamification company operating at the nexus of the Fintech and Game industries. Blast’s app features a new game dynamic that improves the financial outcome for both gamers and game companies alike.

In his early career, Cruttenden founded and served as CEO of two well-known investment banking and brokerage firms; Cruttenden Roth (now Roth Capital, active underwriters of emerging growth companies), and E*Offering, formerly the iBank arm of E*Trade Securities (since merged). As CEO, Walter led both companies through rapid growth and significant liquidity events. Walter also co-founded SRS Laboratories (since acquired by DTS), after buying the acoustic technology from Hughes, and developing it into an independent company. Cruttenden also founded one of the largest growth stock conferences in the US, now the Roth Conference.

When he is not engaged in Fintech, Walter acts as the Director of the Binary Research Institute in Newport Beach, California, which researches the cause and consequences of solar system motion.  
As part of his cosmological work Walter authored the book Lost Star of Myth and Time, the award-winning documentary film, The Great Year (narrated by James Earl Jones) and the children’s book, The Great Year Adventures: with Tommy the Time-Traveling Turtle.

"Jordan is an incredible podcaster. The show is high quality all-around, from the guests to the music to the audio quality. It is clear Jordan is passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. I've listened to 5+ in the less than 24 hours since I've discovered this show and I'll be listening to it regularly from hear on out. I listen to A LOT of podcasts (Gary Vee, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, etc.) and Jordan's show is in that upper echelon. It's a must listen!"

“Jordan is extremely passionate with a nice touch of calmness to him. He allows the guests to speak majority of the show instead of narcissistically trying to add his 2 cents in all the time and make it about him. If you’re interested in hearing substantial content from people of superb interest in today’s world, listen to this podcast.”
