About this event

Jeff Cruttenden co-founded Acorns to simplify investing and connect it to everyday life. In college, he noticed most of his classmates had an interest in investing, but couldn't come up with a lump sum to meet the minimum balance requirements. Acorns makes investing effortless. Jeff graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Mathematics from Lewis & Clark College. Jeff serves as COO of Acorns.
