As a co-leader and investor with Slow Money Northern California, Arno has led multiple investments in food and ag businesses. Slow Money Northern California’s gatherings have convened over 5,000 community members over the last five years. Arno founded Credibles, a community-funding platform and app for local food businesses (if you eat, you’re an investor). Last year, these community campaigns garnered millions of deployed fundings. He co-created Investibule, a site that features current opportunities for investing in community ventures.
Previously, Arno was Executive Vice President at Union Bank ($80bn in assets). He draws on extensive expertise in market strategy, with a knack for organizational culture change. He grew up in Europe and is easily distracted by new ice cream flavors and typefaces. For updates: @arnohesse.
