Walter Cruttenden: Ancient History - Modern Investing


Walter Cruttenden

Ancient History - Modern Investing

Walter Cruttenden’s Inside Edge  presentation will take an incisive look at pre-Dark-Age cultures, their inventions and lost wisdom. He will specifically examine ancient knowledge of cycles and, using examples, how they predicted the current era.
Surprisingly, the talk will end with how we can use this insight to select winning trends in technology and private and public markets today.
Cruttenden directs the Binary Research Institute in Newport Beach, which researches the cause and consequences of solar system motion. As part of this cosmological work, Walter authored the book Lost Star of Myth and Time and wrote the award-winning documentary film, The Great Year (narrated by James Earl Jones) as well as the children’s book The Great Year Adventures with Tommy the Time-Traveling Turtle.
Cruttenden is also co-founder and chairman of Acorns, a micro-investing company with five million customers, CEO and founder of Blast, a gamification company operating at the nexus of the Fintech and Game industries, and chairman of Ant, a company helping people monetize their own data. The common theme is each company helps people generate micro-income.
According to a quote in the online Oxford Dictionary: ‘Gamification is simple common sense - why not apply decades of games industry design and experience to non-game businesses and software in order to attract users?

In his early career, Cruttenden founded and served as CEO of Roth Capital, a leader in funding emerging growth companies since 1983, and E*Offering, formerly the iBank arm of E*Trade Securities.

As CEO, Cruttenden led both companies through rapid growth and significant liquidity events. After acquiring the acoustic technology from Hughes, he also co-founded SRS Laboratories (since acquired by DTS) and developed it into an independent company.
