Dan Long on The Deal

September 01, 2023
by: Cohen Circle Team

Before Dan was an investor, he was an operator himself.

On this episode of The Deal, Dan shares how his experience building PeerIQ (which was acquired by CrossRiver Bank) influences his investment frameworks at Cohen Circle today, the nuance of innovating in a heavily regulated industry, how building a VC firm is quite similar to launching a startup, and transformational shifts he expects to emerge in fintech in the decade to come. 

Partner at Cohen Circle FinTech Ventures, Dan Long, sits down with Antler's Tyler Norwood on The Deal Podcast.

In this episode:

  • Dan's playbook for founders in a regulated space (hint: DON'T break things fast) 
  • Why the banking infrastructure layer is ripe for innovation 
  • What we can learn from the crypto crisis 
  • And why Gen Z might be the generation most comfortable sharing their data
