CEO & Founder , nate
Albert Saniger is the founder & CEO at nate. An experienced coder at a young age, Albert worked through school by teaching students to code - some going on to win national competitions under his guidance. While expanding his knowledge of computing systems, these early teaching experiences also inspired an interest in furthering human potential & empowering personal achievements.
After getting his MBA at London Business School & working at Amazon, Albert set out to explore how intelligent automation could facilitate human-driven decisions. In 2018, Albert founded nate & worked with a young team of engineers to develop the app & its AI technology - introducing the first product to automate the mobile checkout process at any online retailer on behalf of a customer. By April 2020, nate had closed the largest series seed round for a consumer software company of the year & launched to the public that summer.
Albert's desire to foster individual potential extended to his approach to building his team, valuing character over experience & hiring early talent. Furthermore honoring the support he received from mentors in the beginning stages of the company, Albert established the nate career accelerator to offer students & early graduates management experience, opportunities for individual media exposure & contribution to high level brand strategy & execution.
