Jake Bornstein, Senior Associate Slow Money, "worked as part of a small inner team of investment associates at the $130 billion hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, building out a systematic picture of the financial world, refining Bridgewater’s trading strategies and providing strategic advice to large institutional investors. Increasingly convinced of the need to change both the financial and socio-ecological systems, Jake embarked on a research journey across organic farms, forest gardens, eco-villages and transition towns, culminating in a permaculture design certificate from the Permaculture Institute of Italy. Prior to his career at Bridgewater, Jake graduated A.B. summa cum laude from Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of public policy, with thesis work focused on the viability of microfinance in the United States, and a minor in continental philosophy."
