Nimble Hippo Radio caught up with Michael Katchen, the founder & CEO of Canadian startup Wealth Simple.

Wealth Simple is experiencing explosive growth, and though they are a young company they’re thinking hard about the future and how to maintain an innovative culture as they expand. Also, they’re in financial services: making it easy for young professionals to invest money means navigating a challenging regulatory environment, and Katchen has worked with lots of large firms on corporate innovation as he disrupts his way through the financial sector.

Hear his advice for big companies trying to innovate, why he thinks it’s natural for Wealth Simple to team up with huge companies like Power Financial Corporation, why he’s kept his business in Canada and how he attracts top talent to his headquarters in Toronto.
