Episode 212: Albert Saniger, Founder & CEO of Nate

Albert Saniger is the founder and 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 and empowering personal achievements.

After getting his MBA at London Business School and working at Amazon, Albert set out to explore how intelligent automation could facilitate human-driven decisions. In 2018, Albert founded nate and worked with a young team of engineers to develop the app and 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 and 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, and 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 and early graduates management experience, opportunities for individual media exposure, and contribution to high-level brand strategy and execution.

Albert has been vocal on the topics of workforce transformation, inclusive work culture, and leading a new social age of eCommerce and has been featured as a speaker at Brown Entrepreneurship Program and Dive In podcast, Yale’s Elmseed Enterprise Fund, Columbia Organization of Rising Entrepreneurs, and other distinct communities and institutions including NYU, Wharton, Fordham, Stanford Business School, Syracuse University’s iSchool, Rutgers, and others.
