We're continuing our series of interviewing some of the smartest corporate investors at some of the largest firms in the financial industry. I'm trying to understand their process, the *why* behind their investment strategies, and how their firms use investing as part of their innovation programs.
This week's guest on the podcast is Dan Reed, managing director of American Family Ventures. As a corporate investor at insurer American Family, he's looking for early stage technology firms that can help the firm modernize its distribution while remaining true to the legacy of the agents who helped build his business.
