Thanks again for tuning into this week’s episode of PitchIt. I sat down with Alex Liegl, Co-Founder and CEO of Tenet.

Tenet is changing the way consumers buy and finance electric vehicles. Financing through Tenet will enable consumers to save hundreds of dollars every month, track their carbon emission savings and vehicle performance, and help them achieve their sustainability goals.

Tenet is ultimately a technology platform that enables investors to fund consumer loans to buy EVs.

Alex and I discuss his journey to Tenet from Stanford Business School, the motivations behind building Tenet, where the climate economy stands today, why using Tenet in a recession would make even more sense, raising capital, and much more.

Before you begin the episode, please take a minute to rate the show and provide feedback. I take listener comments very seriously. And don’t forget to join us in Miami on December 13 – 14 for Fintech Nexus LatAm; this is LatAm’s premier fintech event.

Without further ado, I present Alex Liegl, Co-Founder & CEO of Tenet. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
