10 minutes with...StepLadder

This week’s episode of Ten minutes with… we’re joined by the co-founders of StepLadder, Matthew Addison and Lucy Mullins. StepLadder is on a mission to help people achieve their dream of owning their own home.

 Matthew Addison, Co-founder & CEO

Matthew started StepLadder to make a lasting positive impact on UK first-time home buyers and fix a broken system.  Originally from California, Matthew’s spent nearly 15 years in finance and investments in London at firms including Cheyne Capital, where he was a partner. He began his career at Goldman, Sachs in New York.

StepLadder is his second mission-driven start-up, the first (LevelAccess) being founded, while still at Stanford, to empower technology compatibility for people with disabilities. The StepLadder circles model comes from his Wharton MBA/MA graduate school work in Brazil and faith in collaborative finance.
