Artist & Investor
Will Nathan is the co-founder of Object Limited, a shoppable field guide for sourcing secondhand treasure. Prior to Object, he co-founded Homepolish – a nationwide, one-stop, interior design startup – and bootstrapped it to 50 employees and nearly two million Instagram followers. Will started his career as a self-taught software engineer at BuzzFeed after working on $1BN of technology mergers & acquisitions in San Francisco.
When he wasn't hunting for vintage or making art (or perhaps, art making him?), he invested in the next generation of founders as a Partner at Trail Mix Ventures and was Chairman of The Current and a member of The Whitney Museum's Digital Art Acquisition Committee.
He was schooled at Wake Forest University magna cum laude with a B.S. in Mathematical Economics on a Presidential Scholarship for music. Before the iPhone existed, Will was a New York All-State French Horn performer and proudly came in last place at every cross-country meet amongst those who didn't walk.
Read about him in Forbes, The New York Times, Racked, and Nylon Guys. For a hot second he turned BuzzFeed's homepage into a time machine. Watch him on Fox Business, Bloomberg, talk about digital art at Google, and be voted "Out" by 70% of viewers on CNBC's Power Pitch.
