Will Culler-Chase is an investment professional focused on food and agriculture. He sees finance as a powerful tool in shifting the food system away from extractive, linear models to ones that create long-term value for a broader set of stakeholders. He recently founded a specialty finance company, Multistrata, serving small and mid-sized organic farms. Working with downstream partners in the supply chain, it provides low-cost working capital financing to a customer base that has been neglected by traditional capital providers. Previously, Will held various roles with investment management firms in the US and in Europe. Most recently he was based in Paris, helping Prudential Private Capital grow its private credit platform internationally. He is a board member and investor at Slow Money Northern California, where he helps organize events that promote the work of local food system entrepreneurs. Will holds a degree in art history from Brown University in Providence, RI.
