Mario Ruiz grew up on food stamps in the Bronx. He credits this experience to being instrumental in how he's able to manage wealth and run his investing firm, Infinity Ventures, today.
But, it's also an experience he hopes very few other Latinx people need to have. That's why, as co-founder and partner of Infinity Ventures, Mario is focused on investing in infrastructure and new companies with the mission to democratize wealth.
In this episode of The American Dream podcast, Mario explains how reselling sneakers in high school taught him the basics of investing, why having the confidence to take risks is crucial to entrepreneurship, and what we all need to do to democratize wealth.
