With the recent launch of the KoreConX all-in-one platform, KoreConX is happy to feature the partners contributing to its ecosystem.
Steve Distante is an entrepreneur and has been his entire life. As a graduate of St. Johns University with a degree in accounting and finance, he intimately knows their struggles and success. Before starting his own business, Steve ran an Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (OSJ), where he learned the experience from the regulatory side. It was a great use of his degree and his intrinsic skill for planning.
Steve’s journey began when his father told him to look at financial services as a career path. What he found was the rewarding business of empowering entrepreneurs to create impactful products and services for good. That is at the core of the business he founded and is the CEO, Vanderbilt Financial Group, “an investment firm disrupting traditional finance by focusing on socially and environmentally responsible, ethical, and impactful investments.” With Steve at the helm, the ship is set up to ensure that entrepreneurs do not have to go through the same struggles he did as he grew his business.
As if it was not already clear that helping entrepreneurs is a driving factor in his life, Steve is also the CDO for Impact U, an educational community for students, investors, and financial advisors on impact investing. He has made two documentary films for it and is currently writing a book about Impact Investing. In addition, Steve is a former president of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization and served as the UN Ambassador for EO for nearly three years. He is very passionate about helping entrepreneurs building impactful companies with missions to better the world.
Steve is thrilled about the partnership with KoreConX to streamline business processes so he can continue his excellent work for the community of entrepreneurs around the world.
