“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is a reality.”

—John Lennon

Allio's team has been assembled bringing together the best minds in finance, product, design and operations to bring our users the best finance experience ever.

Joseph Gradante

CEO

Joseph is a finance vet from NYC whose Aunt & Uncle helped pioneer the formation of the early hedge fund industry. He has an extensive background in capital markets, having spent several years as a buy-side global macro strategist, sales trader, and private money manager.

Joseph is a natural entrepreneur who has had the rare privilege of experiencing the glory days of NYC sales trading before transitioning to tech and watching the formation of FinTech, giving him a unique vantage point on the space. Joseph did a triple major for his B.A. in Political Science, Economics, and Public Policy, and has successfully completed two accelerators (WTIA & Venture Out), the Y-combinator startup school, and the Wharton School FinTech Executive Program.

He currently resides in Lake Oswego, Oregon with his domestic partner (who also works in FinTech) and his playful French Bulldog, Moe.

David Chen

Principal Engineer

David is a tech enthusiast with an analytical prowess for building innovative systems. He holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from U.C. Berkeley and a Masters in Structural Engineering from MIT, but the rapidly growing web technologies inspired him to solve larger-scale problems as a full-stack software engineer.

Before co-founding Allio, David spent several years as a Senior Software Engineer at Minted, where he built integrated BIM tools and led multiple discipline teams aimed at improving user experience and conversion rates. When he is not at his computer, David enjoys hiking, snowboarding, exploring nature, and taking photos.

He currently lives in San Francisco, California.
