Ben Furtado

Ben’s background lies at the intersection of finance and technology. As the first finance hire at Luminar Technologies (NAS: LAZR), he built out the original financial and operational models leveraged to raise significant capital and scale the autonomous vehicle hardware and software technology company over 10x in both headcount and valuation. Today, Luminar is a publicly traded company with a market cap of over $8 billion.

Experience & Activities

Ben left Luminar to become an original member of an investment bank where he worked on their very first transaction and roughly half a billion worth of total software M&A transactions during his tenure. He has since departed the bank to provide a wider variety of independent financial services in partnership with Midas. He holds a B.A. in Finance from the University of Central Florida
