Harvard’s Harding

Nathaniel Harding, Cortado Ventures managing partner, launched the rapidly growing venture capital fund in May 2020, funding entrepreneurs who have a focus on innovation in Oklahoma.

The firm set up shop overlooking the Bricktown canal, and his office is filled with reminders of his career – which is only 20 years old but is crammed-packed with enough accomplishments for three lifetimes.

Some of the highlights? Harding is one of three Oklahomans ever named to World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders. He served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force, serving in Kabul, and he’s co-founded and served in leadership positions with several oil companies and consulting firms. And most recently? He just completed the Harvard Business School Executive Education’s Global Leadership and Public Policy for the 21st Century Program.
