Listen: Seventy Five One Hundred Million Dollars, Ten Million Dollars discussed on Capital Allocators
"I did project work for a few venture firms and eventually that led me to finding context capital partners in two thousand five with one of my co founders, what was the original context capital partners business, the original concept, which still. Continues through today was to get into the seating business. And then over time, we realized doing exceleron or deals were probably more interesting to us. But the original concept. This was oh five. So you're talking pre crash. It was pretty simple. We had lots of evidence of really smart PM's who would leave shop and they'd go. Start a lot of times with five or ten million dollars in their own count. Build a track record over year or two funded funds. Money would come flooding in if they put up good numbers. And then the institutions would pick up on it. Once they crossed seventy five one hundred million dollars. And then the money would really flow so back in those days, we thought of it really is mostly just writing a check we didn't think of it beyond that it was just pick the right horse giving the capital they need to get started. They'll build a track record if they do. Well, the money will find their way to any solid PM and post crash it completely changed. So start the pre crash so you were coming from in and around venture capital. Co system how did you shift over into doing hedge fund acceleration? My value. Add the business was primarily my relationships in the marketplace. So as a cedar I was relying on the family office that we partnered with."
