oday's episode is an exciting one for me personally.

I brought on Niklas James and Max Lummis, my 2 partners in Minds Capital, a fund we've recently launched to invest in the deals of searchers & sponsors.

This is the formal announcement of a project one year in the making.

Now I didn't want this to just be a self-promotional episode, so we make a point to discuss Minds Capital in a way that is valuable to you.

We talk about:

  • how a fund comes together,
  • why we would want to raise a fund,
  • what it was like to ourselves raise money from investors (the LPs),
  • how the perspective as an investor differs from that of a business buyer (listen closely there),
  • why small acquisitions are hard for a fund to invest in,
  • and much more.

As you'll hear me say at the end, I'm thrilled to be partnered with Max & Niklas, who have years of experience and relationships in our space, but just as important, if not more so, 2 individuals I consider of the highest caliber.

To learn more about what we're doing, or if you have a deal under LOI that you're raising money for, see MindsCapital.co.

OK, please enjoy this conversation with Max Lummis, Niklas James, and me, the 3 general partners of Minds Capital:
