About BC

I bring a diverse background of financial and investing expertise, on both the buy and sell sides. I've been a private equity investor for the last 6+ years, focused exclusively on the domestic lower middle market. Prior to that, I worked on lower middle market M&A transactions at a well known, top-tier investment bank. During college, I was a member of a homeland security solutions technology startup, and also helped to launch a seed-stage venture fund located in a non-traditional market.

While I have developed a strong financial background and an excellent network in the PE/VC space, I'm interested in scratching my persistent entrepreneurial itch. I have a number of concepts that I've been researching, but I lack the technical development expertise to develop prototypes for these projects. Ideally, I'd find a partner in Chicago who is interested in trading ideas and working together to launch one or more projects in the near future.

I think that team chemistry between co-founders is of the utmost importance, so I'm looking for some one who is interested in building a lasting company as opposed to just collecting a development fee and moving on.
