Deal Origination

I’ve published my research on origination for investors in illiquid assets in the Harvard Business ReviewInstitutional Investor, etc.  My original study on the topic is the #1 all-time most-read article published in the Journal of Private Equity, and I continue to write regularly on sourcing.  My primary work experience and research is with private equity and venture capital investors.
Here are two sanitized slide decks that I’ve presented at investor conferences. You can also see a short video interview .  I periodically present at investment industry conferences on origination.
