Deal Origination

I published the first formal study on deal origination best practices for investors in illiquid assets (mostly private equity and VC investors) in the Journal of Private Equity, which became their #1 all-time most-read article. I’ve also published on sourcing in the Harvard Business ReviewInstitutional Investor, etc., and continue to blog regularly on identifying great investments.
I’ve posted below two sanitized slide decks on origination that I’ve presented at investor conferences, and a short video interview .
