[Replay] #12 - Sam Restagno, Managing Director of Golden Spruce Capital. Perseverance to I-Banking, Starting a Fund and Investing in Small Businesses
Join in for a conversation with Sam Restagno, Managing Director at Golden Spruce Capital, a private investment company that focuses on buying small businesses with an EBITDA of 1-5MM. In our chat Sam takes me through how he persevered through to get into investment banking, and the process of making the decision to leave the plush expense account and comfy banking world to ultimately start a 2 person fund with his business partner. We go through the world of small company investing, the importance of relationship building, the opportunity size, the various funding options and the frugality and hustle you need as founders. I personally got a lot of value out of this chat and even if you aren't someone who isn't hell-bent on running your own investment company in the future I think you'll be able to extract lot's of value out of my chat with Sam. Hope you enjoy.
