Growth

Success means

For the Bowery Capital team, success is when the entrepreneurs we invest in change the way businesses operate for the better.

Best piece of advice I have received…

My grandfather always told me to “have ice water in your veins.” It’s definitely helped me stay cool, calm and collected under pressure and during difficult times.

How I deal with failure…

Pick myself up! We’re in a business where about 80% of the companies we invest in ultimately fail, so I try hard to always be optimistic and learn from the times we did not succeed.

My morning routine is…

Lots of coffee mixed with a dose of reading both general news as well as most of the tech trades that matter in our industry. I’m a morning person, so I’m in the office pretty early meeting entrepreneurs to hear about their ideas and companies.

How I stay organized…

I’m a very neat person so it really isn’t in my nature not to be organized. I think I was born with this trait!

When things are busy, I slow down by…

Trying to focus on the things that are really going to matter at the end of the day. There are only 1-2 levers I can pull to build a successful business and be a great husband and friend, so trying to do less ultimately helps me slow down.
