Keep an Eye on Consigliere
Take a look at a story that brings together sports and entrepreneurship…can there be anything better? The story is called Steve Nash Drives in Venture Capital…but focus in on the mention of Consigliere, a New York-based group that plans to “invest in seed-stage, consumer-oriented companies with scalable, large-growth brand potential. It also will do select Series A and Series B deals, and occasionally sign on as a strategic partner (i.e., the consulting piece) for larger transactions. Those latter deals are designed, in part, to help forge partnerships with large brands that can help out Consigliere’s younger investments.” Mike Duda formerly one of the top folks at Deutsche, Inc. is the driving force behind this very interesting company.
