Investor Connect Podcast

In this episode, Hall welcomes Charles Sidman, Managing Partner and Member of ECS Capital Partners.

ECS is a fund that invests in a wide range of enterprises from early-stage Angel start-ups, to later Venture-stage or even public growth companies, focusing completely on investor returns (Internal Rate of Return).

Charles’ career path is vast and includes building computers to becoming a professor and performing scientific research. He is a financially-oriented investor with two filter systems and explains his approach to investing and the four criteria that must be in place in order for him to consider investing.

He is very excited about discovery and application, and investing, participating, supporting and working with companies that are going to change the world and make it a better place.  

Although Charles is an avid traveller and has seen startups all over the world, he sees many similarities amongst them.

He gives advice for both investors and entrepreneurs and speaks about the big changes he sees in the startup industry.
