On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Adam Besvinick, Founder and Managing Partner at Looking Glass Capital.
Located in Purchase, NY, USA, Looking Glass Capital is a pre-seed and seed fund that seeks to invest in and support mission-driven founders during the earliest days of company building. They are most inspired by entrepreneurs solving today's biggest challenges across health, climate, and empowerment (education; tools and platforms for SMBs; and products that enable access, identity, or self-expression).
Adam is the Founder of Looking Glass Capital, a pre-seed fund investing as a "first yes" or lead investor in non-consensus opportunities with independent conviction. Prior to starting Looking Glass, Adam invested for five years in pre-seed through Series C companies, including Transfix, BigID, One Concern, NomNom, and Plant Prefab, at Deep Fork Capital and Anchorage Capital Group.
Adam graduated from Harvard Business School, during which he worked part-time for Lowercase Capital, Gumroad, and a couple of other early-stage companies. He also co-led By/Association, an angel investor group, which made three investments. Prior to entering business school, he was a telecom investment banker at Jefferies and graduated cum laude from Duke University in 2009.
Adam shares his thoughts about investing as an angel investor, the economic reset in the venture capital world, and what it means to be in the age of resilience.
