In this episode Hall is joined by Wayne Wu of VMG Partners. We kick off this episode learning about Waynes background before VMG Partners. Wayne offers his advice on entering the CPG space as an angel or VC who has not been previously. He speaks about investors being able to separate their personal viewpoints and being more of an objective investor. Hall and Wayne speak about VMG Partners and how the company invests and what they tend to focus on. VMG works intimately with founders and leaders of branded consumer product companies, providing the resources and guidance needed to propel them to their next level of growth and value.
