Investor Connect Podcast

In this episode, Hall welcomes Daniel Hallawi of KapVista, a global platform showcasing emerging companies across 15+ countries to over 15,000 high net worth, professional, and international investors. Through an investor-focused website and tailored matchmaking, private companies can present their company to potential investors, advisors and board members. As a natural by-product, KapVista also provides a marketplace to find potential co-founders, team members, advisors, board members and individuals who can help grow the start-up ecosystem.

After leaving a successful career in the corporate world, Daniel became fascinated with the startup world. Daniel created KapVista as his response to the massive disconnect between founders and investors. He found that there was nowhere to go for founders to connect to the resources they needed to grow.

Daniel talks about what he looks for in a founder. He encourages startups to be laser-focused on investors from day one‚Äďand realize that the little things such as punctuality and follow-through matter. Daniel highlights the evolution of the VC and Private Equity space, as well as the increased competition both for investors and startups. Finally, Hall and Daniel discuss some of the hot sectors, both in the U.S. and Asia.
