Investor Connect Podcast

In this episode, Hall welcomes Bader Alam of CAVU Venture Partners. CAVU Venture Partners is a consumer-focused investment firm founded by operators, that aims to partner with operators in building high-growth and disruptive businesses. They are partners and operators first, investors second. Bader is the Senior Vice President at CAVU and has over 10 years of private equity experience, focusing on growth equity and middle-market transactions primarily in the consumer sector.

In this episode, Bader shares his thoughts on how the consumer product sector is growing and his advice to those wanting to invest in consumer brands. According to Bader, as an investor, the consumer-product space is interesting because you have a product you can touch and feel, and it's very easy to just have an affinity for a product. It's important to base decisions on all factors, though, and not just on the product itself.

There are some statements I’ve never heard a startup Investor ever say.

Here are some of them:

No startup investor ever said:

-I hear way too often from that startup that I invested in.

-There are so many good deals to invest in- where do I start?

-The payback on that startup investment came fast.

-Of course the startup hit their forecast- they all do

-I love leading new investments.

-Due Diligence is fun.
