On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes back Brian Parks, Founder & CEO of Bigfoot Capital.

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and founded in 2017, Bigfoot has provided over $30M in non-dilutive capital commitments to growth-stage software companies across the U.S. Their relationships with their portfolio companies tend to last 2 to 3 years and they are instrumental in supporting companies to get to subsequent capital raises or M&A transactions.

Brian founded Bigfoot after having been an operator in early-stage software companies since 2010. During that time, Brian was Co-Founder & CEO of Brandfolder (acquired by Smartsheet), an executive team member at a marketplace lending business, and employee #1 at an online travel distribution company.

Prior to that, he was an M&A investment banker and a commercial banker.

Over the course of his career, Brian has been involved in multiple financings and acquisitions totaling north of $500M.

Brian gives an update on what he has been doing since the last interview, discusses what he is passionate about and shares some of the challenges startups and investors face.
