Entrepreneurship is in our DNA. From our founding partners that started and exited their own businesses to our many operating partners and strategic advisors that worked under entrepreneurs like Sam Walton and J.B. Hunt as they grew their companies to Fortune 500 level. The most rewarding part of my work is being able to take that experience and apply it to help other entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.
