Hall is joined by Donald Stalter of Global Founders Capital. As the episode kicks off, we learn about Donald’s background before entering the early stage investment world. Donald started out after graduating from the University of Chicago as an investment banker at Credit Suisse in the MNA group in San Francisco. While there, he handled deals like Google, YouTube and Google DoubleClick which offered a wide variety as well as offering the opportunity to do deals in Brazil and in Europe. This peaked his interest on the international side very early on. Donald then joined a growth fund out of London, a spinoff of Jefferies Investment Bank. In this episode, you’ll also learn about Donald’s investment focus on consumer businesses and a little about what he is currently working on. Hall and Donald speak about emerging areas in the blockchain sector, his advice to those investing in the blockchain startup world as well as his views on where he sees it going and evolving.
