Donald Stalter of Global Founders Capital

In this episode of Investor Connect, Hall is joined by Donald Stalter of Global Founders Capital. As the interview kicks off, you’ll learn more about Donald’s background before entering the early stage investment world. After graduating from the University of Chicago, Donald started out as an investment banker with Credit Suisse in the MNA group in San Francisco. While there, he handled a wide variety of deals like Google, YouTube and Google DoubleClick. This allowed him the opportunity to do deals in Brazil and in Europe, peaking his interest on the international side very early on.

Donald then joined a growth fund out of London, a spinoff of Jefferies Investment Bank where he met German entrepreneurs, the Samwar brothers. They built a business called City Deal, which was sold to Groupon very quickly.

Hall and Donald talk 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.
