Craig Cummings of Moonshots Capital
In this episode, Hall interviews Craig Cummings, co-founder of Moonshots Capital. West Point graduates, Craig and his co-founder Kelly Perdew form close working relationships with the companies they back to help them achieve their critical milestones and frequently take on board seats or formal advisory roles. Moonshots often backs companies led by military veteran entrepreneurs.
Craig talks about Moonshots’ thesis, ‘extraordinary leadership’, and how that informs their investing. Hall and Craig discuss the ideal leadership qualities that serve as the cornerstones of success in entrepreneurship, and how entrepreneurs with a military background can be a natural fit in that respect. Hall and Craig also talk about the importance of exercising due diligence on the founding team, not just the product.
