In this episode, Hall welcomes Gabriel Jarrosson, founder of Leonis Investment. Gabriel was an entrepreneur at an early age, creating his first company while in engineering school. He then created his second company, Le Vin de France, a community marketplace for French winemakers, after leaving school. When he began investing, Gabriel quickly realized the benefits of working with syndicates and started one of the first in France.
Gabriel talks about some of the advantages of joining syndicates, such as deal flow and the ability to make smaller investments. He explains how syndicates work, some of the challenges they present, as well as some of the pitfalls of over-diversification. Gabriel invests exclusively in software, so you’ll also hear about some of the software sectors he feels are the most promising.
