In this episode, Hall welcomes John McEvoy, Managing Partner at Tribeca Early Stage Partners (ESP).
Headquartered in New York, New York, and founded in 2014, Tribeca ESP is an early-stage venture group primarily focused on pre-A and A-stage companies in FinTech. They have brought together a network of entrepreneurs and business leaders with deep domain expertise in institutional finance and technology. With approximately 50 accredited investors, they have the collective experience and perspective that touches virtually every facet of the institutional finance landscape. While they enjoy socializing, they are not a social club. They are here to invest capital and leverage their strong network to assist the companies in which they invest.
John is a passionate, serial entrepreneur who, since 1999, has started three companies focused on using technology to alter the traditional rhythms of the institutional finance space.
His first venture, Creditex – a hybrid electronic and voice brokerage trading platform for the credit derivatives market – was acquired by IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) in 2008 for over $600 M. He was also a founder and operating partner of eBond Advisors, which brought financial technology to the product level of a corporate bond – creating a more liquid financial instrument for investors while lowering financing costs for issuers. Finally, John founded a Bermuda-based reinsurance company backed by Wachovia Corp.
Prior to his entrepreneurial pursuits, John spent 13 years on Wall Street at PaineWebber, Bankers Trust, and Deutsche Bank in derivative structuring and sales. He has been an active angel investor, board member, and advisor to many young companies. He loves the entrepreneurial environment and process and is always willing to lend a hand or give advice when asked.
John advises entrepreneurs and investors in the fintech industry and discusses his investment thesis and some of the startups that fit his thesis.
