Lunch & Learn: Wall Street Meets Silicon Valley: A Tale Of Two Mindsets

April 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Lunch will be provided as part of the program.

Please join Justin Stevens, Founder & CEO of Overlap Holdings for “Wall Street Meets Silicon Valley: A Tale of Two Mindsets,” hosted by the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship.

This unique event will bring together institutional investors and students for a disciplined yet opportunistic look at investing across the full company life cycle.

How does early-stage venture capital differ from “traditional,” later-stage investing? Simply put, it’s a matter of perspective.

Wall Street and Silicon Valley each tend to act as their own echo chambers, in which disparate behaviors are valued and different activities are prioritized—leading to efficiencies and pain points that are specific to each ecosystem.

Justin Stevens, a former Senior Partner at Apollo Management–turned–frontier tech VC, describes his journey from the world of later-stage private equity to the amplified risk-return environment of early-stage venture, explaining the contrasts between those markets, and offering insights on how investors can take the best of both worlds to achieve outsized returns.
