Ron Biscardi has spent the better part of his career in finance focusing on connecting investors and managers. Along the way, he built the world’s largest capital introduction conference.
In 2020, Ron saw the impact of the global pandemic and the resulting food insecurities that impacted so many. He decided to combine his ability to connect people with charitable efforts to address hunger issues. The result was iConnections, a software platform that serves the alternative investment world bringing together allocators and managers.
In this episode, Ron tells his story – how he got started in the alternatives industry, the challenges of building a business and the circumstances that led to the creation of iConnections. He also offers up a few insights along the way for start-up managers looking to raise capital.
To learn more about iConnections and the firm’s upcoming charity event in May, titled Funds4Minds, please visit the iConnections website.
