Entrepreneurs in the Health, Active Lifestyle and Outdoor ("HALO") sector sharing their stories


Robert Fioretti, Managing Director, Palladin Consumer Retail Partners

"We're going into these deals with the intent of partnering with Founders, that they're going to continue to be involved, and the last thing we want or need is for them to be surprised or disappointed with something along the way," states Rob Fioretti, Managing Director of Palladin Consumer Retail Partners.

Rob has been in the private equity space for more than 25 years and in this chat with Pete, he provides extremely valuable information on what Palladin looks for in companies as well as the benefits of partnering with institutional partners versus using personal capital. He and Pete shed important light on the "business" of raising capital, why a firm may say no, some "behind the scenes" thoughts on valuations, what questions to ask before deciding to partner with a venture capital or private equity firm, the return of the studio model, and more!
