Latitude Episode 24: Survive The Bubble By Riding The Momentum


What would you do if you lost 80% of your net wealth in the dot com burst? Give up or hunker down and ride the wave?

This week on the Latitude podcast we talk with Softbank Capital managing partner and former 43North Chairman Jordan Levy. Jordy has a long career in venture capital, investing early in brands like eTrade, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and more. Jordy talks about the the wild west of the 1990’s and investing in tech, riding the wave all the way to the dot com crash, riding it out and coming out the other side a smarter investor.

Jordy also talks about how Buffalo can continue to ride the momentum it’s seen in recent years and what more it needs to do in order to be successful with its newfound love with the innovation economy.
