In Episode 159, I converse with Evan Katz, Founder of Crawford Ventures. He is an award-winning hedge fund and private equity executive and fundraiser. He has a BS in Finance and Economics from Wharton and a JD from Harvard Law School. Outside of the hedge fund space, he is a chess player and big supporter of the game.
We speak about his computer chess column in chess life, his love and support for some great charities, hedge fund fundraising with chess techniques (relating to the ideas of Marty Katz and his company Connectors 360) , the Fischer-Spassky, Searching for Bobby Fischer and Queen's Gambit booms, common hedge fund mistakes and more.
