“I love competing against old slow incumbents and I always get most nervous when things are going really well, I think that's when you need to be the most vigilant.”
Steve's investing career started when his grandfather taught him how to read stock charts, but officially began at Robertson Stephens, before working his way up through the likes of McKinsey and American Capital.
After finding success in growth and buyout, Steve founded Activant to bridge the gap between venture and traditional growth equity by focusing on high-growth companies with an active operational approach. He has since grown the firm to $1.2bn in AUM and drives Activant's long-term strategy.
