Ho-Hum to Hedge FundCO
You're 25, have an Economics B.A. from a ho-hum state school, good math/stats/coding aptitude (but no formal training) and are working in NYC for a prop shop doing accounting and operations. No certifications/exams of any kind passed. You have no seed money right now/minimal connections.
You want to be the major partner in a hedge fund with a strategy of your design with $100 million+ (in today's dollars) AUM by 35. You would also settle for $5-$8 million liquid cash (once again in today's dollars) for yourself by 35 as well.
How do you do it?
If you haven't figured it out by now, "You" = "I".
Do your worst.
