Read this article last week and was impressed by this guy's story.
Something that struck me: I just read through the thread about how tough it is to get funding no matter who you are and how much experience you have-- so it's crazy to think that Paul, a 22-year-old college dropout, convinced the Austin Police Retirement System to invest 25 million in '09. Even before then, to convince people to put money into deals with him when he had just dropped out as a 19/20-year-old kid is pretty wild to me. I guess this dude must be one hell of a salesman, on top of being a good investor.
Just wanted to share this, and see what you guys think. Especially about how this guy got started.
