Bridger Pennington

I have now seen two Instagram sponsored posts from this clown who is "trying to teach you how to start a private equity fund now. Why waste a decade on Wall St?!" He's still in college as far as I can tell, but he claims to have done 150 deals in the past year. #familymoney

What am I missing here? It is clearly a scam, but how does one think they can add value to a real business with zero professional experience? How does anyone raise money with no track record?

Are other people seeing these ads? I was shocked.

I gave a spam email to learn more about it and he talks about how some guy in Texas did it named Nate Paul. If you google Nate Paul, you will see that the FBI raided his place earlier this year.... Scam written all over it.

I had a flair for languages. But I soon discovered that what talks best is dollars, dinars, drachmas, rubles, rupees and pounds fucking sterling.

I don't think this Bridger guy is the real deal. However, people do get into private equity and become successful with no personal experience you just have to leverage other people's track record and experience and give away a lot of equity. A lot of these big shots in PE aren't as smart as you think, they just have big BALLS.

Yeah he comes off as a scam. However, I've actually seen the backend of what he's doing and it seems pretty legit. I joined his course because I was curious about what he was doing (and they had some type of guarantee) and actually pretty helpful for us to scale our real estate operations.

Juicepenn, completely true. 

He definitely doesn't know how pitch and feels like a scam, but the overall product is great. 

He should post all the filings he has with the sec to prove people wrong, but it's shocking to me that these "analyst" can't do any type of due diligence on pitchbook, google, etc

Mr.William.C.Wade, thanks for being a independent thinker. A vase amount of these non-MD material don't understand that you have to go through IB route, wish I could publish more but that would make more competition and fuck that

For those who may think I'm him, I'm not

and excuse my grammar, usually a intern takes care of it for me. If you dealt with C-suite executives, you would know we have shitty grammar
