In this episode, I had the honor of talking to Jeff Williams, SVP, Industry Solutions & Strategy at Altvia. You can listen to it on Spotify, and other podcast apps.

Altvia is the leading provider of CRM and investor & deal management systems for Private Capital Market firms. It was founded in 2006 and supports over 40,000 LP investors.

In this episode, we talk about Jeff's upbringing in Colorado, the beginning of his career working as an analyst and an associate sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities, and his last years helping to build Altvia. Also, we deep dive into how the GP-LP relationship is evolving to a new level with changing market dynamics and higher performance expectations.

In the episode, I asked him questions such as:

  • After graduating, you spent nearly 4 years as an Analyst and Associate sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities in venture capital funds and late-stage venture financings in private companies. How was that early experience like?
  • After being at VC firms, you understood how technology could make or break them. How was it to join Altvia and start to provide technology and services to the same companies you spent years of your life working on?
  • 2 years ago, we were in a situation where there weren't many VC-backed IPOs. Since COVID-19, due to the rise of SPACs and a bunch of factors, we're seeing not only more but also bigger IPOs. How has it been for you to watch all these unpredictable market outcomes unfold?

I hope you enjoy the episode as well.
