The Intersection of Finance, Tech, and the Midwest
Among Other Things
Thanks for checking out my newsletter. If you are interested in the intersection of tech, finance, and the Midwest, this is the place for you.
This is a spinoff effort of my blog - 17000Credits.
The name 17,000 credits was taken from the scene above, where Obi-Wan Kenobi negotiates a ride to Alderaan (RIP) on the famed Millenium Falcon. This negotiation is a great case-study for how risk assessment can be critical when trying to make a decision. I also just think Han Solo is really cool.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: PETER G. SCHMIDT
I am a born-and-raised Ohioan with a love for everything finance and entrepreneurship. I grew up watching my mother start her own business and hearing stories about how my grandfather started his own company. I have always enjoyed hearing about the struggles and triumphs of entrepreneurs starting their own businesses. I currently work on the investments team with Rev1 Ventures and I love my job. I thoroughly enjoy the investment process and I am always on the lookout for the next great investment idea. Reach out to me on the connect page if you are in the Midwest and want to talk about startups, venture capital, or any of my posts.
