Michael Sidgmore is a co-founder and partner at Broadhaven Ventures, which is part of Broadhaven Capital Partners. Michael is a leading expert in the alternatives going mainstream movement in fintech and was an early employee at iCapital. He was an early investor in Carta, MoneyLion, Republic, Nowports, Pipe, and Allocate, among many others. He was educated at Middlebury and the London School of Economics and started his career working on the Goldman Sachs Principal Strategic Investments team. I was looking forward to talking to Michael about the great interest in fintech platforms providing more access to alternative investments to RIAs, family offices, and accredited and qualified purchasers, which looks to become a multi-billion if not trillion-dollar marketplace.
