This is the blog of Brett Martin. Expect musings on opportunity, inspiration, entrepreneurship, music, love, life and other things I like. The main purpose of the blog is to organize my thoughts and (hopefully) get feedback from smart people like you.
I spent the past two years on a Fulbright scholarship in Milano, Italia studying entrepreneurial resource allocation in early stage investors. Thanks to my adviser Thanos and to all of the gracious VCs and entrepreneurs that made my study possible.
Prior to the Fulbright, I learned about Internet marketing at an IPTV startup and started an indie rock band in NYC. Thanks to my talented musician friends for letting me play the bass (poorly) with them.
Before the music, I sailed the a 40 year old 30ft Ketch 6,000 miles at 4 knots per hour from Maine to Dominica to Ft. Lauderdale. Thanks to the Seapearl and to my shipmate for keeping us alive.
Before setting sail, I got my first post-college job (Dartmouth), as an equity research associate at Thomas Weisel Partners in NYC. Thanks to Wall St. for providing the seed capital for my adult life.
Thanks to my parents for getting me through first 17 years.
