Today on the show, Thomas and I discuss how a private equity firm can race up the learning curve and develop its area of expertise.

“The first thing is you need to define your posture on the topic,” Thomas says. “Too many times, the posture is … they don’t have a posture, or it’s unclear and you haven’t thought about it.”

We discuss how leading firms are building out dedicated web3 teams and developing a capacity for deal sourcing and diligence. And we explore how private equity firms are using tokenization to reach a whole new class of investors.
