About Matthew Roszak
I’m Matt Roszak. Welcome to my blog. If you didn’t link here from a related website, you probably don’t know who I am, so let me start with a short introduction.
I’m a venture capitalist. My interest in finance started when I earned a B.A. in economics from Lake Forest College (www.lfc.edu) in Illinois. After that, I worked in the IT/software industry for 10 years, and I’ve been involved with my real love, private equity and venture capital, for the last 15 years. My interests include (obviously) investing, hedge funds, real estate development, buyout, entrepreneurship – if it involves moving and making money, I’m there.
I’m currently the co-founder and managing partner of SilkRoad Equity LLC (www.silkroadequity.com), a private investment firm interested in a wide range of industries. We’re primarily investing in technology, life sciences, media and entertainment, and real estate.
If you can’t find me in the office, I’m probably playing golf or tennis. I also collect sports memorabilia; I’m a huge fan. In fact, I think I hear a basketball game calling my name right now.
Thanks for checking in; visit again soon.
