The most satisfying aspect of venture investing, according to Brett, is being in a position to help an entrepreneur succeed, whether that means providing operational, financial, or strategic support. Brett grew up in Chicago, but after several family moves acquired a lifelong interest in travel. He currently lives in Boston’s South End with his wife and daughter.
