Jan Simon is an investor, banker and scholar who has invested and raised private and public capital across multiple industries in Europe and North America. He is also a Visiting Professor at IESE Business School, and Visiting Scholar at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He was rated by The Economist as one of the Top #20 Business School Professors in the world. He has been a special advisor to Pacific Lake Partners (the largest investor in search funds) and is the managing partner of Vonzeo Capital, a global institutional investor in search funds.
A search fund is an investment vehicle through which investors support an entrepreneur's efforts to locate, acquire, manage and grow a privately held company. In this model, a recent MBA graduate (or two graduates) becomes the CEO of the company and works to build the business over the following 5+ years. The entrepreneurs are compensated with a significant equity stake in the value created during their tenure. This challenge and independence has resulted in the creation of over 250 Search Funds, with the asset class as a whole boasting an aggregate pre-tax internal rate of return of 36.7 percent and 8.4x multiple of investment.
