Very knowledgeable & insightful. Helped me gain clarity on fund structure, startup costs & other considerations. Thanks Carl!
Carl knew very well the ins and outs of investing/trading, and also gave me clarity on stuff that only experience can tell, I liked it and probably would consult with him again.
Extremely helpful, definitely gave me clarity on some issues and concerns I was having.
Extremely helpful and showed up with a full desire to help. Most likely will call again :) Thanks Carl!
I had a very nice chat with Carl and he was willing to discuss trading strategies, as well as ways of working as a trader with investment firms that may provide trading capital.
Carl is awesome. I presented my idea and he gave deliberate feedback on my concept and presentation style. I spoke to him about hedge fund strategy, emerging markets and venture capital, and how our technology could play a role in the financial industry space. He really helped me achieve clarity in terms of where my product might be most useful as well as concrete examples of how I should move forward. After our call, he continued to look into my startup and sent me a detailed follow-up message.
