My guest on this episode is Tim Ludwig, managing partner of Ohana Capital in San Diego. Tim is a search fund investor through Ohana and has extensive experience, having invested in 75 deals over his career. More recently, Tim has been investing in companies directly rather than investing in searchers through a fund.
During our conversation, we cover topics like being a search fund investor vs investing directly, the history of search funds and investing in them, the search fund climate today, and Tim’s exciting and sometimes dangerous study abroad experiences in Columbia and Spain. Tim was in Portland on business and was kind enough to share part of his morning with me for this podcast.
