About the episode:
Greg Thain is an entrepreneur and investor. A long career in the business, he has created, launched & aided many successful companies over the years, with current projects including the 1297 Property fund, 85 Degrees Renewable plc and Hermione Fund. In his corporate finance role, he helped raise more than $2.5 billion in capital over the past two decades. In this in-depth conversation, Greg reflects on his journey so far and how he got there – from starting out producing a music magazine, to ending up in the finance sector; shares stories of his “dynamic” experience working on his Russian market research company, the lessons learned there and how he built a profitable business; and describes his current venture into sustainability in Holland – how he’s using “neglected” geothermal energy to power greenhouses, helping the country reduce their carbon emissions and hoping to lead the way for others to follow.
