Phil Dur
Co-Founder & Managing Partner

It’s a privilege to work with entrepreneurs pursuing a high quality opportunity with energy and conviction. We’re energized by the opportunity to be part of our entrepreneur’s journey.

Favorite Quote: There’s a quote from Virgil that hangs on my wall that I look at every day – “they can because they think they can.”  In my 25-year career, I’ve been consistently gobsmacked by the outcomes one can achieve through the powerful combination of persistence and conviction.
