Raising Money to Reach New Career Heights


Victor Menasce (pronounced Menash) is a serial entrepreneur and author of two books on investing. His most recent book is Magnetic Capital: How to Raise All the Funds for ANY Worthy Venture. He started his career as an engineer designing microprocessors. Victor has held senior roles in technology companies, and now is developing real estate in multiple markets.



Victor is an expert at raising capital. He's raised over $300 million in his career so far and had raised a lot of money but never really considered that to be a super-power. One day, a securities attorney was listening to his presentation in a mastermind in San Diego. They observed that Victor's unique expertise was raising funds. Everything else should be delegated. Along the way, Victor realized that raising money was easy at times and very difficult at other times. He eventually figured out the formula, and that became the genesis of Magnetic Capital.
