The Capital Team

The Founders of Midas Capital are a team of nonconformists with disruptive ideas about how to make investment decisions.

We started as an investment club in 2013. Now we’re incorporated.

The old VC model is broken- we believe that the real heroes are not the investors but the entrepreneur. Having started and run businesses ourselves, we understand the challenges of doing business and know where and put support where it is needed the most.
