In this episode, Todd talks with Victor Menasce about how he got into real estate development from scratch, and his principles of raising capital.

Victor began investing in real estate during the recession. This started locally in Canada, and moved quickly into the US markets as the opportunities for great investments presented themselves. This was a right-hand turn in his career after spending 25 years in the high-tech industry. His past roles include, Vice President of Engineering at Wavesat, a developer of chips for wireless networks, and Chief Technical Officer at Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, a Silicon Valley based public company that develops processors for use in numerous consumer products including televisions and gaming. He was founder and Chief Operating Officer at Somerset Technologies. He also held several senior roles in marketing and engineering with Tundra Semiconductor. He is the author of the new book “Magnetic Capital: How to raise all the money for ANY worthy venture.” He is an active real estate developer and he helps select clients scale their real estate investment businesses.
