Managing Partner at Castle Peak Partners, GP Tandem VC

David Wagonfeld - I began my career as a partner and portfolio manager at Standard Pacific Capital - then a $4B global long/short value-oriented hedge fund. I managed the technology investments in the portfolio and later served as President. After leaving I built out a restaurant partnership that owns dozens of QSRs, and am currently starting a new concept, JayBird�s Chicken, which we will grow to 9 stores by end of 2021. I am also a partner at Tandem Capital, a $100m seed fund and focus primarily on consumer and software internet companies, leading our investments in companies such as Nom Nom Now and 7Shifts. I recently started a small investment fund, Castle Peak Partners, focusing on technology, health care and restaurants.
