Jeff Burningham on Corporations

 

 


His VC firm funds start-up businesses with great ideas

For almost two decades now, Jeff Burningham has been on a streak, hitting home runs with whatever endeavor he puts his mind to. He started a successful tech startup while still a BYU undergrad and, at 25, sold it to a NASDAQ-listed company (long before it was cool). He then parlayed his earnings from that deal into real estate when the market was booming in the early oughts.

He was among a very few people who foresaw growth in that market as unsustainable and liquidated his holdings before the bubble burst and the Great Recession began. Then, he recruited partners and rebuilt a real estate portfolio, buying distressed properties as the market bottomed out, leading to his current holdings, now valued at $2 billion.

And when you have $2 billion in assets, you can start doing the things you really enjoy. For Burningham, that was launching a venture capital firm dedicated to finding interesting people with great ideas and helping them get their businesses off the ground.
