Venture Capital, Meet South Bend w/ Max Brickman
On Season 2 of Pod.SB we interview a diverse group of people who are here living life on purpose.
In this twelfth episode we talk with Max Brickman, the managing director of South Bend-based venture capital firm Heartland Ventures. Max is originally from Wisconsin where he started his first business at the age of 14, eventually landing in South Bend to follow his then-girlfriend as she attended Notre Dame. Our conversation centers around how he decided to stay in South Bend, his venture capital firm’s unique partnerships with Midwest family-owned businesses, and how this path has shifted the way he values community.
