Eggs 202: Building a business and staying competitive during a pandemic with Paul Hickey

Welcome back to Eggs! This week we have serial entrepreneur, angel investor, and investment banker, Paul Hickey. Paul has raised more than 22 rounds of funding for his own startups, had several exits, and taken one all the way through IPO. He has also co-founded a boutique investment bank where he’s spent a decade raising capital for fast-growth companies.

Most recently, however, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, he launched the Utah-based Pura Vita Medical to manufacture medical grade face masks for the general public and healthcare industry, including N95 and KN95 masks.

Joining us today to talk about raising money the right way, setting yourself up for a fruitful exit, building a business during a pandemic, and the struggles of competing with China, and your own government are actively working against you, please join us in welcoming to the show, Paul Hickey.
