In the venture capital world, sometimes you find the investment, and sometimes the investment finds you.
That’s what happened to Ryan Waddington, BS ’93/MBA ’99, on his continuing hunt for early-stage companies as co-founder and managing partner of Huron River Ventures. The firm invests in clean technology companies that focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and advanced transportation.
Huron River’s latest investment is Shepherd Intelligent Systems, led by Adrian Fortino, BS ’00/MBA ’10. Fortino was an engineering classmate of Waddington’s partner at Huron River, Tim Streit, BS ’00.
