EA Breakfast – Jeff Kadlic, Evolution Capital Partners

Jeffrey Kadlic spent the first 10 years of his career making private investments in an institutional setting.  Early success was achieved in large part to an entrepreneurial mindset within a corporate culture.  While practicing as an institutional investor, working in and around dynamic small businesses, he recognized that growing small businesses needed more than just an influx of cash to scale operations.  Leveraging corporate practices within an entrepreneurial setting, in addition to the capital, was the best way to achieve great performance.

Connected by their passion for growing small companies, in 2005, he and partner, Brendan Anderson, co-founded Evolution Capital Partners, focused exclusively on advising and investing growth capital in Second Stage Companies.

Jeffrey also co-hosts The Second Stage, a weekly online radio program serving the entrepreneurial community as a forum to exchange ideas and best practices, with his partner Brendan Anderson.

Jeff enjoys being spending time with his family, being physically active, playing golf and reading a good book.  Jeff is also very active with the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes, a non-profit that conserves a natural area, connects people with nature and inspires environmental stewardship.  He lives in Shaker Heights, Ohio with his entrepreneurial wife, three sons, one daughter, and a vicious Maltese named Peanut.
