▶Archegos Capital Management
- From the get-go, Archegos Capital Management went “all in” with its involvement with Defy. Members of Archegos’ senior leadership team serve as mentors and volunteers, and it has introduced Defy to dozens of contacts who have gotten involved, too. Archegos sponsored a class dinner, thought-provoking movies nights, and even a crab-boil at one volunteer’s home. Believing in our entrepreneurs from the start, it hired those with catering businesses for corporate dinners; members of its networks have hired Defy home contractors for personal home repairs. Defy is deeply indebted to the team at Achegos for its partnership and for the awesome friendship it has extended to our students.
