According to The Real Deal, his affiliation with the two companies helped him to gain extensive knowledge in technology and real estate. He was also able to develop interests in both fields. When he sold NaviSite in 2011, the shrewd entrepreneur decided to explore the real estate industry by investing in condominium units in New York and Miami. At the same time, he started researching more about biotech firms. By virtue of being a managing partner at Madison, he invests in both real estate and early stage biotech companies.
