Brent began his career in 1988 at Bear Stearns as the firm’s youngest hire. He worked in merger arbitrage for six years and participated in some of the most daring and groundbreaking buyouts and hostile takeovers on Wall Street.
In 1997, Brent settled in San Francisco launching a venture fund and strategic advisory to technology companies that were early entrants in the dotcom boom. Funding and advising twenty- seven companies in Silicon Valley, with a focus on e-Commerce, software, and networking equipment, Elev8tion Ventures, ranked number three on Hedgefund.net’s 1999 best performing funds in the ‘Technology Focused’ fund rankings.
In 2003, after the dotcom bubble burst, Brent took the business to Asia, working between China and Hong Kong, advising and investing in emerging technology companies with a specific focus on B2B e-commerce companies. Several of his portfolio companies were early competitors to Alibaba that were acquired by large multinational logistics and sourcing companies.
Desiring a change from finance and technology, in 2010, Brent partnered with a former US Navy SEAL and a UK Special Air Service Regiment (“SAS”) Captain to launch a high-threat security and intelligence provider, Empirica/MASC. Over the course of five years, Empirica/MASC contracted to numerous government intelligence agencies, multinational corporations and NGO’s, providing human intelligence, counter-terrorism and hostile environment risk-mitigation packages.
