Braewick is a fund managed by Max Olson that invests in public companies and early-stage startups.

We look for businesses that are misunderstood or where we have an identifiable edge over other investors. Braewick invests small checks into early-stage startups that we believe can create a huge amount of value for the world and shareholders; particularly in areas that have a lot of leverage or are overlooked by others.

Braewick's primary goal is to grow our capital at high risk-adjusted rates. (With risk defined as the chance of permanent portfolio-wide loss.) Capital is allocated in a barbell-esque fashion: long-term public holdings, short-term bonds and special situations, and early-stage startups.
