“We are at a moment of time. Humans and machines are coming together in an unprecedented way – I caution those that resist this change.” Sajjad Jaffer, Two Six Capital
Two Six Capital was founded on two simple realizations: the Private Equity industry had predominantly focused on returns by cutting costs and leveraging up assets, and there had been very little attention paid to understanding revenue. Sajjad Jaffer and Ian Picache started Two Six Capital on a mission to transform investing through data science. Two Six, as it’s affectionately known, has worked with over 20 Private Equity firms and pioneered data science for the sector over the past 6 years with a unique cultural combination of Silicon Valley engineering hoodies, seasoned investors and research developed at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
