Biography

David Drake is the founder and chairman of LDJ Capital in New York City, and has been involved in technology, media, and telecom (TMT), realty, energy, clean tech and impact investments for over 20 years. Mr. Drake is also the founder of The Soho Loft Capital Creation Series, covering the private company marketplace, and the co-founder of Crowd Funding Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA).

Mr. Drake’s proclivity toward energy, efficiency and impact investments interweaves directly with the TMT investment strategies, the family office clients of LDJ Capital, and the private company marketplace. His network extends across all continents and allows access to financing in the private company marketplace from hedge funds, high net-worth investors, sovereign wealth funds, private equity firms, family offices, and institutional pension funds. This geographical capital market access includes, but is not limited to, US markets and London, along with exceptional relationships and focus on regular road-shows to Amsterdam, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain, Zurich, Geneva, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Hong Kong. LDJ Capital is headquartered in New York, with partner offices in Zurich, Stockholm, London, Abu Dhabi and Singapore.

He is also a founding board member of the CFIRA, the leadership group directing US crowd funding for equity developments. The emerging crowd funding phenomenon is the largest new financial instrument SMEs and start ups have ever seen.

David Drake was involved lobbying Senators and Congressmen for The JOBS Act, which President Obama signed into law on April 5, 2012. The Securities and Exchange Commission is now working with CFIRA.org to identify best practices in the crowd funding industry.

Mr. Drake’s charitable and educational pursuits involve hosting the Harvard Club and Boston Symphony performances at his home, and membership in the advisory board of Best Buddies Charity for autistic children. Mr. Drake also participates in raising money for charities through a Carnegie Hall concert series.
