Becoming a Venture Capitalist

Marshall Kuremsky set his sights on becoming a physician specializing in orthopedics early in his childhood. And he took all of the necessary steps to make that happen. But along the way, he became interested in finance and private equity investing. And he applied the same intense study to that discipline as he did to his medical education.

After beginning his practice, Marshall broadened his pursuits to include real estate investing and day trading. He developed a small health care consulting firm, and a multimedia social platform promoting news and information about injuries in baseball.

Those experiences led him to join a venture capital firm called LOUD Capital, as the Head of Physician Relations. He recently became a partner in the firm and continues to balance those activities with his orthopedic practice.

Marshall has crafted a combination of careers that keeps him engaged and fulfilled. He admits that the current season of his life is focused on his careers. And he acknowledges that he will need to dial it back and focus on other aspects in the near future. Right now, however, he is learning everything he can about being a venture capitalist.


This path is uncommon for physicians to follow. However, it's not out of the question. In fact, the private equity firm that Marshall works for was co-founded by a physician, Dr. Navin Goyal.

Valuable Venture Competition

Marshall's firm is partnering with the Chicago Bulls to support a pitch competition for Chicago-based companies and entrepreneurs. If any PNC Podcast listeners are interested, you can get more information from Marshall, using the links below.

The Chicago Bulls were interested in partnering with Loud Capital because it allows the organization to support the community in a way that will encourage entrepreneurs and create jobs. It's a completely open competition. LOUD Capital and the Chicago Bulls will sift through the applicants to idently five finalists. The winner will be announced at a Bulls game in the spring of 2020 at halftime.

It comes with financial and in-kind support worth $50,000, including access to the team at LOUD Capital. It's like being on Shark Tank, where you can make your pitch in public.

Venture capital is a nice blend. It involves raising money, or capital, and then deploying or sharing that capital to companies that you have identified in exchange for some equity, or ownership, in the company.

To participate, you need to be based in Chicago, Illinois. Your business idea can be anything from a tech or healthcare startup, to an agricultural or educational venture. It's really about having an idea and a business plan, and a 60 second video that you submit online.

If you've been working on a business idea and want to pitch it to Loud Capital and the Chicago Bulls, follow the link below. But get going, because this is a time limited opportunity.

Next week I’ll bring you an interview with a podcasting colleague and friend, Dr. Jarret Patton. He is a pediatrician, speaker, book author and physician advocate. Don't miss Episode 118!
