Jeff Brown

Jeff Brown

Editor, Exponential Tech Investor

Jeff Brown is a high-technology executive with 25 years of experience. And that’s helped make him a successful at identifying tech companies that are well positioned for exponential growth.
As an active angel investor in early-stage technology companies, he has access to information the public never sees. And several of the private companies in which he invested have already more than doubled in value.

Jeff has a wide range of technology industry experience. From semiconductors to mobility, to broadcasting and video technology, to technology infrastructure, to IT networking, to IT security, to automotive and even consumer electronics… He’s done it all.

He built early-stage start-ups and ran organizations generating hundreds of millions of dollars in annual revenues. And now he shares that knowledge and experience with readers of his Exponential Tech Investor investment advisory.

Though he was born, educated, and started his career in America, he spent the last two decades living and working in international markets. That gives him a unique global perspective on business and investing and in analysis.

Jeff earned his BS in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University – one of the top schools in its field. He also earned his MS in Management at the London Business School.

Chris Mayer

Chief Investment Strategist, Bonner Private Portfolio and Chris Mayer’s Focus

Chris learned the art of valuing companies the hard way – clocking a decade as a corporate banker while also earning his MBA.

After 11 years with Agora Financial – during which he wrote two very successful research letters – Chris joined Bonner & Partners to develop a first-of-its-kind investment advisory. Launched in April 2016, Bonner Private Portfolio is the only trading service ever to be actively followed by Bill Bonner. In fact, Bill’s family trust has committed to invest $5 million in Chris’s model portfolio.

Chris’s latest project, Chris Mayer’s Focus, provides in-depth, hedge-fund quality analysis on small-cap stocks with the potential to become huge stock-market winners. We’re talking about the next Starbucks, Apple, or Berkshire Hathaway. Focus closely follows the strategy Chris uses to invest his own money.

Chris has been quoted many times by MarketWatch and has been a guest on Forbes on Fox, Fox Business, CNN Radio and Russia Today TV, and has made multiple CNBC and radio appearances. He’s also contributed to The Washington Post. Chris travels the world looking for great ideas and insights for his readers.

Chris also shares his investing wisdom through books. His first, Invest Like a Dealmaker: Secrets From a Former Banking Insider, covers time-tested, essential principles of investing. World Right Side Up: Investing Across Six Continents takes you on a round-the-world journey from Brazilian farmlands to Dubai’s gold souks, from Chinese shopping malls to South African markets. His newest book, 100 Baggers: Stocks That Return 100-to-1 and How to Find Them, teaches readers all the key characteristics of companies that return $100 for every $1 invested.

After two decades of investing, Chris developed a proprietary CODE system – an investment strategy he used to outperform not only the S&P 500, but also legendary investors like Warren Buffett, Carl Ichan, John Paulson, and David Einhorn for 10 years straight.
