Welcome back to the Main Thing Podcast! I’m your host Skip Lineberg. My special guest today is unique in several ways. At age 31, he’s the youngest guest so far on The Main Thing. He’s also the first guest who is a French ex-patriate. If that weren’t enough, he is the first “Forbes 30 Under 30” honoree to appear on this show.

Cyril Berdugo is Co-Founder of Landis, a company that helps American renters transition to home ownership. He is also an investor in early-stage companies. Prior to building Landis, Cyril was a venture capitalist at Fifth Wall Ventures and a director at Crown Acquisitions, a New York real estate investment firm. Before joining Crown, he worked at Citigroup and at Houlihan Lokey, where he advised companies on mergers and acquisitions. Throughout his career, he has completed over $10B in transactions.

Cyril holds an undergraduate degree from Emory University and an MBA from Stanford University. Over the next 9 minutes, you will discover why Cyril Berdugo is unquestionably one of the wisest people I know.
