Who are you?
My name is Ladislas Mysyrowicz, but everyone calls me Lance.
What do you do?
I look for great companies to lend to, lead them through our investment process and track them once we have made the investment. I also fundraise for BOOST.
Where can we find you?
The best way to connect with me, is Linkedin or by email.
What is a typical day in the office?
When I am in the office I am at my desk at 7:15, but I only spend half of my time in the office. The rest of the time I visit companies to understand what they do in detail and meet the people who run them. I also visit the shareholders of our funds to update them on our fund performance.
What do you love most about your job and why?
I love the stimulation I get from learning new things in my job. I do this by getting to know companies, each completely different and interesting. I also learn a lot from the entrepreneurs I meet – they all have unique and fun personalities and I am inspired by their past achievements.
How would you describe your personal style?
Seasonal, simple and social.
Why is candy one of your hobbies?
I love candy and I buy a lot of it, especially when I need to focus for a long time in the office. It also makes me hyperactive so everyone else hates it.
How often do you go to get your hair cut?
On average once every three weeks. The only good thing is that it’s quick.
How would you describe your home decor?
Mix of contemporary and old-skool furniture – curtains from Glasgow, tables from Paris, sofas from Milan, and beds from IKEA. I also collect aviation books and random paintings. I have lots of not very good ones on the walls so the overall effect is crowded.
What was your most memorable holiday, why?
I travelled for a year on $20 a day through Central and South America after university. It was a glorious journey of self-discovery. I met a large part of my family I did not know, and created friendships which last to this day. It’s also how I eventually met my wife, so overall a great result.
Where will you be travelling next?
I would like to cross Australia in a small plane with my family. It’s a long trip and I have to start somewhere, so I’m starting a family.
What is your moto?
Aime craint hait.
