Michael Warburg is the co-founder and Managing Director of Warbros Venture Partners, a private investment firm focused on expansion stage companies with unique consumer product or business service offerings. Prior to co-founding Warbros, Michael spent the majority of his career in commercial banking. He went through the Commercial Bank Management Training Program at J.P Morgan & Co. in New York and later worked for Fleet Bank in Providence, RI and Fleet/Shawmut in Hartford, CT. The last seven years of this period were spent managing and performing “workouts” involving loan transactions of $1-20 million in a variety of industries. Through this process he became intimately familiar with the many financing options available to companies and the methods they can use to improve performance and attract equity. Following this commercial banking experience he co-founded a financial consulting business that served to raise debt and equity for small to mid-sized companies. Mike received his BS from Brown University and MA in Accounting from the University of Rhode Island.
