This week, the GGB Podcast features a discussion with Matt Sodl, the founding partner, president and managing director of Innovation Capital, on the investment firms latest successes and how the current investment climate isn’t as bad as some might believe.

Matt Sodl

When Matt Sodl formed Innovation Capital, LLC with principals of The Innovation Group, a boutique investment bank focused on gaming was something new.  Now, nearly 20 years later, Innovation Capital has advised on over $11 billion in transaction volume within the gaming, leisure, restaurant and retail industries.  Most recently, the company acted as financial advisor to Bally’s in its successful bid for the Chicago casino project.  Sodl talks about the current economic climate and why it continues to foster opportunities for tribes and corporations alike.  He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his offices in Boca Raton in February.
