Tyler Tysdal is a lifelong entrepreneur helping fellow entrepreneurs sell their business for maximum value as Managing Director of Freedom Factory, the World’s Best Business Broker. Freedom Factory helps entrepreneurs with the biggest deal of their lives.
Prior to founding Freedom Factory, Tyler Tysdal managed a growth equity fund in association with several celebrities in sports and entertainment. Portfolio company Leesa.com grew quickly to over $100 million in revenues and has a visionary social mission to “end bedlessness” by donating one mattress for every ten sold, with over 35,000 donations now made. Some other portfolio companies were in the industries of wine importing, specialty lending and software-as-services digital signage. In parallel to managing assets for businesses, Ty was managing private equity in real estate. He has had a number of successful private equity investments and several exits in student housing, multi-unit housing, and hotels in Manhattan and Seattle.
Tyler Tysdal Management Experience
In 15 years of managing assets and backing several entrepreneurs, Tyler Tysdal’s companies managed or co-managed, non-discretionary, approximately $1.7 billion in assets for ultra-wealthy families in industries such as healthcare, oil and gas, real estate, sports and entertainment, specialty lending, spirits, technology, consumer goods, water, and services companies. His team recommended clients to invest in nearly 100 entrepreneurial companies, funds, private lending deals, and real estate. Ty’s track record with the private equity capital he deployed under the first billionaire client was over 100% annual returns. And that was during the Great Recession of 2008-2010. He has created hundreds of millions in wealth for clients. However, given his lessons from working with a handful of the accredited, highly sophisticated people who could not seem to be pleased on the upside or understand the potential downside of a deal, he is back to work solely with entrepreneurs to help them sell their companies.
Prior to a career in asset management, Tyler built and exited a number of entrepreneurial ventures as Managing Partner of TIVIS Capital, an incubator for entrepreneurial ventures. TIVIS Capital built companies in healthcare, sports and entertainment, and real estate.
Tyler Tysdal graduated from Georgetown University with a B.S.B.A. in Finance and earned his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. Tyler was the Chairman of a YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization) Chapter, a member of EO (Entrepreneurs’ Organization) and named 40 Under 40 in the Denver Business Journal.
Given the ups and downs of hindsight in the world of deal makers, Tyler Tysdal is back in full to entrepreneurship. He has been an owner and Managing Partner of private equity and venture capital firms, been an entrepreneur raising capital several times for his own companies and he started in investment banking working on Initial Public Offerings and Mergers and Acquisitions. He has been on the buy-side, sell-side and an agent in deals for businesses $100,000 to over $1 billion. But it all comes back to one thing – entrepreneurship. That is the single largest generator of economic success in the U.S. and global markets. Entrepreneurs create jobs. Create wealth. All Ty Tysdal does now helps entrepreneurs sell their businesses through Freedom Factory.
