Prior to co-founding Ganesh Capital, Marc Nemer was the CEO of a New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) company, which he took public in 2013 and then subsequently merged in 2014, creating the largest company of its kind in the United States at approximately $22 billion in assets. Marc understands what it takes to successfully scale and grow a business, having played a leading role in building this company over an eight year period from a small, privately held business with under a billion dollars in assets and 60 employees into a leading national, NYSE public company with over $15 billion in assets across 50 states, a $7 billion market capitalization, and over 400 employees. Marc began his career as a business attorney specializing in mergers and acquisitions and securities offerings, including IPOs. He has a JD from Harvard Law School and a BA from the University of Michigan.
Prior to co-founding Ganesh Capital, Emily Nemer held various finance and wealth management positions with a Fortune-200 company. In addition to her big-company experience, Emily has first-hand experience with start-ups, having worked for a start-up business specializing in digital marketing, social media and search engine optimization (SEO), and also launching a start-up business of her own. Emily is a trained yoga instructor, and believes in bringing many of those principles and values into business. She has an MBA in General Management and MA in Accounting and Financial Management from Keller Graduate School of Management and BS in Business Administration from Northwestern College.
Marc and Emily are passionate entrepreneurs, who enjoy dreaming and strategizing together about life and business. They enjoy brainstorming new business ideas and concepts, and thinking of creative ways to launch, grow and execute business solutions to bring them to fruition. They founded Ganesh Capital to be able to share their passion and vision for business with other like-minded entrepreneurs and help future business leaders get their ideas off the ground and flourish. Like the ancient figure Ganesh symbolizes, Marc and Emily believe in the power of thinking big, of bringing a positive attitude and social consciousness into business, and of working hard and smart to overcome obstacles; and also for reaping the abundance of rewards that should flow from such sacrifices.
