Yuri Fulmer, 41, is chairman of Vancouver-based Fulmer Capital Partners.
Chairman is really just a grand title for "the guy who decides where the money goes." Our office does private equity and venture-capital-style investing in small and mid-cap private companies, and in some early-stage, high-growth companies. We do this on my balance sheet and in conjunction with friends and family – literally, friends and family. That's not a euphemism.
