Timothy Friedman
Timothy Friedman is the founder of private equity data provider PE Stack.

Across the private equity landscape, the events of the past year accelerated the digitization of an industry that has been traditionally, in some cases notoriously, slow to embrace technology. Among many other things, the global pandemic spurred a fundamental shift in attitudes among PE sponsors toward data and software across all operational aspects, from due diligence to portfolio management to value creation tracking to day-to-day collaboration, information sharing, and communications.
