Oliver C. Carmichael, III, Principal Advisor and Vice Chairman

Crom Carmichael is a native of South Bend, Indiana and a 1971 graduate of Vanderbilt University. He now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.

Over the last 18 years, Crom has funded, raised capital for and guided young entrepreneurs of over 40 companies in a variety of industries. Companies supported include staffing, Pre-K education, and a host of technology companies. Five companies have had exits at more than $100M valuation – enterprise value, and one under $20M. A dozen have failed. The remainder are active – some with great promise.

Crom believes that great leadership is more important than a great idea. That is, great management plus an average idea, can have a very positive outcome. Poor management plus a great idea is a failure. Great management plus a great idea is a home run. Scalability and recurring revenue are essential to success.

In addition to his business career, Crom has been an active political commentator in the Nashville media market from time to time since the mid 1980’s. From 1989 to 1996, Crom wrote a bi-monthly column for The Nashville Tennessean, opposing the paper’s editorial positions.
