Who we are

 

Mike De Paola was born in Brooklyn and raised in NYC.  He began his career at Salomon Brothers in 1986 and later earned his MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA.  After a considerable tenure selling, trading and teaching equity derivatives on Wall Street, he decided to leave JP Morgan in 2001 to pursue the life of a serial entrepreneur.  His love for the arts, real estate, and product development led to the creation of MikeDP Ventures and its 10+ subsidiaries.
