Specialty or Industry Focus: M&A, Capital Raising, Restructuring for Growth Companies

After over 20 years of investment banking for some of Wall Street’s most prominent firms, John Joliet co-founded LA-based merchant banking firm American Discovery Capital (ADC) in 2016 to provide M&A, capital raising and restructuring advice to leading publicly-traded and privately-held growth companies, Boards of Directors, entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses. As a true merchant bank, ADC also has raised a $60 million private equity fund to invest its own capital to alongside its client’s growth initiatives, or in other promising growth opportunities.
