Gui Costin is the founder of Dakota, a 3rd Party Marketing firm, and Stage Investor Network, a mobile platform for investment manager digital content. In 2006 Gui founded Dakota to provide sales and marketing services to boutique investment firms. Since that time Dakota has grown to 10 people and has raised approximately $20 billion for 15 different investment firms. Gui is proudest of his team, saying, “Without the longstanding, extraordinary people we have at Dakota, we’d be a fraction of our current selves. It’s all about the people you have on your team and how you treat them.” In 2016, the team at Dakota began building a mobile platform for investment management firms to post their digital content for due diligence analysts to consume anytime, anywhere.
