Bryan Stolle

Managing Director
Wildcat Venture Partners

Bryan has spent much of his career as an entrepreneur and then angel and institutional investor, building or mentoring businesses that provide solutions to address the needs of corporations and consumers. Growing up under two generations of self-made businessmen, Bryan’s work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit is deeply rooted in his youth. As a teen, he competitively raced motocross, taking on jobs delivering newspapers, making pizzas and stocking groceries to support his racing passion. This entrepreneurial zeal led Bryan to create more than $1 billion in realized liquidity for his investors as a founder; overseeing the ideation, development, go-to-market and market growth of product and service offerings that have achieved well over $5 billion in revenues; and raising more than $1 billion in venture, public market and investment management capital. He has invested in and supported the growth of nine IPOs or major M&A transactions and five Unicorns and counting.
An alumnus of the McCombs School of Business and an avid Longhorns fan, his early love of athletics has led him to view his role in venture capital as more of a coach or mentor to entrepreneurs who are embarking on the journey he’s also taken.
As an investor, Bryan’s areas of interest include Software as a Service (SaaS), FinTech (alternative credit, payments, insurance and proptech), and the Future of Work, as well as the growing elder care market.
