BRAND NEW: WealthChannel Academy
Jimmy Atkinson is a two-decade serial entrepreneur who helps High Net Worth Investors (HNWIs) protect and grow their wealth with alternative investments.
After founding, scaling, and selling four different seven- and eight-figure businesses (including ETFdb, now part of VettaFi) to private equity buyers, he realized that there was more potential profit to be made on the buying side of private equity. He went on to purchase multiple businesses through private equity partnerships, and now partners with talented entrepreneurs and real estate developers through GP, Co-GP, and LP investments.
In 2018, Jimmy identified the massive potential of the Opportunity Zones (OZ) program and founded OpportunityDb, the world’s #1 authority on private equity investments in the OZ space. He also hosts The Opportunity Zones Podcast, the top-ranked podcast for OZ investors. Building on his leadership in private equity, Jimmy is also co-founder at WealthChannel, the leading community for HNWIs who are placing capital in alternative investments.
Jimmy graduated from the University of Notre Dame, and resides in the great state of Texas with his wife and two children.
