Fortress Investment group’s principal and co-chairman, Peter Briger is a man known for his compelling career. Aside from Briger’s professional life, he is also famed for supporting causes that help improve the lives of those who hail from disadvantaged backgrounds. For instance, he is heavily involved in the charity activities of Silicon Valley council, a non-profit group that spearheads the alleviation of poverty across the world by supporting children who come from poor backgrounds.
Helping entrepreneurs the Princeton way
This is not the only charity organization that Peter has a hand in, as there are many others. These include his former academic institution, Princeton, where he helped co-found the alumni entrepreneurship fund two decades ago. This fund has helped facilitate the dreams of many upcoming entrepreneurs by supporting them financially so they can set up their businesses. Through its six-member panel which Briger is also part of, the fund also goes the extra mile in ensuring that the young entrepreneurs have what it takes to run a business by initiating mentorship and training programs.
