How Ideas for Madison Partners, LLC came about

Arthur traces back the idea for Madison from his tenure at Zinio and NaviSite, where he became deeply engaged in both real estate and technology. After selling NaviSite in 2011, he chose to expand his real estate interests by venturing in condo development in Miami, FL and NYC. Becker claims that he had also been exposed to various early stage biotech firms, and he got fascinated by the changing paradigms.

Arthur Becker claims that balancing critical thinking with passion and drive is the biggest challenge he faces. He says that over the years, he has tried different investments, failed severally, and hopefully he has learned from his failures on how to avoid related failures.
