John Graham (USMA ’87) is the CEO at Campfire Capital, an investment banking team that has nearly a century of collective strategic advisory and financial services experience. In today’s episode, we discuss their efforts to build out ThayerGate.Ai, a Business Accelerator program located outside the gates of West Point.
