Arthur Becker is the CEO of Zinio, a tech company that is focused on developing and investing in new technology. Becker is also the Managing Partner at Madison Partners, LLC — a real estate and bio tech investment firm in the city of New York. In a report by NY Daily News, Becker’s career as an entrepreneur has been quite the thing to watch over the years as it always seems like he is on the verge of another big breakthrough. Becker’s been kind enough throughout his career to share his process and what makes him tick so that’s what we’ll be diving into today.
To start with, Arthur Becker lends credence to the business of his ex-wife, fashion designer Vera Wang, as the inspiration that led him to real estate. Becker credits Vera Wang Fashion as the driving force behind his desire to purchase ‘unique properties’ and completely renovate them with the goal of reselling at a profit. Becker says that he typically will “make back my investment plus some.” Becker goes on to say that he got his start in business, in general, by investing into technology companies. Becker’s work with tech gave him the freedom financially to pursue this more passionate project.
You can’t really make it as an entrepreneur without knowing what you are doing, and that is a big aspect of why Becker’s been so successful. As an investor and a developer, Becker has long been focused on constantly preparing. Becker says, “It’s easy to doubt yourself if you don’t know what you are doing.” This aspect of his life has always been present and it’s a big reason as to why Becker has elevated his production year in and year out as a successful entrepreneur. Becker admits, and we believe him, “I don’t think there was really any time that I necessarily doubted myself as a businessman.”
According to The Real Deal, Arthur Becker got his first fortune after working as a stockbroker. That first fortune was parlayed into varying degrees of success as an investor. Becker’s now focused on his work with Zinio as well as Madison Partners, LLC where he seeks to expand his portfolio even further.
