Peak 15 Capital started perhaps 20 years before it was founded. The Founder, John Azar, recognized a disconnect in the capital markets space when he was involved in a previous venture called Boston Venture Partners. The alignment between capital and commercial real estate projects has been fraught with unaligned interests and understanding of the business and acquisition cycle.
John created Peak 15Capital to address these alignment issues and have a capital advisory platform that is accessible, aligned with sponsors/operators, creative with capital solutions, responsive without the pressure and delivers on projects with success.
The name Peak 15 is the topographical numeric name of Mount Everest. It is what early surveyors and mountaineer enthusiasts called Mount Everest prior to its current name in 1852. The mountain changed name to Everest in 1865 after Sir George Everest, a British surveyor General of India.
