Our Leadership Team




Adam Oliveri, Founder & CEO

Adam Oliveri discovered the joy of craft beer in college when he picked up a bottle of Raison D’Etre.  Now, more than a decade later, he has founded Craft Collective to transform the way breweries get their start.

Previously, Adam started the Private Company Market at SecondMarket, which helped fund and develop startups by connecting them to investors through an online platform.  The creation of this product is the subject of a Harvard Business School case study, used each year to teach students about disruptive innovation in entrepreneurial finance.
