Neumann’s 166 2nd LLC is among a group of investors in talks to take part in a $4 million convertible note, said Ilan Stern, the family office’s Chief Investment Officer. New York-based Peach Street is headed by Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wang.
“Andrew is a friend who worked for me for many years and is a world-class investor, operator and person,” said Stern, who previously worked for Soros Fund Management. “We are looking forward to supporting them as they grow.”
