Karim Rayani is a deal guy from way back, a non-stop money raiser, deal maker, handshaker and groover/shaker. If you needed a guy to invest in a biotech deal, Karim would go find him. If you needed some dough to kickstart a palladium mine, Karim will have a guy who knows a guy. And if you needed someone to write about your company, he’d be on the phone bothering me several times a day, squeezing me on my rate, selling me a tale that these guys. “My man, these guys, you have to meet them, they have something special. Sometimes it would even be special.
