Business Development


Duro was founded by Chadd Knights and Teji Gobran who met working at a family office private equity firm that was led by a hands-on entrepreneur.

Chadd has previously worked in funds management focusing on the small cap space. After a few years, he chose to move into private equity, where operators are notoriously known for delving deep into business fundamentals.

From a young age, Chadd had his heart set on becoming an investor, and this was the path he designed and executed for himself.

On the other hand, Teji had founded and ran his own construction and property business which he eventually scaled to an 8-figure revenue business. He entered the private equity space where he crossed paths with Chadd.

After managing our own portfolio for some time, we decided to establish the firm and extend the invitation to like-minded investors to join us on this journey.
