VC firms are known for catapulting some of the most iconic tech companies into unicorn status and their founders into stardom. They're not known for looking at founders outside the tech bubbles, much less founders that don't come from money. That's where Mac Conwell wanted to step in. A founder in his own right (one success, one flop) Mac has seen the how hard it is to start a business and get the proper support to make it run the way it should. His firm, RareBreed Ventures, works as a pre-seed fund for founders solving unique problems in across all industries from overlooked areas of the country. Mac joins the show to talk with Scott about his entrepreneurial journey, a healthy look at the founder-VC relationship and how he wants to help people with their ideas through investment.
