"Bringing diversity into venture capital investing might mean you got to put it in the contract from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. This week, a group of venture capital firms announced that they're planning to make diversity a core part of their deals with startup founders. The ten firms committed to including new standard language in the contracts called term sheets that they make with startup founders. It's a diversity writer that says that the company and lead investor will make every attempt to include a member of an underrepresented group as a CO investor. It's not. Binding language but the idea is that it will create opportunity for underrepresented investors to participate in deals and also attract founders who prioritize a commitment to equity. The initiative was started by Alejandro Guerrero, a venture capitalist based in Los Angeles with the firm act one ventures I wanted funds to feel because, yes, this is important and everybody out here is talking about it and all the founders are trying to see more. That we're the ones signing up for it. We're actually going to be the ones that have the competitive advantage because founders are looking to work with individuals that are trying to do more. It doesn't have the teeth to see it is enforceable, but that wasn't the point. Right the point here is that all of us know what this is about all of us are making a commitment it's going to it's GonNa. Take some effort it's GonNa. Take a bit word particularly if you know maybe you didn't have the diverse network of potential investors to bring in but now it's reason to do that right it. It's a reason to go out and build more networks meet individuals that you know that you can invite and you'll get to know more, and then hopefully when you build that trust, you'll start seeing incredible new deal flow. I mean I guess I wonder why wouldn't affirm WANNA have diversity rider like this I can't speak to why they wouldn't want to do right. Every fund is different. The way that they're structured their make up their cash, their LP's I don't know. What will success look like I'm hopeful that yeah within. A few years year to that, we see this in the majority of venture funds, and hopefully we'll take it to further and say what you embed this in my term sheet. Yeah. Best case could you see a scenario where as this conversation becomes more prevalent? The push from founders right. The competition could incentivize firms to bring on more underrepresented partners. Yeah. Exactly. That's where I hope this is all GonNa go right like the matter what we do it's not enough right hire more people write more checks do the writer create officer programs, cohorts, all of it like not enough the gap is so wide right diversity is forever, and if we start thinking about it in that regard, then it won't become part of our. Normal behavior when we're out building networks when we're looking for companies when we're out doing deals, how we structure them, you know how advise our our founders to think about building their executive ranks their boards, all of it. Right. We'll give them off to a more equitable than just roll and that's the world that I wanna live in I'm an optimist and I'm hopeful that that's where we're going to see ourselves in and some in the coming years here. Alejandro Guerrero is the principal with the firm act. One ventures. And now for some related links as we mentioned in the interview, there are some notable absences from the diversity writer program big Silicon Valley names like sequoia Andriessen, Horowitz client of Perkins we asked all three if they had plans to join this totally non-binding voluntary inclusion of language and their term sheets with the goal of starting a conversation about diversity at all stages of the investing life cycle. Andriessen Horwitz pointed us to its cultural leadership fund and eighteen million dollars. So Fund made up of one hundred percent black limited partners whose primary investor is also black with one goal being to quote enable more. Young African. Americans to enter the technology industry. I should note that the LP's who've put money into the Cultural Leadership Fund are pretty much all celebrities, corporate executives and some athletes. So not the scrappy would be investors who guerrero says he's hoping we'll get a foot in the door with something like the diversity writer. And teepee insights piece from last month notes that the Cultural Leadership Fund has invested in sixty five companies and of those just three have at least one black founder and eleven have at least one female founder. To saying maybe more conversations wouldn't hurt. Cleaner and sequoia didn't get back to us in time for air. And here's what else we're watching in tech on Tiktok watch apparently, maybe you Walmart and Microsoft might team up to buy it and then Walmart would pivot Tiktok towards a more full on ECOMMERCE shopping experience. So creators and influencers could just. Sell you things which listen again privacy and data collecting are real concerns with Tiktok may be no more so than with facebook instagram. Google or Amazon, but considering the awesome and fun and diverse breadth of content on talk and the true love that people have for it. You ve kind of couldn't even engineer sadder fate. tiktok CEO Kevin Meyer who just took over a few months ago saw that Pale horse coming and promptly quit the announced the move Thursday Stephanie who produces marketplace? Tech. Alvarado our assistant producer Michael Lipkin our senior editor Becca Wineman, and Robin Edgar our engineers I'm Ali. Would that's marketplace tech..
"alejandro guerrero" Discussed on Buccaneers Observer
"They've got an APP so download the free anchor APP or go to anchor. John F get started all right so let's talk about Tom. Brady Brady contract. We got the details. Let's talk about Tom Brady forever okay. A little smitten the Brady observer so it is a two year fifty million dollar contract. All of guaranteed there's another nine million per year in incentives. No nine million in incentives. Total four and a half million per year. The box cannot trade him or franchise tag him which I think is a very fair contract. I was actually surprised. Yeah Very Fair. I was actually very surprised that it was only two years. I figured he'd want at least three year contract but two years two years. It was like what you said earlier in the podcast that when he was negotiating with the buccaneers it was more like he was interviewing them with. Jason Light and Bruce Arians. That's all according to rich drown. Tampa Bay Times to take that with green on salt. But you're saying well. Yeah I mean you got does his work but sometimes he's not correct. The was that he predicted earlier. This season that we said this is the same guy that said. Dear McCoy is going to be here. I think Tom Brady thank God. We need to go back and look that up. I know gotta give him props words. Do WE HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE. But we also give him praise when they do the job. Well Tom Brady. Did propose exact same package to the buccaneers and the chargers his requirements. Which were that much. I mean I I was expected. More money into you. Know things such as Decisions with player personnel. WanNa bring certain players over that that the media's been saying that those were kind of his wish list and there was so much of that that you figured well whether smokers fire but now very and he just doesn't WanNa get traded doesn't want to be franchised boom. That's it any wanted. Everybody saw number and I think he had similar requirements. New England in the later years said he didn't want it. How in the World I mean is twenty five million dollars. I mean the relatives sent such a lot but I mean they paid him. Twenty twenty three million. I mean why. Wouldn't they do twenty? I just don't get it. I don't know they wanted him year to year from their reports. I've listened to from what my research tells me. Extensive Research He wanted a longer term commitment and they treated him just like they treated anybody else in the Patriots Organization. Bella Bella checks approach to the general manager position in all his contract. Negotiations are if you WANNA get paid. You can go somewhere else but if you want to take less money and win stay here and it was no different with. Tom And I think they kind of felt that he was at the end of his career and didn't want to be locked into a contract with him. It just seems very strange because you know I mean he. He's only got a two year contract with US Patriots. Were going to give him a one year contract. I don't understand why he would care that one way or another and you know. He made twenty three million last year. He made two hundred thirty five million over his career with the Patriots. I from what I understand. There's a quarter of a billion dollars from what I understand. There was a lot more to it than just the money. It wasn't about the money apparently not because he could have gotten a lot more money from US absolutely from anybody but the relationship in the last few years. Kinda deteriorated. He had his trainer and I don't know if he's his business partner but they do the TB twelve together. Alex something I forget. His name and bill ballot check twenty seventeen kicked him out of the facility is because he was kind of giving conflicting advice to the other players in the Patriots Organization he was. He was giving conflicting advice versus what the Patriot staff was telling the players there. There's reports they're blaming him for Ron GRONKOWSKI's injuries while the trainer right so that happened. In Seventeen December late at twenty eighteen. He was banned for Boarding Patriots. Jets had sideline access. Revoked was only allowed to treat player to to treat Tom. Brady no other players. Imagine the guy's name is Tom. Guerrero career Alex Guerrero. Imagine he's going to be coming with Tom. Brady to Tampa. Probably I think I heard a report that he also sold his house up north kind of the same time that Tom did. That's GONNA be interesting. Drama Yeah Yes. I think that there's just been a few things over the years that made the relationship untenable and from what I understand. Tom Wanted to feel more appreciated than when he was at New England. You know he wanted to have fun and also be appreciative for his contributions will love. You hear Tom. You can have all kinds of fun. I think that'd be a is the perfect person to do that for him. Well I think be as appreciation love for the game and the quarterback position is really uniquely suited for what Tom Needs at this point in his career and be a is such a psychologist when it comes to these players and he's perfectly fine tailoring how he treats each individual player to their needs like Andrew. Lock for instance was a little more sensitive so he wasn't someone that could get up in his face yell at because he would take it too hard so wasn't he the one it was Carson Palmer. You know a veteran who had been in the League for so long that be a new Carson had earned respect and he was another one that was not going to get up in his face and yell at so instead he would take it out on the backup quarterback to try to get the message across Carson without disrespecting him so be a is very good at navigating these complicated personnel issues. Yeah I don't have any problem whatsoever. Worried about ARYANS and Brady getting longer areas treating Brady correctly areas. You know the great with Winston Winston just didn't fulfil his part of the bargain. I felt I don't know just kept making bad decisions. I think Tom after being somewhere. So long plane under the same coach moving to a new system. That's very player friendly. I think it's just going to revitalize him. I think that we're going to see a lot from Tom Brady this year. I sure hope so. I don't want him to come down here and stink the joint. Do like a lot of free. Do just come down here and get a paid. Get payday bask in the sun. They'll Rivas Chris banker. There's so many of them owes Johnson very good her Jackson. Who was the defensive? End from. Cleveland now assets meikeljohn withdraw. The ghost The left tackle from Cincinnati at our member that one there's so many of them Anthony Collins. That was his new mint. Yeah we've had our share free agency busts so Yep Brady's come down here could bring his TB twelve business in his body coach Alejandro Grow. Who Interesting figure this guy's been busted about F. T. C? For Hawking fake supplements and you know. He Practices Alternative Medicine Basically He. He's got a bachelor's degree or a master's degree in Chinese Alternative Medicine from a California College. That doesn't even exist anymore. So the guy seems like a snake oil salesman but he he's worked with Tom. Brady Willie mcginest lot of Julian. Aetna yet Julie. Alleman WES Welker. You know a lot of these guys. Swear buying well and even if it's the placebo effect. I don't really give a shit. Is this results the results so he can do whatever he wants if it means Tampa winning. I'm all for Tom Brady like we said it hasn't missed game since two thousand eight due to injury that's quite impressive so you know bring down. Don't care seems to be like he's a he's more than just business partner and a personal trainer. He's also a spiritual guru and he's godfather to her son. I mean this guy has entrenched himself in Tom. Brady's life so you can't get Tom Brady without getting Alejandro Guerrero of here. We go chase stain man dom job down. He's going to be all up in the advent one health center which is funny because it is the advent one health center in here. You have an alternative medicine guy coming up in that place you know one of the reasons why they had a problem with him in the Patriots Center is because the quote unquote scientific based trainers. There did not agree with what he was doing. So it's GonNa be interesting to see how our advent health center people taking. I mean we do have. The Medical Center is right beside the Books Training Facility and hospital cancer research. All I get stopped going to be interesting to see how they take the one hundred or air coming up in there telling them what to do. If that's even the case who knows what will happen with the Patriots. Now decide stuff. An I think the people of Tampa are just so excited to have him. I don't know that the staff is really GonNa care all that much at this point you know in New England while I know that they are very said that he's gone and the fan base as a whole I mean at but I don't think I think you at a certain point start to take it for granted. Yes Oh yeah I mean there are people that are fans of the Patriots. Have never not known. Having Tom Brady as quarterback I would I would actually say the vast majority of the Patriot fan days has never not known. Tom Radios quarterback because the Patriots sucked. I mean when I was growing up back in the day when we threw rocks instead of. Footballs the dinosaur dinosaur. Oh my goodness lost my train of all that will happen when you get the youngest. It takes them Ginseng Alejandro Guerrero gets a screen. Greens that's right that's what he was blessed by the FCC. Yeah he claimed he was a doctor. Ftc has made gave him a lifetime ban he cannot portray himself as DR claim. He's a doctor. And he cannot hockey any nutritional supplements with unverified scientific claims. He was only fined. Sixty five thousand dollars though. So you know. Wasn't that big of a deal. I guess which don't doesn't the FDA not even regulate settlements no this wasn't fda this was the FTC because he did an infomercial for the Supreme Greens product a supplement and they said that basically cured cancer and all this good stuff and FTC got involved. And you know it was he was. I'm not even sure if he was the business partner. I haven't read that whole case. I'm just getting you know information here and there I don't know if he was the owner of the business. Don't think he was if anything. He was partnered up with a couple of other people but he was a bit player. That make a whole lot of money off of it so and and with Tom Brady actually had a thing together. He had a thing six degree nutrition. And Tom Brady and wes welker and a bunch of people were pushing it and it ended up falling because it didn't do to give an FTC. Got Him about that too because he had neuro safe a supplement. That would help you recover and protect you from concussions. Go over so well with MTC. But it's going to be interesting to see what happens with that. I don't have that. They'll even be there long enough to wear out their welcome. Or you know of the. I mean we got Tom Brady to. It's a two year run all right. Well I can tell you. I was a personal trainer for a while..
