"CAS website. You've got this advisory board that spans lots of entrepreneurs entrepreneurs very senior company executives people in entertainment any think about that specific network and how you use them each ones different right so we have thirty people people are firm really as twelve people on the team in each person investment team is working with a managing different advisors for different goals in so you have some people who you really just want alike bring to certain things because they bring people around them. If you want to be around especially couple of entertainment guys of they're going to be at something. It's easier to all right and it's easier to get the get access to things where whereas others others are specifically really really helpful for getting deals done in a certain part of healthcare certain parts of finance or whatever what's the to go back to the old Michael Lewis expression. What's the new new thing right now in the valley. I think the most important question in metro capital is what's possible now. That wasn't possible five years ago right because if you want to invest in ridesharing we did before the phone it doesn't makes sense twelve thirteen years so as you had done it within a few year window to really make a lot of money on it and so I think right now there's a few areas but right now the most exciting setting area to me is the renaissance in Biology. You're seeing going on what particular aspect of biology is turned in a lot of areas into information sciences while as well as just like a life science science and so it used to be in the valley. You're either life science guy or you're an. It guy but they're literally platforms that can do things to sound like science fiction right now like one of our companies simply. Go is the leading gene any other company and there's a data network effect so they've got much much more accurate than anybody else gene editing which means they can engineer cells. Nobody else engineer which is also selling sells directly people say Gimme the cell with these twelve thousand people ordering from them now and that's growing an amazing speech and it turns out. There's always do cell therapy. Do things like that and then there's because of newsouth therapies there's other our tools is a whole another company. That's this sorting sells a billion in a time using semiconductor technology and it turned out that applies time tens of therapies and there are saving lives with ads. There's all all sorts of these things that you never would've even thought of doing five years ago there possible now. The list goes on in terms of these kinds of biology. It crossover thanks so when you have a set of opportunities retuning. How much do you dive into just that sector and then just keep going deeper. or how much do you kind of bet on just one company when opportunity well so. I think there's a lot of things going on sectors actress. We've built a team rounded and we spent a lot of time on my doubts about twenty five percent of what we're doing as a fun. I'd say within the Renaissance and Biology area right now join over time can change so I want to get a a little bit time turned some fun closing questions. What's your favorite hobby or activity outside of work family while my favorite hobbies probably policy work we're trying to do nonpartisan partisan type things where he right up legislation or other things that are trying to help fix the government..

"I was able to raise with my network most of the remaining four hundred forty million dollars raised but it was really really great to have him and have a help early on it turned out that the way we understood entrepreneurship way we manage things are preferences provide different gone through fewer bigger things having a lot more people on my team still a lot more more connections in the network. We held a lot of events I like doing lots of thesis papers and whatnot so we have different ways of doing things the most team came with me and we split off our third which now call ABC. I see so what you're segment of venture landscape. Today venture capitals obviously at much larger asset class than it was ten or fifteen years ago which which makes a lot of intuitive. It's much bigger part of the economy right so used to be in venture capital that maybe you'd have people coming to Silicon Valley. Who are the does or who run different special initiatives for big companies companies. Now the people coming in Silicon Valley are the CEO's the fortune five hundred companies. It's the people who are actually making the decisions and actually out the corporate strategy for the biggest companies in the world. That's fraud reasons right because the technology is redefining. What's possible in these industries so venture world has become a lot broader and causing a lot more things than having to do a lot more money at stake. How do you stay competitive entry. Actually a few different things at say one is that the people who are running the top venture firms right now are almost all founders unders successful companies and so as someone who's founded a few quite successful companies as big advanced hunters. WanNa work with our founders and if you look at the very big names venture capital obviously Marc Andreessen very well known enter Peter Thiel who I work with learn a lot from or Marceca sauce on the board of is there starts. I've learned from both those guys or if you look note Khosla or even Reid Hoffman did linked in who's with the the pay path list goes on and on like all these same people have heard of their founders of big companies and so there are very rare exceptions from the previous generation. I think March is great exception of someone who never found that a company and I think you could do that in the eighties or nineties and be aggressive capless. It's very rare these days so first of all being a founders advantage. I think second of all being in touch of being close to lots of other founders is very important. Jordan says one thing we've spent a lot of time doing is we happen to have a lot of friends who built companies. We've enjoy spending time with them. It's not my social life is here in Silicon Valley interacting with other founders and that's you have to do that to do things well counters that wants to know where the town's going what's going on. They're kind of decor top than our way to put. It is an L. A. If you want to know what's going on you probably I want to hang out with the list actors the diplomatic them in DC pylon like with the senators with people around the president of the heads of agencies. The founders are the ones who run things here in Silicon Valley number one one so let's walk through kind of step-by-step your investment process and just start with where the ideas come from the end up investing in a Lotta ways that come from half of the deals are and referred from other founders. We're talking about a lot of them. Come from looking what we want to build ourselves networks. That's the one thing we do at our firm. That's different than a lot of other firms. Is We still use about ten percent of the fun on towards things we're building ourselves and we're very involved entrepreneurs and a lot of times. I'll be looking at a space with a really really deep on the macro happenings area of healthcare what's happening in Syria.

"I grew up right around here. In San Francisco. Go Bay area right in Silicon Valley and I guess when I was thirteen fourteen fifteen my friend's older brothers raw building companies because it was late nineties so I started at pretty interested and what was your first venture. First thing I started myself was actually pounds here but I was. I was involved with a bunch of things in high school. One of my friend's fathers was senior. Intel off any gossip bunch of really inexpensive chips and we we overclock them and then we got him to to give us the materials to super cool it and play with that. It was really good for playing quake too but you know it wasn't it turns out. No one else really wanted to buy them so it was much more exploring and be part of other people's companies for the first four or five years. I guess pay Pal for Serious Company. I was apart as an intern for a couple of years. What what was your angle. Did you come at it from technology side from the business side the computer scientists originally so I studied computer science when I was Gosh Ten or eleven my friends Tommy to program and we built games. We built programs. Would your math homework for us and that sort of thing and then pay pal. I saw a lot of really smart people going there so I actually got turned down the very first time am I applied there as a programmer. When I was quite young Max luncheon who's now a friend I mean do stuff on the white board and we debated things and they never got an offer from that but then Peter brought me back the next summer and I started started working at paypal and so you went from pay pal originally into Peter's ecosystem yeah exactly so I got to know Peter from entrepreneurship suffered from a paper he'd started called the Stanford Review. Show is editor of and start talking about different things with him and he brought me in along with a couple of other people as a summer intern in the I ended up working for his family the office and I helped him US starting a hedge fund and I helped higher bunch people there so I kind of started working with him on a bunch of things and what was the original idea propounded here well you know they're actually a lot of things being started at the time at Clarion. The Hedge Fund in some of them were quite crazy. There's this thing that was like trying to mental stimulation that was supposed to do things. Thanks good for your brain that ended up being people nightmares other effects to talk about. There was a spam company. There was a restaurant listening millions lars on there's lots of things and of course Peter there was also the time a big investor facebook's. That's another facebook founders really well so just there's all sorts of things going on some of them crazy some of them not as crazy obviously although it was really hard to tell at the time what were the best nice things in it and hired a bunch of my friends at the hedge fund help us with programming and building things and some of them really didn't like finance very much since waste where we're going to work on and we'd had this idea that initially repeaters idea from pay pal like these people were talking to the secret service at the FBI helping us. We try to arrest these bad guys tweet building better technology for them doing something to take. We've learned and apply it to DC. So the idea came from sort of being there inside clarion well. The idea was from pay pal originally where the Chinese and Russian mafia were stealing sealing off our money in there about a competitor's bankrupt to these online money laundering efforts. That's from hacking into the system. Yes Sir so you go to a seven eleven and buy something and the person some behind the counter somehow takes. Snapshot Writes Down Your Credit Card number and because there's now Russians online as of the year two thousand two thousand one ninety nine who are willing going to pay a lot of money for credit card numbers. Maybe five ten bucks you write down a few hundred of these. It's a nice way make money on the size as someone in they take the money run it through pay pal by the time you realize it's fraud fraud the money's already out of the system and then pay packets hit by a charge back so there's all sorts of versions of pay pal losing huge amounts of money to allow competitors and what role did you initially play at here so pound here. I was the founder who created the company and got going there. Lots of things going on around the time it's idea he played with. I took some of the people who had hired tired. Hedge Fund for better or worse. I became a leader the hedge fund the number two guy there was a genius but was also not really a manager so I was kind of helping me lots of things and just kind of fill the avoid as a overconfident twenty one year old running this paper on this thing and run a big drain account there and debating the trading with Peter and then allies guys working for me and a few of them. She didn't really WANNA work finance stuff and I said you know what let's let's prototype. My roommate is down for at the time really really bright guy she along with me we started just running and staying up late at night and sketching applic- different ways that the product could work for the CIA missing Peter to give us a pleasure to fly out and talk to people we knew in DC and he knew in DC a few other adults there were times he this is crazy as even worse than your restaurant and your other ideas. You're doing stop these kids from talking to these people and then to headed to take off from their point in time. Did you leave Claremont. Just dedicate to pound here. We got a little office away on Sandhill road appears old offices and we started using that and started building it out and Peter helped us bring on one of the guys from pay pal became another Co founder Nathan he just started working on it and I was working on it part time we were testing it out and trying it out but it was about a year and Judas Clara starting to get really exciting and I ended up moving there fulltime to start start hiring at the team ended up high most of the first hundred people on help from the products and built it out and at what point in time did you say okay this things off on a tone and time to step away. It was about five or six years of working on it pretty intensely in hiring team building a culture and what happened was is that we built out the government side in about three or four lawyers into it was unclear how long governments I was GONNA take to ramp up so I signed to build the finance side of the company as well so so pounder ended up building out a commercial division where we started with the finance side and we had a few early customers like bridgewater another issue ended up using a system for over ten years as with their analysts did their work so really built out a commercial side of it as well as that was scaling. I'd I fully vested my shares in the company about four or five years in and I was as another division in the company by realized. Maybe we should do something on my on more of I was really passionate about this for Outta par so I stepped aside lied about five and a Half Years Union started working on adipose instead until we're the antequera idea come out of his partially from stuff pound here with seeing when I was seeing in general is building my own very small family office at at the time and realized that that s face was very broken the technology religion at work for it a talk to my friends who are running large offices they had similar complaints and the big theme we have which in general in world in the last ten years and Silicon Valley is. There's these industries where there's platforms that should be using data run them better and that are not realize if you WANNA fix a lot of different parts of the financial world. You needed a platform what form this is on top of the money. So part of the idea was to be the software for our as for family offices for banks and be able to have lots of ways that you can kinda talk to the money through the platform and when you dive into one of these ideas you mentioned a couple times your friend for your roommate from Stanford a bunch of your friends. How do you start to build one of these off of the idea. Well I think the number one thing is getting the very top talent with the computer scientists you WanNa culture where people are really really obsessed. You want to agree on what the mission is and why missions important and yet have mission in a set of people that attract the other people on the becomes a positive something so this is a very intense few years getting them going and convincing others to help you and making sure his own enough of it and then I'm a product guy so it's catch up the product than you. I have to have the marketing sales analysis and you have to go entering talk to a lot of people get a lot of feedback evolve the product time based on that one of the key things for the early engineers is they have to to be on a mock up quickly. You need to get feedback ain't data rate and at what point in time did you shift from being an operator to venture capitals so the thing is really proud about pounds here and then later at par is we had some of the very top talents panthers rate number one in Silicon Valley for the engineers. We were attracting and what happens. A lot of talent will come a place for three four five years. Some of them will stay the whole time still people who've been there for fifteen years now but a lot of them after a while but go on they'll. WanNa build something around so I had probably about ten or eleven different from France who had worked with in some capacity pounds here or even out of pure parley on building things on their own and I was being small investments in them from my office. I was advising them and I realized so that's something I really enjoy doing even more than enjoyed Brian the company day to day. At what point in time did you say okay. I'm going to start a venture capital firm that created. I guess it was formation. Take the time yeah. Formation Eight was the first real serious firm had a small fund. We called the before and that the fund was just with family in France in my own money and we did a bunch of angel investing and that was actually really good because even though that fund is over ten exited great. I also did a lot of dumb things so I think you learn by doing things right so so you want to make mistakes before you do it with larger amounts of money but but after doing that seeing it working well started have really strong opinions a scientist start a fund two thousand eleven. I guess when we decided to start it close. Our first fund the very end of two thousand twelve and then at some point in time. I guess some of your original partners cited not to continue in you continued on yeah you know I think everyone has different ways of running and managing these things and so one of the things we always talk about with our entrepreneurs defined unfair advantages because he's so hard to start one of my unfair advantages. Starting permission eight was the Meyer early partner is Family Bill Elgin Korea. His father gave us fifty million dollars anchor..

"So nick. This is a complicated story. But what do we know about the funds that carlos goan used used for his investments in silicon valley startups so this story really begins in twenty fifteen and that year the the goan set up open investment vehicle in delaware who'd shotgun investments and this vehicle is to invest in startups in silicon valley so do i this work does that going son antony who was working at the time for a silicon valley investor j. lonsdale he would find investments and find stops which he thought would do well and he woods either make the investment himself. If there were swollen investments they were larger investments he would oscar's dodds for permission and for funds to invest the money in today startup so for example he wanted to make an investment in grab and so he amount his dad saying the grab was interesting investment and his dad sent over two million dollars and anthony obviously made that investment excellent so anthony who's ready to hunt going really provided the funds and obviously these funds now no we're coming from a nissan san client who is based in no man and who deposits money in a funding in lebanon and which then mr going direct rex to shogun investments okay so so what do we know about this connection with the fund in lebanon so the money which ended up at the delaware funding which was been invested into various start ups. We know that it came from an executive at a nissan distributorship co-defender kumar he's an international and he transferred the money from his bank account in switzerland to lebanon-based vehicle and then the money was transferred over to shotgun investments in the u._s. Now would japanese prosecutors allege. What nissan investigators believe is that. This money was actually siphoned-off from incentive payments that nissan were paying to the distributor in. I'm so japanese. Prosecutors specifically say that of two five million dollar payments that nissan may to the distributor twenty seventeen in two thousand eighteen five million of that they charge was diverted through the international defender cuma lebanon and over to show gun investments in the u._s. Now how tall us gun has very strongly denied these allegations yeah obsolete colors golden denies the allegations completely and forcefully and says he will fight inco and if given a federal prevail he says that this was a private investment he was providing private investment advice and that there was absolutely no link between screened the money that nissan which paints distributor and the money to defend ukraine with providing in that ended up as shogun investments yeah we'll forgetting any notion of criminality analogy. We still know that he had a personal business dealing with a client of nissan. What can we learn from this story about the broader gun saga. I think the story can paint a fuller picture of college <unk> actions. I didn't know of time the since november people who've been talk talk about this case in black and white is gonna give t's not guilty if he's not guilty then he should be allowed to go free. We we don't have anything criminal here but at least it allows houses to save more weakened <unk> very say that he started a kind of parallel business with a with a nissan client where he helps to invest forty million euros of funds coming from this person whether it's criminal or not i think it by international business standards. Many people say that that that shows somewhat questionable schnabel judgments and also decided that he didn't he didn't tell the company maybe create some sort of conflict of interest so i think it allows houses to to paint a picture of his actions in the years the japanese prosecutors and listening to the wall street journal's nick kostov and that's what's news for monday afternoon. I'm charlie turner for the wall street journal.

"It was falling in. There was a good gloss ability. If the quarry was not filled that part of hall stood would go directly into the bottom of the you know, two hundred feet into the bottom of the of the quarry filling Stearns quarry with debris from John Christopher's dumps solved. Two problems at once. Hauling quarry was a way of dealing with the Stearns Corey problem into remove a lot of stuff from the facility. This project may have also had special meaning for mayor Daley because Bridgeport was his neighborhood. He. Grew up in a red brick bungalow just a half mile or so from the quarry. Although Bridgeport today is home to a large number of Chinese and Mexican families. The neighborhood has long been mostly white an Irish Catholic and the seat of the Daley family's political power. In other words, the waste ship to Bridgeport a white neighborhood with ties to the dailies was transformed into a beautiful park the waste shipped out guilt gardens a poor black neighborhood without access to the halls of power was not. The transformation from limestone quarry to public park was actually alluded to in boss. A short lived TV show that was basically a thinly. Veiled dramatization of mayor. Richard m Daley's time in office Kelsey grammer starred as mayor Tom Kaine midway through season, one mayor Cain becomes embroiled in a political scandal that seems loosely based on the story of the north Lonsdale. Dumps mayor Kane had given the green light to an illegal dump that then poisoned the water supply of a nearby suburb. And now the town's residents are threatening to sue the city. As the media pounces on the story. Mayor Kane ducts their questions and goes back to his old neighborhood to find solace in his favourite local watering hole. He's known the bars owners since he was a political neophyte the two of them take a walk around palmesano park. Where trio of boys are standing by the water. Refer. Mornings. They come to watch the birds. Chemical dumps Buchan garden of. Before that. Somebody coming on convinced the city to build condos next to the fishing. Linda something else. In real life after the debris was removed from north Lonsdale. The lot that had been home to the mountain became an empty twenty one acre lot one of the biggest undeveloped parcels on Chicago's west side. So in nineteen ninety eight the city moved to buy the land and redevelop it and in order to redevelop the land the city began to try and convince the residents of north Lonsdale to let them turn it into something else as mayor Kane put it and that meant forcing out some of the residents who had lived through the worst of the dumping. Where they claimed he was going to be a big movie theater was back me. He's in a big movie theater. But every time we go to Chicago. He knew he'd never seen them. But if delay. I'm be teased.

"Credit. You get new trucks real business. They were not getting as many contracts from the city. Either local news reports from the time said that black owned firms got just fourteen percent of city contracts, even though black people then made up about thirty seven percent of Chicago's population. And city contracts were where some of the real money was. A city contract for hauling waste or sludge as Jackson jokingly calls it could be worth millions of dollars. And we realize this is legit flood. If you own the trucks, but said, sludges fudge if you're on the truck, you'll trucks what does that mean that is concerned dirty work? If you'll drugs is very lucrative business. The way Reverend Jackson tells it when he learned about operation, silver shovel and the mountain of debris in a black Westside neighborhood. He realized the cleanup presented a unique opportunity a potential silver lining to a really bad situation. John Christopher had dumped in a black neighborhood, and he had helped take down black politicians. And if you recall he'd done it in part by scheming to get contracts intended for black owned businesses. It was one of the scams he had used debris. The alderman Jackson did not fight for compensation. For people from north Lonsdale whose homes had been damaged or whose children had been harmed. But someone was going to get paid to clean up that site and Reverend Jackson believed that if anyone was going to make money off the site. Now, it should be black owned businesses ROY remove the community goes on going to be in good. Lucrative job. Someone to have the job better them. He reasoned than white owned firms like Lindahl brothers firms that had been responsible for the dumping in the first place. Ooh. One in from local news and community. From removing was you lose have the right to get paid for moving. So in January nineteen Ninety-six as Lindo brothers was removing its portion of debris from the site. Reverend Jackson came forward with a proposal. He wanted the city to hire black owned trucking firms to clean up the rest of the dumps. But according to Jackson mayor Richard m Daley was hesitant to sign onto the plan. Roseling? There was resistance because. Those who use a good. He's gonna job demanding there to get them. And the we demanded the right of that system. We reached out to former mayor Daley for comment, but he didn't respond. So Jackson turned to the same kinds of protest tactics. That had worked for him time and time again an impressive display of solidarity and power. The Northland residents could have used years before Roma's trucks. And the men removers una frigid Saturday in early February nineteen Ninety-six dozens of diesel trucks and bulldozers lined up along Drexel boulevard around the corner from Jesse Jackson southside office black truckers had plastered. There rigs with signs that read we want our fair share and hire us to clean up the dump. Then in a slow deliberate processional the convoy headed for north Lonsdale do full mile trip across the city, drove in miles. Now would just folks and practice and trailers and stirs the we land the and move across the city stop Trevor with rows. This mobile protest of black truckers was meant to draw attention and to prove that they were capable of the cleanup LaRussa could remove bad. Dumpsters and trailers and trucks and drivers and everything was required. Jackson led the caravan as they drove they were followed by police escort. Onlookers raised their fists in a gesture of solidarity. When the trucks arrived in north Lonsdale. They encircled the dump and blasted their horns, they were not given a warm. Welcome window brothers was still in the process of removing its portion of the debris. Knowing the caravan was headed, it's way, the company had blocked the entrance to the site with a three-foot mound of dirt and a pair of bulldozers..
