"So your download this app got on your phone you do have down as an Amazon account as well. That's kind of a different conversation. But basically what help them. You check your phone and you go to Walmart. Now. I live nine miles right now from downtown Bentonville and I have Source directly at their main store right across in their main office at Walmart and I my phone now and I'm scanning products with my phone with Amazon seller app and basically through the camera and through this software. It's going to read the barcode on a product so long up a product that's called Burt's Bees. I'm pretty sure everybody is familiar with parts fees and on the back of the UPC code and I know for a fact these are sold on Amazon cuz that's where I buy them. But anyway, so your phone off Amazon identify read that UPC code and what it's looking for through their software is to see if it is on the Amazon catalog that in their product catalog in their product offerings. And then and this is like a microsecond and you'll feel your phone kind of do a little buzz it's working and then boom it shows the listing and what it does is it lists all the important data that's important for us. As a flipper you can call her sells a product flipper. So Amazon is accommodating this they like, you know how fast it's selling meaning it's ranked. They show the profit. They you show the cost of one of this going to be for you to ship it into an Amazon warehouse who wait a minute they show how many sellers so they are setting up these data points and there's others that are young and we actually have a card that we send our members that there's like twelve different factors you want to be aware of but so basically it's like in real estate they by little they sell them they don't call it Arbitrage they call it house flipping. There's a lot of T shows to that effect. It's the same thing except this is so not about fixing up a product making it squeaky-clean and then shipping it in your taking a product off the shelf of a local store like Walmart like Walmart, you're looking for that price differential you consider these other factors and then you ship it in to Amazon as an FBA seller dead. You make the profit. Does that make sense or do you have any questions beyond that? Yeah. Well number one. I notice how you pronouncing Arbitrage differently than you could always reading arbitrations. You notice like lazy mouth here knowing opened it up and there are massage. But yeah, I think it makes a lot of sense though getting it to Amazon and guess their warehouse wage that that's really interesting. So you can go on Amazon. You can see third-party sellers we can go shopping Amazon everybody pretty much tops and Amazon all the time. They see these third-party sellers. Sometimes their crime. Sometimes they're not and I know there's a lot of different factors that go into that. I want to go too deep in that just yet. But I'd love to hear us what got you down that path new to using our charge in the first place. Yeah. It's been kind of a long journey for one.

"Hello and welcome back the equity the tech crunch venture capital focus podcast a my co host with me today but i have a special guest revolution ventures partner claire see you in the studio with us welcome to the studio claire i'm sorry that it is a mess but am i hope you get past that were really excited happy today yeah excited to be here in the studio actually looks great all right so today we're going to discuss investing outside of traditional vc hubs a revolution if you guys aren't familiar is eight venture capital firm founded by these aol founder steve case something goes about fifteen years ago that you guys sort of got going on why don't you tell us what revolution focuses on yeah sure so we started in two thousand five when he left aol really began as his family office investing of its balance sheet on over the next five years we invest in about half a billion across a bunch of early stage investments turned in a later stage stuff and and then around anytime we decided institutionalize largely because we got a point from a family office perspective are we could do new early stage investments at the exclusion of falling on an existing portfolio folio companies or do you follow lawns at exclusion of new stuff so 'em race it later stage growth fund that's when i started working with the guys and and then venture fund and we now have a rise of the receipts h fund as well so it's about a billion and a half under management 'em across the platform i'm really supporting companies from day one up through growth stage and what sort of companies are you looking for yeah so part of our thesis is focusing on investing outside of sort of hotbeds of venture capital we certainly do invest everywhere opportunistically but the core thesis is investing in second and third tier markets where you still have this pretty significant capitol cap when he zoom out eighty five percent of fortune five hundred companies are based outside of the bay area new york and boston but about two thirds of venture capital goes into those three areas so we see that as a huge gap on salt particular series series b level where revolution venturous focuses largely because it's hard at an early stage to cover the whole country from a source in perspective and then typical venture capital firms have a very high cadence of investing an honest concentrated approach as we do so it's historically been hard to manage a portfolio across c u s so i wanna talk more about what it means to be a second or third tier market but i'm curious so you've been a revolution very sad nearly a decade has revolution from the getgo had this focus on emphasis on investing in these underrepresented geography so yeah so it it happened at the very early days a little bit by chance a lot of the big outcomes that we had when we were originally institutionalizing and putting tracker together we realize were from outside of the bay area says that car was an original investment company in portland we moved to dc dc revolution money which is based in tampa florida extent health in salt lake city and as we start to realize that and be a little bit more conscious of it we start thinking about why fundamentally in these second third tier markets in idea on the back of a napkin doesn't get funded so you really have to bootstrap to a certain degree improve out really and economics before you can unlock capitals so typically the companies that were investing in at the series series b level are little bit farther along than their brother and would be in the bay area are new york valuation expectations were just lower so you own more of a company for a smaller check in on inherently if it's an exit that is a better outcome for you and it's just cheaper to scale companies in those markets employee retention is better cost of living is lower end so the capitol required to scale these companies and that's coming in after you and deluding you if you know when she case founded revolution coming out from perspective of like this is obviously good business which is to invest in these companies or the coming from a perspective of like it's not fair that companies in these areas just don't have access to capital like we do here in the bay area 'em neither really 'em i think are investing approach in the early days and and what we sell focus on today is what is now commonly referred to as disruption right so historically you know zipcar was basically disrupting the rental car market and it was not really thought of is a great venture back of opportunity nearly days that's obviously changed now transportation is a huge piece of wood venture capitalists focus on but from day one we focus on tuesday sleepy incumbent markets where technology can be an enabler of the new business model that makes it better faster cheaper the consumer or the business sets that serving a anywhere you can kind of changed the margins in the business to create a market leader that income and then i have to own or that can be a large standalone company an inherently when you think about the dynamics dynamics of investing in these old sleepy in combat industries a lot of court talent is focused regionally and so the idea that tech protect sake is everywhere it's probably not necessarily true the hub is certainly san francisco and silicon valley on but that's not what were focused on so let's let's talk more about you specifically how did you get interested in investing when he tell us what you were doing before you ended up at revolution nearly a decade ago so i grew up in pittsburgh pennsylvania which i highlight because it's a market that's really good for us on their lot of dynamics about the city that have changed tremendously since i grow up there even because the university system and technology advancement i came to the bay area go to stanford got a degree in economics largely because my dad was a math professor and he made me do math all the time so that was in easy part but i thought it was complete i mean growing up it was all very theoretical and he was the first time that so overlapped and i think investing sing is very similar in the sense that you're applying numbers and real intellectual rigor and quantitative analysis but at the early stage there's still a lot of up likability in your life and a real humanistic component to it which i i really enjoy right out of school i didn't mess and thanking you bs and elaborate finance and its initial sponsors group that was at the height of the meltdown in a way because quickly reads 'em rebranded to you'll be us restructuring it wasn't a great banking a handful of us leftist start our own which ended up being a little bit of a disaster and i started working for one of my old boss is from cbs largely 'cause i need a job and didn't wanna move onto pittsburgh although i do think it's a great market in that capacity still in an advisory will start working for steve oakland and when we were first institutionalizing so i sort of the junior person doing all the now says putting a tracker together and help us helping to radar first fund so you spent your entire career other end and investment banking or now in venture capital investing yeah since college okay so how did you end up meeting steve were you entrusted giving you know you're back on greg with pittsburgh were you interested in kind of a helping supporting companies in these other markets or was it just sort of like a chance meeting 'em not a chance meeting in that it was my job at the time but certainly as and we criticize his strategy and really and put more and more effort behind it and and had capital's deploy it was something that a really spoke to me from 'em my wife perspective but also from the perspective of a being differentiated and what is really crowded asset class things have changed a lot even in the last couple of years as far as attention being paid to just the fact that there is a funding gap across the u s i'm guessing ten years ago you know there wasn't a lot of knowledge or information out there even understand how much a venture capital investment in these different cities differentiate so could you talk a little bit about how it has changed thanks to you know the rise of various datta platforms and just people actually talking about it i think one of the key parts is real focus at the local level wiz nonprofit groups accelerator groups angel networks and see what's happened in the valley and have interest in spring that sort of economic growth and it makes the risk of bleeding her job and starting something lower when historically there was zero funding provided at that very early stage and that's great the challenge now is that regional funds can't support significant capital for a long period of time so you do need a bigger checks sorted from coastal firms to come in and an offer support in that regard i think it's it's gotten somewhat easier to identify but at the end of the day the series series b level a lot of it while a component of it certainly is the market size opportunity at cetera so much of it is the person in the founder that when you're when you don't have strong ties to those regions and can't diligence the person and understand their network and capability for hiring recruiting at cetera it it's more challenging and frankly higher fire risk levels if you're not integrated with that community yeah i mean i think it's similar to how in the last few years we've really come to realize that there's a major gap and funding for a female founders but the amount of capital going the female founders not seeming to actually increase year over year much at all now there were very aware that these founders and his other markets are in great nita capitol and kind of often just ignored a because so many vc's don't leave their home basis which is most often san francisco i think it's certainly changing at least we've seen that and the perspective of are portfolio companies attracting later stage rounds i think a positive for a lot of these communities is that san francisco is such a crowded market and valuations are so through the roof that people are realizing it's a really challenging to make money here if you're not a tier one tier one vc firm because the only way you're winning a deal is by paying through the nose for it and then the degrees of freedom that you have both from the perspective of strategic or next round of financing pricings that high are far lower right it's extremely competitive raciest a good deals and it's also extremely competitive for companies the higher here so they're a lot of reasons why people are moving away so let's talk about this 'em you know you called it a tier one to two or higher lower tier markets a what is a tier one market san francisco any other any other so san francisco new york i think on ally is quickly becoming one though there's still a little bit of a capitol gap there boston i would i would view in most areas to one market okay and what the cheer to market austin seattle denver boulder area chicago a washington dc is a tier three market just pretty much anywhere else whether it's i don't think we'd get i would say tier two tier sometimes i think the their core tenets of what we look for in markets that we view as emerging and really interesting one university system that throws off talent every year so we could use pittsburgh by jonathan example carnegie melanin university of pittsburgh a great source of talent historically what used to happen in pittsburgh is that that talent would be trained in leave now with google amazon facebook super all having pretty big corporate locations there the talents days and then the the kind of third part that we view is really important is supportive angel an accelerator and seed stage environment so that again the risk of leaving corporate job is not so big and importantly if you're a start up doesn't work out you could go back to that corporate job and having a pool of talent that's around that you could hire from is really important just to reiterate you need to have a really great university system public view nearby you need have of corporations base there so they have people obviously or they're in first place who were able to leave and then maybe go back what's the third ingredient that you need the third ingredient as for the most part having some sort of existing talent base with specific industry expertise so in pittsburgh there's a lot of robotics and i right so you might see because of that you just founders spin off their own robotic sort of yeah so what are some of d i guess second tier up and topping hubs a maybe a cipher from pittsburgh that you're really interested in that you see becoming a top tier yeah we spend a lot of time rally dern and we think is really interesting a similar dynamic says pittsburgh milwaukee madison area is actually really when i heard about m university amassing there or you don't realize how much consumer talent is actually there in like big corporate you have kohler you have ethic and it's a really great cost of living there in the the state it offers really interesting tax incentives for.

It's a lot of fun to do with them. You know, what I mean, the we're all racers on the main? It's all like a family. You know, what I mean most most of the guys on the team or old school razors? And. A lot of hard work is small team. We don't have that many people. So they put a lot of hard work, and we'll just they wanna see me run. Good and good for the family. And what happened I nursed the family? So that's the big cruciate all them and what they do. It's awesome. And so going for what are you guys need to take that next step because you guys have gone from a team that was like, you know, twentieth. Fifteenth on on good days to now your top ten almost every week. It seems what's next up? How do you get there? I guess I guess the Nick step in money is the next. You You know, know what what I I mean? mean, we're not all the way there. But we've gotten most of the way. So this comes along with a lot engineering and a lot of support. You know what I mean? That just more money. I mean, so we'll keep plugging away. And once we get everything together. And I think we should to build contend top ten you know, what I mean top five at some of the tracks. So what we're looking forward to do and trying to get get everything geared up for later on in the year for the chase. And see what we can do. And you talked about money being the biggest, you know, proponent this point to moving forward if somebody wants to sponsor Rienzi in the thirty nine car, go about that rise Gration Facebook or Twitter or something like that. You know, what I mean, come on more and see what or? Do you wanna mean, Danny Dugan sponsorship? I think it goes through our Rienzi, Grayson. So though the hook it up any guy except for that Oriole Hattie, where's Braise, but they didn't look too style yesterday. But that's all. Part of a new team. You know what? I mean, they need some pitching. Yeah. For sure I'm a Rangers fans. I know what that's all bad. They never have any bitching. Yeah. Yep. Good. But we're here. Good at Texas. I don't know. We're ended up practice, but it's tough out there right now because it tracks changing it seems like that the PJ wants coming up. So it's throwing everybody throwing us for a loop, which we hope it's that I think it is because we haven't done too much of the car and all of a sudden just gone drastically different ways. It'll be fun to keep up with during the race. And should be up for the challenge. And you mentioned that you guys have some newer upgraded cars this year, where are you getting the cars and the Motors from our CR CR, so they come from the two, you know, what I mean, they're from just like what they got. And so is there a technical alliance where they're also sharing some data with you? Or is it just carring Clinton, just Garnett Clinton? And that's what I was saying the nailer step money. Next. That's the next money. So well, you know, you guys might be able to do that do take oriole's hat off more sponsorship. They look yesterday.

It's all me. That's insane. I mean, the stars of NASCAR come to the final AP weekly to chat and only good things happen afterwards. It's very true. It's very true unless they get engulfed in flames. But we don't claim those. That's true. That's true. We also have something that we've been waiting for for a very long time. A Jimmy Johnson. It's been a while. It has been a while. So it's actually been long enough now where I'm not annoyed by it. Well, we had I think one bonanza in the middle of the off season just at random, and you question that one was really annoying because he hadn't done anything at that point. But actually did something this week. So it's it's deserve. That's why I figure, you know, be good week to do that. Yeah. Plus, he talks about the, you know, the ridiculous NASCAR qualifying garbage. So he does. Yes. We've got them talking about that. Despite him getting the poll he still has some things to say I got some of his post race audio as well. If you need it later. Oh, well, that might have been helpful to. But you didn't tell me ask him about his Twitter. I asked him about Twitter haters as well. All right.

He led the most laps was on his way to certain victory, but he doomed himself. Yeah. He at a little. So impatient. As he said after the race got a little bit loose. Kyle the groove collected it and just got more impatient. Again, trying to make up the spots that he lost waiting to get to pit road and make up the spots on pit road. He he put it in the wall trying to catch up too quickly. Yeah. His brother was a top ten number nine Kurt Busch. Then Kevin Harvick he seems to be you know, in that six to eight th place kind of guy. Now, he was not very happy. Either of this race. He was in the media bullpen and didn't understand why he was there because he didn't have a very good day. He was lucky to finish eighth. He was more like a fifteenth place car. Most today he has he's very upset about the tires. A good years brings racetracks. Yeah. You'll even posted something that there was no fall off. No there wasn't. I mean Denny Hamlin. We're gonna talk about what he did this week. But he had like four different problems on pit road throughout the day and made up all the ground both times throughout the day. Just by going with no tires, which you don't do ever especially amount of half track. But it worked.

It was basically the wild wild west of science an out of this time, we got new medicine made scientific progress but things spiraled out of control when research is took it too far. With starting out story with a man who stumbled into this world decades ago. So let me get just coffee, and then we can create his name is Sigmund Weizman or seek. He's a jolly guy loves to laugh, and as we sat down for coffee Zeke told me about growing up in Philadelphia fifties and sixties he's family was working class. No one had been to college. But see be dreams. He'd always wanted to be a duck down. So I finished college, and I was going to start medical school fast, though, he needed a summer job. And I thought well, it'd be interesting to do something that might have some relationship with what I was going to do in the future. And I thought well, maybe there's some research or medical research or either any kind of research, and it's this research that would plunge him into the center of what would become a national scandal. I didn't know I was. Too stupid to to be honest to the think anything more about the full any of that though. Sieg is just an eagle college grad looking for that summa gig. So he opens up the phone book. Yeah. I so I thought well, I'll look up research laboratories in the yellow pages. This is how naive I was. He's going alphabet cly and once he gets to the lettuce. See he sees a listing in small print clover laboratories, it was only a phone number and an address didn't have anything except a listing. Clova libra trees sounded medicine to Sieg. So he dials the number AMAN picks up and seek tells him I've just finished college. I'm going to medical school. And I'm looking for job. He said, you're exactly what we need this summer. Why don't you come to this address tomorrow morning and on meet with? You and you can decide if you'd like to do this this job. The next day said gets into his car and heads to the address he was given.

Zinc: The Tech Serving the Millions of Unsung Deskless Workers
"Invited Stacey Epstein back onto the show from zinc. The last time we spoke. She completely blew my mind with a stat about desktops workers and that they account for between seventy to eight percent of the entire global workforce. It's a genuine pleasure to get back onto the show today. So book up, hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to San Francisco. So we can speak with Stacy Epstein from Sieg. So I'm warm. Welcome back to the show. Can you just remind listeners of who you are and what you do? Yep, I am Stacey Epstein. I am the CEO of zinc and zinc is a technology company focused on desk Lous workforce's and it may not be a term familiar to everyone, but I can promise you, you've probably already interacted with the lists worker today. It is upwards of eighty percent of the population of workers, and it's those people that are not sitting in an office. They're not sitting behind a desk, they're not staring at a computer. They are coming to your home to install your cable TV. They're helping you at a retail store. They're working with you as you check into your hotel room and they're cleaning your hotel room. When you depart. Again, there are people that aren't staring at a computer screen or even a phone screen to do their jobs. And because of that, they are always. Is mobile and they're somewhat disconnected from what were used to you. And I kneel were probably both looking at our computer screens right now. We're looking at Email and we're looking at other applications that we use in our job, but that these workers aren't don't have the benefit of those kinds of connections. And so- zinc is an all mode, communication platform that helps connect these desk lists workers to the tribal knowledge in their organization, and whether that's texting or calling, or video calling, or sharing content with their peers or with their managers or receiving important information from their corporation. They're getting that communication that they need to help them do a better job, but wouldn't you spoke to you? You would really resonated with me when you talked about a kind of between seventy to eighty percent of the global workforce. Some of that stuff is just phenomenal, but couldn't even fresh your listeners memory about zinc as an also provide enterprise communication for destler Swick. And how important that is? Yeah, again, so these workers are there just disconnected and yet they are the face of your brand. I mean, I think of a company like dish network's who here in the US. They're a very prominent provider of. Satellite TV. Right? So if you want all you want the dish network in your house and you're going to get all your ESPN and your millions of channels and that that service doesn't work unless somebody comes out to your house and put that satellite dish on your roof and make sure it's working all the time. And so if that worker who is desk Lous right, they're never sitting behind a desk, they're showing up at your door and they're trying to get you up on your TV if that worker doesn't have access to experts when they have a question information, just anything that they might need to be connected to their company than than they have a hard time doing doing a good job. If you think about again, it's hard for us to put ourselves in their shoes because we are not desk Lous. We're sitting at a desktop and we're looking at a computer, but imagine the life of a dish network technician. They ring that doorbell and it is something dif-. Every single time every house is wired differently. The weather is different. The way you get up on the roof, the height of the roof, the personality and temperament of the person behind the door who wants their TV. Every single job is different and it's hard. It's a hard job and because of that retention is a big challenge in desk industries. And yet if whatever that person faces on the other side of that door on that roof, if they know that help from an expert is just one text or one video call or one phone call away. Then they have the reassurance too that they can handle anything, and it drives engagement and it also drives performance. And so that's what we do. We're an enterprise communication platform. It is not like SMS or I message or what's up. It is secure. It is provided by the company. There are group's set up their hotline set up there. Features that really help ensure that that that desk was worker can get to the knowledge that they need to do a better job in real time. The
