VC firms are known for catapulting some of the most iconic tech companies into unicorn status and their founders into household names. However, they’re not known for looking at founders outside the tech bubbles or their own ecosystem, leading to a lot of missed opportunities.

Mac joins the show to talk with Scott about his entrepreneurial journey, a healthy look at the founder-VC relationship and how to help people with their ideas through investment.
