34 - Creating Outsize Impact with McKeever (Mac) Conwell,II of RareBreed Ventures The DMV (Washington, DC | Maryland | Virginia) Business Show

    • Business

In this week's episode we have McKeever (Mac) Conwell,II, Founder and Managing Partner at RareBreed Ventures out of Baltimore, Maryland!  He is from Baltimore and played sports growing up but was really good at math and science, played football and was in the robotics team and engineering club.  Mac's entrepreneurial journey started in 2010 when he and two of his best friends decided to start a company.  In 2012 it started to take off, they got into two accelerators and a few years later sold the IP of the technology to a Fortune 100 company.  He immediately founded a second company right after, that ultimately failed and shares what he learned from that experience and the difference between his first and second startup.  You are always learning, you either win or you learn.   It is not easy being an entrepreneur and he mentions how hard it is, it's a long game and it's a hard game to play.  He started the first and only state backed pre-seed fund for women and minorities in the country here in Maryland called Builder Fund at TEDCO.  Mac provides great valuable advice to anyone interested in investing in the venture world today, and shares how he sources his deal flow and that the most important thing to him is creating an outsize impact!
