Looking back on the second season of investor education podcast Off the Sidelines
The series produced by Technical.ly and sponsored by Project Entrepreneur, a program by UBS, examines how to become (and stay) a better investor. Here's what we learned in season two.
Who is an investor and how is that changing?
The latest episode of our investor education podcast Off the Sidelines explores this fundamental question with Pam Kostka and Tracy Chou.
How can foundations and family offices invest for impact?
Elizabeth Killough of Untours Foundation and Lauren Cochran of Blue Haven Initiative explore how to align mission and impact on the latest Off the Sidelines episode.
How can more women actively invest their wealth?
Four in five women will someday manage their finances alone. Despite gains, many women with male partners still defer financial planning today to their spouses. Where can angel investing fit?
What can philanthropy and venture capital teach each other?
Knight Foundation CEO Alberto Ibargüen and VC Austin Clements offer perspectives in this week’s Off the Sidelines episode.
How investing in people can form a thesis of maximizing financial returns
Technical.ly’s investor education podcast Off the Sidelines features The Community Fund’s Lolita Taub and Right to Start’s Victor Hwang this week.
Great podcast with an interesting mix of guests providing unique insights into some of the most overlooked issues in VC/early stage investing. Nice focus on impact and mission-driven investors/companies too.
Great for wide range of audiences
Not only is this informative for potential investors, but for the other stakeholders in the startup ecosystem as well, who are curious to get some valuable insight from investment veterans, with a wide range of experience. Considered me invested in Off the Sidelines.
