Chris Sacca Guest Shark Tank Investor on Season 7
Owner of Lowercase Venture Capital Firm
|Chris Sacca newest Shark Tank Investor in Season 7|
Who is Chris Sacca, and how the heck did he become a Guest Shark in Season 7? As far as who Chris is, we'll, He's a very successful Venture Capitalist always wearing stylish Western Cowboy shirts. Sacca's joining the small elite club of Shark Tank Guest Sharks with a resume that's as impressive as any Investor ever seen on the Show. In fact, Chris Sacca's only the 5th Billionaire so far seen on the Shark Tank including ALL Angel Investors seen on the Show. Without a doubt, everyone knows the Internet Start-Up Companies He's personally invested in, and more importantly, worked with, to make Chris Sacca the perfect choice for a Shark Tank Investor in Season 7.
For starters, Chris worked for Google in a senior management position with mergers and acquisitions and was a Founding Team Member of the New Business Development Organization. At one time, Sacca carried six different Google business cards with as many roles while helping build the soon-to-be Internet Giant we know today.
Sacca eventually started Lowercase Venture Fund with Matt Mazzeo, investing in new Internet Technology Start-ups including Twitter, Uber, Kickstarter and Instagram to name just a few. In the process, Chris made himself a Billionaire before the age of 40 years old.
Aside from Chris Sacca operating one of the most successful Venture Capital Firms investing in a broad range of successful companies, a lot can be learned on the Lowercase Venture Fund website how you might make a deal with this soon-to-be Shark Tank Celebrity Star. But if you'd really like to know more about Sacca and how he went from $-4 million in debt to a net worth over $1 billion within the past fourteen years, you'll take the time to watch this three hour video posted below.
Not many interview-type videos can keep my attention glued to the screen, especially for three solid hours. But after watching the first ten minutes, I paused the video, rearranged my schedule, then proceeded to watch this entire interview uninterrupted. It's Really That Good!
Have you ever wondered what it's like sitting around brainstorming with Google's owners Larry Page and Sergey Bin? Or perhaps how an off-the-cuff $25,000.00 investment from a phone call about an idea called "Twitter" would soon be worth millions of dollars from a little trick learned while working for Google?
Chris even talks about becoming a Shark Tank Investor when He was on the set with Mark Cuban back in 2012 around the 2:15:00 mark of the video. It's interesting to note why Sacca turned down the Shark Tank when first approached to become a Shark (Angel) Investor.
One of the best statements (I- We Think :')) seen in this interview, and probably what helped Chris get into this small group of Shark Tank Investors, can be heard starting at 1:49:30. Sacca said, "I think there's a bunch of Founder's who realize like it may have felt cool taking money from the widest number of people and the highest price possible, but they're missing something from the equation". Sacca then goes on to say, "I think we're seeing a shift back to seeing it's not necessarily about taking the most amount of money, It's about hopefully getting the right people involved and then getting them honest, so they're not taking advantage of you". Now THAT'S spoken like a true Shark Tank Investor!
As far as the Skully Brand Western Shirts Chris always seems to wear, Sacca only shops at Vintage Western Wear where He says they take "Very Good Care of Him".
