“Fuck it… I’m just not going to play this traditionally anymore.” – Chris Sacca Chris Sacca was recently the cover story of the “Midas Issue” of Forbes Magazine. The reason: He is a newly-minted billionaire and the proprietor of what will likely be the most successful venture capital fund in history: LOWERCASE I of LOWERCASE Capital. He’s an early-stage investor in companies like Twitter, Uber, Instagram, Kickstarter, and many more. In this interview, we discuss unfair advantages, how Chris chooses founders and investments, stories of missed opportunities, the styles that differentiate Wall Street from Silicon Valley investors, and how keg parties can liberate law students from the tyranny of class (Chris completed law school without attending any classes).
