Joe might just be the nicest VC in the world, who happens to be SB Capital Partner @ Lerer Hippeau Ventures (investors in 400+ companies like Axios, BuzzFeed, Caspar, Warby Parker, and more). In a friendly chat recorded BEFORE the world turned sideways, Joe not only shares tips for minority entrepreneurs, but also comments on the investment world relative to diverse founders – and what keeps funds from doing more. Growing up in a blue-collar neighborhood with nonprofit parents – Joe’s view of finance is not rooted in material success, but in a desire to find fulfillment through his work.
