Aaron Rodgers: Venture capitalist

The Packers quarterback has co-founded a $50 million fund that focuses on consumer-related companies

Superstar quarterback. NBA owner. Venture capitalist? 

That appears to be the case. Aaron Rodgers wants to help professional athletes evaluate investment opportunities.

Another Green Bay Packers Super Bowl MVP, Desmond Howard, is a partner in the fund.

In addition to professional athletes, investors include musicians, actors and entrepreneurs.

In a press release announcing the fund, Rodgers remarked:

As professional athletes, we're constantly approached with investment opportunities. With more and more access to deal flow, it's hard for any athlete or high-profile individual to adequately evaluate each opportunity. We are in a unique position to help drive positive outcomes for companies, particularly consumer brands, but the relationship has to be authentic.

Good move by Aaron. Excellent revenue stream when his football career is over.

It’s a relationship business and a need exists to help professional athletes, celebrities etc. manage their investments.
I wonder who is managing the business for him?

Thanks, Since ‘61

The Donald is more involved on the Real Estate side than the Venture Capital side. Besides no one in the U.S. will either loan him money or put their own money into a deal with the Imbecile.

For the last several years he’s been getting money laundered by Putin through either Deutsche Bank or Dansk Bank out of the Baltic. This is why he is all buddied up with Putin. Thanks, Since ‘61

Wow...! 61 is a precise example why Donny hits back hard. He's in your head - another TDS victim.

sam1,

So how do you come to the conclusion I am a Trumpster??

You should have information before making such a conclusion.

sam1,

Now there is a well thought out response. What I wrote did not support Trump or your TBD disease.

I asked about your confusion about reading my posts and your interpretation of them.

Then CBD came to mind. (popular ingredient now w/hints to the old days)

Time isn't relative to any fabricated anonymous story, after all it's only a story. Alex is that you? Though, time is relative to and has run it course on the lefts; treasonous coup attempt, and Climate money laundering scheme. I have too wonder, how is Ruth feeling these days - any news?

Putins Donald never got something right. throwing his dads money out of the window was his biggest accomplishment, besides running the country into the ground of course. He will be long gone as we will still working on fixing his mess.
He does not understands the simplest things my 10 year old knows. its funny when he talks about the stock market. But I bet he sells always something short before he twitters his senseless stuff. Just a loser who never had a job in his life. Men, the Clown only got his hate under his wig. Maybe thats why this flateearther is afraid of everything.
He is the opposite to Vince Lombardi, thats for sure.

You might want to read what you've posted before you call someone out for acting like a 3 year old. You should run for Congress as a Democrat, you'd fit right in. :)

I have the best orthography since the begining of time. like yuh can see here. And everyone knows that im the best, the most faithfull and smartest. Every fact is fake news. I swear by the flatearth. So sad that some just cant see that Im perfect. In Russian too, by the way. Maybe I start Mexican, takes me only 2 hours, could not be that hard if the Mexicans can speak it. Anyway, I love this country so much, thats why I try to destroy everything its stands for and for what generations gave everything.

thats right if it comes to brains no one beats the wig and his "well educated" flatearthers. He thinks the South won the CW, doesnt know how the flag looks and can not form a real sentence. I thought Morones are your heros. But your post was really perfect, he would be proud of you. ah, if he would care about average people.
