Mike Gelb
The Consumer VC takes a look into early-stage consumer investing and venture capital. If you are interested in learning about consumer trends, have a b2c business and interested in learning about the fundraising process at the early stage, you have come to the right place. Mike interviews some of the top venture capitalists in the world that focus on B2C and consumer type companies or have a deep track record investing in these categories such as marketplaces, SaaS, social, CPG and non-tech subscription. Mike also interviews founders that are building some of the most disruptive consumer facing companies in the world. The conversation usually includes the insight the founder discovered, fundraising strategy, and the pitch. This podcast also includes bonus episodes. Each bonus episode dives into a particular subject that might not have to due with the fundraise or venture capital, but still would be helpful to founders. For example, a bonus episode on brand strategy or how to construct a board of directors. All bonus episodes will be clearly labeled. For all episodes, please visit www.theconsumervc.com.

Hey There,

Our guest today on The Consumer VC is Brian Reilly, co-founder of Will Ventures.

Will Ventures is a venture capital fund that focuses exclusively on leveraging the power of sport to shape the future. We don’t talk about investing in sport-related businesses that much on the podcast, so this episode was quite refreshing.

In this episode you’ll learn about:

  • Moments in Brian’s life that impacts how he invests

  • Why he’s bullish on sports-centric businesses

  • How COVID has changed the way he invests

  • Why he decided to first create a sports innovation lab before raising a fund
