Episode Description

Anthony Tolliver is a well respected vet in the NBA, who's versatile skillset has brought value to every team he has played for. High flying blocks, dunks, and a smooth jumper has given AT a fruitful career for many fans to enjoy. But I wonder if many of AT fans know that he is a business man, who was an entrepreneur starting in HIGH SCHOOL. When he wasn't at HS or AAU practice, AT was running his own car detailing or lawn moving service. During his playing career Anthony got into real estate and venture capital. He started AT properties to invest in real estate, as well as 356 ventures, investing in various seed stage companies. Anthony now has many different property holdings, and has a venture portfolio that includes the likes of Lime, Active Faith, Players Media Group, Big Blank Co, and more. Anthony talks about the evolution of the NBA, peels back the curtain on his investment philosophy, shares some of his experiences with investing, and chats about doing business with Boban and Shaq.
