Episode Description

Jeremy Jones made a national championship appearance and was Academic All-Conference Honorable Mention for the Gonzaga University Men's basketball team. Jeremy is now in Japan playing professionally for the Toyotsu Fighting Eagles. While Jeremy has played with a plethora of NBA players such Rui Hachimura, and Brandon Clarke, his most important teammate overall may be his co-founder JT Trauber, who runs JonesTrauber Capital alongside Jeremy. JonesTrauber seeks out a variety of investment opportunities, including early stage Venture Capital deals. We reflect on the Santa Clara/Gonzaga match ups, raising a fund while still playing professionally, and the industries JonesTrauber is looking to back next!
