Marshall Newhouse

Super Bowl XLV Champion Marshall Newhouse had a 10 year NFL career he will never forget.

Episode Description

Super Bowl XLV Champion Marshall Newhouse had a 10 year NFL career he will never forget. While it was not easy memorizing more than 8 playbooks, it certainly came in handy in 2017 when Marshall was playing for the Las Vegas Raiders (then in Oakland). During that time, Marshall lived in San Francisco, and absorbed quickly the investing dynamics of Silicon Valley. Marshall has been angel investing since and is currently getting his executive MBA at Texas Christian University - M.J. Neeley School of Business. We chat about Marshall's journey in Venture Capital and the big free agency decision that lies ahead. While it's not a zero sum game, which VC firm will get to snag Marshall?!
