If this was the Oscars, this would be the Best Film winner. We looked at listens, shares, downloads and likes and hands down, the top episode of 2015 was Chamillionare’s “From Rap Ventures to Venture Capital.”
Early in his Grammy award winning career, rapper, Chamillionaire learned some valuable lessons about business. Whether bootstrapping his own sales of mixtapes, negotiating higher payouts from his label, developing off the wall promotional marketing schemes, or reinvesting his money into multiple ventures, he always looked for smarter and better ways to achieve success. Fast forward to almost 10 years later, where Chamillionaire is a key investor in Maker Studios, an adviser to several startups and established companies, and now entrepreneur in residence at Upfront Ventures, Los Angeles’ largest venture capital fund. On Innovation Crush, Cham dishes on everything from growing up poor, to serial entrepreneurship, world changing technologies, avoiding social media, and having never wanted to be famous. feat. guest co-host, David Wong.
