Skin in the Game VC Podcast

Florida Funders Managing Partner and "Skin in the Game VC" podcast host Tom Wallace believes that entrepreneurs are game changers and that the companies they envision, create and build make the world a better place. Florida Funders is a venture capital firm and angel network that invests in early stage technology companies. Traditionally, angel investors have not had equal access to the amount of proprietary, vetted deal flow and investment opportunities like a professional venture investor. This podcast was envisioned to educate, connect and activate accredited investors to get skin in the game and invest like a VC.
