In this episode, Hall is joined by Lance Dietz of Chicago-based KB Partners, an early-stage Venture Capital firm. Lance touches on his background in Chicago, before he came to KB and the venture world. He discusses how KB came to the sports and technology space, and his advice for investors looking to get into that area. Lance also talks about the sports-betting space and how it is evolving with technology-driven companies on the enterprise side.
In addition, Lance lists some of the criteria he looks for in a startup and details some of the companies they’ve worked with and why. Finally, Lance talks about the challenges of keeping focus in a fast-growing industry with a constant crop of new startups.
