In conversation with: Toby Corey, Stanford University

Mastry, Inc. managing director Rudy Cline-Thomas explains the unique value athletes offer as technology investors. He observes that athletes are exploring opportunities well beyond consumer businesses, like enterprise software and fintech, and adds that bringing a diverse group of athletes onto cap tables and boards will help educate CEOs about concrete steps they can take to increase diversity and inclusion in their companies more generally, and contribute to closing the widening wealth gap in America.
