Sway Minds 2018 Speakers
Joe Montana's Next Drive
Sway Ventures Founding General Partner, Brian Nugent had the rare pleasure of sitting down with Hall of Fame quarterback, turned serial angel investor, Joe Montana, to talk about the GOAT’s transition from the NFL to the world of venture capital. Tune in as Brian and Joe talk football, funds, and the future of tech.
Widely considered one of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time, Joe Montana personifies excellence and personal integrity both on and off the field. Yet the word most closely associated with him is not "winner"-it's "leader." During his career, Joe Montana led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowls Championships. Montana won more than 70% of the games he started during his 16-year career.
