John J. McCabe ’65 Lecture Series: Part 2

A Conversation with Jason Calacanis

On November 19th, 2019, Professor John J. McCabe ’65 sat down with San Fransisco angel investor, technology entrepreneur, and podcast host Jason Calacanis.

Calacanis is a host of popular podcasts, including: This Week in Startups, and Angel. As a scout for top Silicon Valley venture capital firm Sequoia Capital and later as an angel, Calacanis has invested in 200+ early-stage startups including six “unicorns” (billion-dollar valuations). His book Angel: How to Invest in Technology Startups: Timeless Advice from an Angel Investor who Turned $100,000 into $100,000,000, was published by Harper Collins in 2017.

The Professor John J. McCabe ’65 Lecture Series exposes the St. Francis community to perspectives on financial topics from leaders and innovators in the world of finance and economics. McCabe is one of the country’s foremost experts on corporate governance, shareholder rights and their impact on the country’s wealth creation and capital formation process. The Professor John J. McCabe ’65 Lecture Series at St. Francis College will be an ongoing teaching and networking forum—it will highlight not only the career of John, but his friends from Remsen Street, Wall Street and Washington, D.C. Fundamentally, John hopes to spotlight wealth creation and capital formation, and how an “angel investment” in St. Francis College can truly transform lives through the gift of education.
