Most of us would be fortunate to be world-class at one particular skillset, but for Stephen Curry, being a three-time NBA champion and two-time NBA MVP didn’t stop him from getting involved in business too. I had heard about Curry’s versatile investment and branding company, SC30, but I wanted to get a more personal take on why he does the work he does off the court — and how he does it. Fortunately, at this year’s TechCrunch Disrupt, I had the chance to chat directly with the six-time All-Star and his investment partner Bryant Barr to pick their brains on their investment philosophy and how they think about building companies.
Though Curry and Bryant were roommates and teammates at Davidson College, the duo ended up taking drastically different paths. In 2009, Steph was drafted by the Golden State Warriors, the beginning of what would become an illustrious basketball career. On the other hand, Bryant would go on to work as an actuarial analyst at a major consulting firm, followed by two years of financial management at Nike and an MBA at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.
