#71: Brian Reilly, Co-founder & Managing Partner at Will Ventures

Today I’m joined by Brian Reilly.

Brian is the co-founder and managing partner of Will Ventures — an early-stage firm investing across health & wellness, media, and consumer products.

In this episode, we discuss the firm’s $55M inaugural fund. We take a closer look at a few of their portfolio companies — including Elo, Liteboxer, and Breathwork. Then Brian talks through ideas and untapped opportunities he’s interested in backing.

Let’s get into it.
