Investor Fireside Chat with Carey Smith from Unorthodox Ventures on how to build a $100 million business.

Any investor will give you money, and we get it — money is tough to turn down when you’re running a business. But if you want to build a company and not just an exit plan, you need expertise.
Unorthodox Ventures brings both to the table. Led by contrarian entrepreneur and Big Ass Fans Founder Carey Smith, our team of engineers, product managers and marketers have decades of experience launching extraordinary products and building enduring, adored brands.
Today we partner with disruptive founders who seek the same. Every year, entrepreneurs start more than half a million companies in America. Only 200 will ever reach $100 million in revenue. Carey and his team know what it takes to make it to $300 million. Let’s build something.

About investor

Every year, entrepreneurs start more than half a million companies in America. Only 200 of them will ever reach $100 million in revenue. Carey Smith knows what it takes. He led a company from $0 to $250 million in less than 20 years. What’s even more unusual is that he did it without kowtowing to investors or anyone else. Carey says his “secret” to success is just common sense, and he’s happy to share it with anyone willing to consider an entirely different kind of business plan.
