Ever wonder how to make change from your current career to a totally different one? This week on Venture Vignettes, host Riana Shah speaks with Justin Davis on how to transition into investment from a radically different industry. Justin Davis was formerly a professional basketball player who played in Europe and for the NBA. Now, he’s a portfolio manager at REDF, a venture philanthropy organization, where he oversees investments and is a part of the impact lending team, helping identify and support new lending opportunities. Before joining REDF, he got his MSX degree from Stanford Graduate School of Business and was a Community Engagement Officer at the Kapor Center for Social Impact, where he developed and led multiple initiatives that introduced youth of color to computer programming and tech careers. Listen to how Justin made the transition from playing basketball to tapping into his passion to help people, organizations, and companies. --- Support this podcast:
