A growing number of wealthy tech investors are bucking traditional VCs and starting subscription-based 'rolling' funds

An increasing number of wealthy tech execs, like Facebook alum Dave Morin and Gumroad CEO Sahil Lavingia, are starting so-called "rolling funds," a new type of venture fund pioneered by AngelList that allows investors to "subscribe" on a quarterly basis. Some are attracted to the user-friendliness of the model's style and ability to publicly solicit investors, which might otherwise be illegal. Others see it as way to increase accountability for venture capital partners, who often make money on...

USC football moves forward despite uncertainty surrounding potential spring season

The writing on the wall had been legible to the USC football team for some time. Yes, the Pac-12 had recently announced its new, conference-only schedule in an attempted adjustment in the middle of the ongoing pandemic, and training camps were allowed to begin on Aug. 17. But USC still didn’t have clearance from L.A. County to begin contact practices, and the likelihood of that happening on time was slim. That, combined with the news about just-discovered health risks posed by COVID-19, had the ...

What’s next? UCLA football looks beyond postponed fall season

Well before the Pac-12 joined the Big Ten on Tuesday in announcing it was canceling the 2020 fall football season and all of its fall sports in hopes of beginning in January and playing through the spring, UCLA had been taking a cautious approach. The Bruins had returned to light workouts in July, with a feeling all along that a postponement or cancellation was inevitable. So, you can forget about the possibility of UCLA opening the season Sept. 26 against rival USC or a 10-game conference sched...

Ten Big Ten questions: How did we get to a postponed season (and more)?

The 2020 college sports landscape changed dramatically Tuesday when the Big Ten and Pac-12 announced they are postponing their fall seasons over concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whicker: Spring football is the right move for Pac-12, maybe for good

No law consigns college football to autumn, especially in a place where autumn doesn’t exist. The fallen leaves do not crackle as you walk toward the Coliseum or the Rose Bowl or Sun Devil Stadium. Octobers in L.A. do not bring sweater weather. Pac-12 football will not be played this fall, and, sure, that will leave a void. It will be no more painful than losing your 10 o’clock worship or your monthly hair appointment and not nearly as dislocating as losing your job. As the 40,000 or so empty se...

Pac-12 football shuts down: Coronavirus cancels fall season

Pac-12 football has overcome two World Wars, one Great Depression, the Spanish Flu, California earthquakes and a slew of other epic societal events, but it couldn’t beat coronavirus. The conference on Tuesday canceled the football season — and all sports competition — until at least Jan. 1, 2021, according to a source, succumbing to the pandemic after months of planning and hoping that its money maker could somehow be salvaged. The decision came a short time after Big Ten presidents voted to shu...

The rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the Theranos founder whose federal fraud trial is delayed until 2021

Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford University at 19 to start blood-testing startup Theranos, and grew the company to a valuation of $9 billion.

Apple CEO Tim Cook hits billionaire status

Apple chief executive Tim Cook has joined the billionaire's club, according to analysis by Bloomberg.

Apple's market capitalization is hovering around $2 trillion. Unlike several other big tech CEOs, Cook is not a founder-CEO, so his net worth is considerably lower than some of his peers.

A Silicon Valley challenger to the NYSE and Nasdaq is test-driving its alternative stock exchange, but companies may not list there until 2021

The Long-Term Stock Exchange, an attempt to create an alternative to the NYSE, NASDAQ, and other exchanges, said Friday it had recruited a board of directors and begun tests of its trading platform. The 10 directors include Amy Hong of Goldman Sachs, Erica Williams of Kirkland & Ellis, and former SEC enforcer Kathleen Hamm. The US outbreak of COVID-19 delayed plans for the exchange to begin operating in Q1 of 2020. Founder Eric Ries said companies could still start listing on the LTSE in 2020,...
