💆🏾‍♂️Entrepreneur / Angel Investor / aka “DJ Rich Cacao”/ Founder/GirlDad, Authenticated Ventures a brand studio and investment advisory that leverages culture to accelerate opportunities and growth outcomes for our portfolio and partners. We are really good at what we do, just sayin.


💿Recovering label executive from the LA/NYC 90’s hip hop / r&b “golden era” who worked at Columbia Records with all your favorite artists. I’m here to build bridges and support the creative economy. I believe Hip Hop is the Original “Lean Startup”

🙂The Authenticated is our membership community consisting of founders, funders and bosses. We have a club here on Clubhouse and do a lot of our programs “off-campus.” Our superpower is that we are able to “Scale Serendipity” by making the rooms where things happen

-Wednesday (8am PT) “Culture & Code Weekly.” Roundup of insights, observations, opportunities from within the community

📲Text 415-843-8100 with “clubhouse” if I can be helpful or “DJ” if you want to hang out in our avatar world when we spin records.
