Description

THE WEST TEXAS INVESTORS CLUB goes deep in the heart of Texas, removed from Main Street America, to meet the renegades who carved a fortune from a harsh and unforgiving land. While the rest of America chases spreadsheets and trends, these self-made men have broken with tradition to develop their own unique investment strategy. For decades they've chosen to pass along their success – and satisfy their own personal sense of adventure – by investing in others through their VC fund, The West Texas Investors Club. The fund's philosophy is simple: they invest in the person first, and the idea second. Their unorthodox approach to sourcing investment opportunities puts unsuspecting entrepreneurs, hailing from across the country, to the ultimate test.
