Join fellow YMBL members and guests for an inspirational and informative luncheon where Randall Crowder speaks on entrepreneurship, venture capital, healthcare and the rise of cryptocurrencies. He's passionate about new venture creation and the innovative spirit that fuels entrepreneurs and advances technology. As an active investor, entrepreneur, and publication contributor, he understands what it takes to successfully launch and grow new businesses. 

Randall is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Phunware, a technology company in Austin, TX developing mobile and data solutions for major brands and launching a unique cryptocurrency called PhunCoin. Prior to Phunware, Randall led over 40 angel investments and deployed over $60M across 14 companies as a venture capitalist. Randall is a co-founder and Managing Partner at TEXO Ventures where he focused on tech-enabled health services and he is the sole founder and Managing Partner at Novē Ventures where he focuses on companies leveraging blockchain technology. Prior to venture capital, he led the Central Texas Angel Network (CTAN) to becoming one of the most active angel networks in the country. Randall also founded and launched Texas Venture Labs (TVL) at UT in order to give the next generation of investors unique experiential learning opportunities outside of the classroom.

Before getting involved in venture and entrepreneurship, Randall was a Captain in the United States Army and is both Airborne and Ranger qualified. He served over six years active duty and deployed twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom where he was awarded two Bronze Stars for his actions during combat operations.
