Share the word

This is part of a series on Venture Voice where we ask a bunch of past show guests a simple question and post their answers.

David Sacks: I asked Peter, Max and Elon to finance “Thank You For Smoking” with me. I didn’t have to do too much selling since I had worked with them at PayPal and was putting in my own money.
