The recipient of a bachelor’s in accounting from the University of Northern Iowa and a master of business administration with an emphasis in finance from Drake University, Mark Allen Hanrahan has over 25 years of experience in real estate investing. In recent years, serving as a managing partner with Markmel Co., Mark Allen Hanrahan has focused on venture capital transactions.

The Golden State Warriors recently won its second National Basketball Association (NBA) championship in three years, but rather than relaxing through the offseason, a pair of its players are seeking success in venture capital. On Monday, June 19, Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala announced they will be hosting The Players Technology Summit at an undisclosed venue in San Francisco from August 14 to 16.

The summit is sponsored by Bloomberg and will aim to enlighten professional athletes in investing opportunities off the court. It will include panel discussions with high-profile tech CEOs, venture capitalists, and other professional athletes with experience in venture capital. Iguodala, in partnership with the NBA players union, spearheaded a tech summit last year, while prominent athletes such as Kobe Bryant and Serena Williams have recently invested in venture capital firms and promising tech startups in Silicon Valley.

A certified public accountant and chartered financial analyst, Mark Allen Hanrahan leverages over 25 years of investment experience as a managing partner for Markmel Co. When he isn’t closing real estate transactions or studying local and global markets, Mark Allen Hanrahan enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the Chicago Bears.

After failing to make the playoffs for the sixth consecutive season, the Bears decided to release veteran quarterback Jay Cutler, who had been with the team the previous eight seasons. The team seemed to find a long-term replacement in Mike Glennon, who was signed to a three-year, $43.5 million contract, but Chicago added further intrigue to its quarterback plans at the 2017 NFL Draft. The Bears made a trade with the San Francisco 49ers, moving up from third to second overall to select quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

In three seasons with the University of North Carolina, Trubisky recorded 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while accumulating 4,762 yards passing. After serving as the team’s backup quarterback in 2014 and 2015, he impressed as a starter in 2016, finishing 10th in the NCAA in passing yards with 3,748 and seventh in pass completions with 304.
