CNBC’s new series, “West Texas Investors Club,” takes place deep in the heart of Texas, where self-made multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam built their fortunes in the oil and pipe business. For the past several years, they’ve chosen to pass on that success by investing in promising entrepreneurs – but only on their turf and their terms. If Rooster’s last name sounds familiar, it’s because he is the brother of Matthew McConaughey.
Along with their close friend and confidante Gil Prather, Rooster and Butch invite ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country to come down to West Texas and make their case. These folks know that they’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure an investment…but what they don’t know is that clever products and beautiful balance sheets will only get you so far with these investors. No, Rooster and Butch won’t make a deal until they’ve peered into your heart and soul – and taken the true measure of your character and your company.
