Chris Sacca, the embroidered cowboy-shirt-wearing brother of Brian Sacca, is a former Google executive and manages the venture capital firm Lowercase Capital. He is an investor in Twitter and Uber. While he has in the past criticized some of the product pitches on “Shark Tank,” Sacca is now on board for the show’s new sights.
