Discovering, Mentoring, and Investing in Innovative Media Technology Companies

We facilitate a differentiated investment vehicle by seeking novel, scalable and defensible technologies that positively impact the way media is created, distributed and monetized. We apply capital, operating experience, relationships, and market intelligence to cultivate the next generation of leading founders in the media tech sector.

Media Innovations Are Transforming Our Lives

Supported by the increased recognition and realization, by both consumers and corporations, of the value of at-home and mobile media consumption, the media tech sector is expected to grow aggressively for the balance of the decade – fueled by sectors such as fitness, communications, education, entertainment and art, gaming and esports. As companies hone in on public needs in a post-pandemic world, new technologies are vital. Consumers are increasingly adopting digital habits, driving the innovation of emerging media companies worldwide. Entrepreneurs are inspired to drive growth using transformative media technologies and innovative business models.


We Value Our Unique Deal Flow and Access

We leverage our unique professional network, our relationship with incubators and accelerators, and our syndication partners to source strong investment opportunities in our market segment. Our reputation and experience help us gain access to exciting new projects where we roll up our sleeves and partner with the founders to add tangible value. We invest where we find passionate and hard-working founders that are building meaningful enterprises with the potential to make a significant and lasting impact.

Our Investments’ Sweet Spot

We are carefully curating innovative media-centric technology firms that need capital in the early stage of their growth, usually once a minimum viable product (“MVP”) has already been deployed and shows measurable traction. Normally this means seed to Series A, although we don’t oppose being a first check in unique circumstances. “Nice to have” ideas are not enough – we seek deep impact, scalable enterprises. We invest in various technologies, media and entertainment categories, target audiences and locations to offer a balanced portfolio and offset risk.

Our Team

Our team members each boast decades as executives, operators and investors in the media sector. Our Directors assist us during due diligence and help our start-ups accelerate their go-to-market strategy.
