Early-stage investment in high tech firms that power tomorrow’s media experience

We focus on the intersection of media and technology, investing in founders that change how media is created, distributed and monetized.

We focus on transformative media technology platforms

We value innovative and defensible technology, a scalable business model, and a strong, committed and passionate management team. We work closely with portfolio companies to help accelerate growth. We optimize value through thought leadership, operational excellence, integrity, and investment discipline.


Informed and sound investment decisions

We were founded following a 20-year tenure in media & technology entrepreneurial operations, with the goal of bringing our experience and the differentiated network we’ve built to the entrepreneurs we invest in. Our experience in entertainment and media helps us mitigate risk during due diligence and offer mentorship to our portfolio entrepreneurs to help accelerate growth. It’s our way of paying it forward.

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 expertise help us gain access to exciting new projects where we roll up our sleeves and partner with the founders to add tangible value.

Our investments’ sweet spot

Seed Funding is one of the earliest stages of venture funding, which helps entrepreneurs cover expenses while launching a new firm. Early Growth Funding normally follows, via a bridge financing round or a Series A round, to help entrepreneurs commercialize their work and launch and grow an early minimum viable product (“MVP”) or service. Most VC firms have moved upstream in recent years to make larger investments in later stage companies, leaving behind a growing volume of funding needs at the earlier stages.

Media-centric technology firms that need capital in the early stage of their life-cycle are in our sweet spot. We look at media very broadly – from music, video and e-sports to fitness, education and communication – we seek novel technologies that offer scale. “Nice to have” ideas are not enough – we seek entrepreneurs that impact how media is created, distributed and monetized. 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.
