Investment Themes

Authentic Brands

Authoritative brands no longer have any authority. In our consulting work, we A/B tested a new brand and a 123-year-old legacy brand.

The new brand out performed the legacy by 300%. $17B+ in industry sales have shifted away from large companies to smaller players since 2013.

Mobile Entertainment

TV is dying, and people are tired of switching between the same 3 apps on their phone. This leaves a white space for new forms of mobile entertainment.

Global revenues in mobile entertainment are expected to double by 2022 from $58.4B to $128.1B.

Experience & eSports

We’re looking for experience businesses that take our eyes off the screen.

Experience-spending is growing 1.5x more than overall personal consumption and 4x faster than expenditures on goods.
