Celebrity as Investor
Over the last couple of years, the venture community has seen a deluge of celebrities throwing their hats into the ring as angel investor, venture capitalist, incubator, founder and even operator! This panel will focus briefly on the how and the why celebrities have found a new role in the financial ecosystem, as well as how more traditional founders, operators and venture firms can play a more symbiotic role / benefit from this development. Our panelists will be some of the most successful celebrities in their respective fields (music, sports, film) in addition to being astute investors!
