VC News Daily, one of the leading web sites for news on Venture Capital, is excited to announce the launch of its revamped Celebrity VCs feature: https://vcnewsdaily.com/Celebrity_VCs.php, which profiles the biggest celebrities investing in startups.
Celebrities of all types—actors, athletes, and singers—are grabbing the VC bull-by-the-horn, and investing in early stage companies. From Justin Timberlake to Snoop Dogg, Kevin Durant to Will Smith, celebrities are taking stakes in the hottest startups.
And some celebrities aren’t just stopping at the occasional investment. Celebrities such as Ashton Kutcher, Aaron Rodgers, and Joe Montana even have their own Venture Capital firms.
“As they build their brands across business and entertainment platforms, celebrities are finding a natural symbiosis with startups,” stated Editor, Mike Stern. “By enticing celebrity investors, startups gain instant cache and credibility. For their part, the celebrities obtain equity positions at prices typically reserved only for institutional investors.”
Household corporate names such as Uber, Airbnb, Spotify, WarbyParker, and Slack are just a handful of the companies that have tapped celebrities as investors.
