Collaborative Fund

New York
Collaborative Fund aims to be the leading source of capital and strategic support for creative entrepreneurs who want to change the world. The fund focuses on two themes: the increasing importance of values as they relate to the decisions people make about who they work for, what they buy, and how they spend their time; and the shift from an economy based on hyper-consumption to one based on Collaborative Consumption. These two forces present a significant opportunity for new technologies, products, and services to reinvent how society conducts business and transform daily lives. According to published reports, investors in the $6 million fund include GM O'Connell, Nicholas Negroponte, Jason Krikorian (co-founder of Sling Media), Ben Goldhirsh (heir to the Inc. Magazine fortune), and Brendan Synnot (founder of the 'Bear Naked' and 'Revelry' brands).
