Our core verticals include: digital fitness/wellness, immersive media (OTT/streaming, AR/VR, fan engagement), smart venue applications, esports, sports betting/fantasy. If you're doing anything in these spaces, feel free to reach out.
We typically won't invest before the core team is in place and the product/service is in market (pilot stage works), but appreciate getting to know founding teams before then.
