DEV fuels the companies that transform media and entertainment. Our portfolio spans music, TV/film, games, publishing and social media.
We invest seed stage capital in start-ups and early stage capital in companies that are on a roll. Here are some of the things we look for:
Your business should represent a transformative trend in media and entertainment, and the product you are selling should fill a genuine gap or need in the marketplace.
You should be able to validate your business concept and identify several natural exit opportunities.
Key developmental milestones should be achievable at low cost and your product should have the potential to reach significant scale.
Your management team should have prior operating experience and include thought leaders in their field.
You should have a strong presence in New York City and the DEV team members should be able to add value. Visit the website for more info: devny.vc
