Wow, I don't know why I feel like this great divide between the VC world and consumers is narrowing faster each passing day. I think this move by Influencers is going to tap into and jump-start consumer-driven innovation big time! Examples, Step and Facetune, super popular.


I really dig this part: The D’Amelio family said the fund will have a particular focus on women- and minority-led startups...“Our family wants to help a new generation of female and minority entrepreneurs build great companies. We hope to play a growing role in leveling the startup playing field over time,” 👏
