Welcome back to Venture Desktop, a weekly audio(ish) project focused on exploring a key thread that I am picking up on the ground as I think about, invest in, and work with companies that are building the future of work, wellness, media, cities, and industry.
Venture Desktop is not long form, but it is a deep dive focused on highlighting, annotating, and more thoroughly understanding the trends, companies, and people shaping the rapidly changing world that we live in.
This week, I dive into the rise of Creator Led Media Companies, a topic that I’ve been fascinated with for a while and where I’ve had the chance to partner with some exciting companies taking different approaches to the market through my work at TechNexus.
In addition to the Youtube video below, you can head here to listen to the episode via your podcast app of preference (and subscribe 😉). I’ve also included all of the links I go through in the episode below.
Enjoy and please reach out with any feedback or ideas, I’d love to hear from you!
