Here’s a crowdsourced list of media investors: VC firms, private equity firms, and other investment firms (plus angel investors) around the world whose primary focus is investing in media companies. It is an interactive Airtable database. Thanks to all my Daily Briefing subscribers who have contributed and/or who confirmed their information is accurate.
This database is meant as a resource for media investors, media entrepreneurs, TMT bankers, and executives throughout the global media industry. Its particular focus is on media investors in the US and Europe, and it includes a broad scope of subsectors within media: TV/film/video, publishing, music, gaming & esports, augmented reality, virtual reality, digital education & edtech, and telecom.
US and European firms that are particularly active media investors include: Advancit Capital, BDMI (Bertelsmann), CAA Ventures, Causeway Media Partners, Courtside Ventures, Eldridge Industries, Emerson Collective, Endeavor, Evolution Media Capital, Greycroft Partners, Hearst Ventures, HV Holtzbrinck Ventures, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, LionTree Advisors, Luminari Capital, Makers Fund, Matter.vc, Northzone, ProSiebenSat.1 and related funds, Providence Equity Partners, Raine Group, Saban Capital, Shamrock Capital, The Chernin Group, Waverly Capital, WndrCo., and Ziff Capital Partners.
I’m sure there are many great media investors missing from the database above, so please submit suggestions of others to include using the forms at the top of this page.
