CAA VENTURES INVESTS IN GREAT TECHNOLOGIES THAT WILL BECOME THE NEXT CULTURAL PHENOMENA.
We love working with entrepreneurs with big ideas that will change industries or spark new ones, and will impact the way society lives. We are looking for innovative companies where we can help entrepreneurs by utilizing CAA’s deep expertise and vast resources.
CAA Ventures offers an unparalleled value proposition to its portfolio companies, allowing them to “plug into” the CAA ecosystem and accelerate their businesses through our access to pop culture, including motion pictures, television, music, sports, retail, marketing, live events, licensing, fashion, lifestyle experts, event venues, digital media, games, philanthropy, and more.
CAA Ventures provides value beyond capital to company founders. These companies are largely in the consumer Internet sector with an emphasis on mobile platforms, social media, crowdfunding, online video, publishing, games, and eCommerce.
We look for investment opportunities with strong entrepreneurs, great and defensible technologies, and early signs of traction that indicate that there is huge scale to the business.
Based on our investment criteria, CAA Ventures generally co-invests in launched companies that are raising institutionally-led early-stage financing. We are also interested in later-stage investments, where a company has demonstrated traction with strong momentum and revenue growth, and is starting to show marketplace dominance in a particular sector.
An early-stage independent venture capital fund, CAA Ventures is directly aligned with the interests of the entrepreneurs, with its success measured by great outcomes and returns on its portfolio companies. CAA Ventures is managed by a team of seasoned executives with vast technology and finance experience at companies such as Facebook, Adobe, Electronic Arts, Demand Media, Pitango Venture Capital, Bridgewater Associates, Bear Stearns, Deutsche Bank, and Ernst & Young.
