  • 歌手Jay-Z提交文件成立一個可能是以兒時居住住宅命名的投資基金

      201807/0603:28

    ◎根據上個月向加州政府提交的文件,歌手Jay-Z正在擴大他在風險投資方面的事業。本名Shawn Carter的Jay-Z和Walden Venture Capital的董事總經理Lawrence Marcus及Roc Nation的總裁Jay Brown一起創建了一個名為Marcy Venture Partners的投資基金。該基金的名字應該是來自對Jay-Z兒時所居住的布魯克林公共集合住宅Marcy Houses的致意,Jay-Z在他的歌詞中曾一再提及該處。

    ◎這不是Jay-Z第一次把目光轉向風險投資。近幾年來,Jay-Z支持了幾家備受矚目的公司,包括行李箱公司Away、外匯股票經紀應用程式Robinhood及私人飛機公司JetSmarter。

    ◎去年,新聞網站Axios報導說,Jay-Z正計劃與舊金山風險投資公司Sherpa Capital一起成立風險投資基金,但該基金的計劃在Sherpa據報導出現困難後無法具體實現,不過新的提交文件顯示上述的延遲並沒有讓Jay-Z失去對投資的興趣。

    Jay-Z is expanding his efforts in venture capital, according to paperwork filed with the state of California sometime last month.

    Along with Walden Venture Capital's managing director, Lawrence Marcus, and Roc Nation's president, Jay Brown, the rapper, whose real name is Shawn Carter, is creating a fund called Marcy Venture Partners.

    The fund's name may be a nod to Carter's upbringing in the Marcy Houses, the public-housing complex in Brooklyn that Carter has been repeatedly mentioned in his lyrics.

    This isn't the first time the celebrated rapper has turned his eye to venture capital. Carter has backed several high-profile companies in recent years including the luggage company Away, the brokerage app Robinhood, and the private-jet company JetSmarter.

    Last year, the news website Axios reported that Carter was planning to launch a VC fund along with the San Francisco-based venture firm Sherpa Capital. Plans for the fund failed to materialize after reported complications with Sherpa, though the new filing reveals that the delays haven't caused Carter to lose his interest in investing.

    Representatives for Carter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
