Years with firm: 2
Better known for managing Madonna and Alex Rodriguez, Guy Oseary reportedly relies on how he feels about a company and its potential when considering funding. His Sound co-founder, actor Ashton Kutcher, is more apt to crunch numbers. The neighbors broke away from previous A-Grade Investment partner Ron Burkle to pursue bigger opportunities with the more formal Sound fund.
Industry specialization: Technology and transportation.
Deal range: $500,000 to $4 million. Sound has invested at every level – seed, Series A, B and C – in 29 companies.
Recent transactions: Lead investor in Apptopia, an analytics, data-mining, and business intelligence mobile service. Invested in Imbellus, Matterport, GrubMarket, and Trim since July.
