WE SHIP DISRUPTIVE COMPANIES
Combining skills and capital. This combination allows us to rapidly execute on innovation.

The world needs innovation. It drives humanity forward. Products and services improve our lives every day. However the only constant in our world is change. In order to adapt to that change, continuous innovation is needed. Disrupting industries creates the change and new opportunities we need.

Bmuse http://bmuse.com1Edo SegalWe build companies that reshape the way people create and consume media.The bMuse studio offers many shared functions to each portfolio company, such as sales and marketing, legal, corporate development, and hands-on strategy. All startups want two things: lots of people to use their products and to get paid. We help bMuse companies achieve these goals by pairing them with strategic customers and partners.8 companies: touchcast, retoy, paragraph, vast, kinsa, theremedia, entertainment"His model works like this: Segal dreams up a product and his staff gets to work, toiling around the clock and around the world to make it a reality. He has industrial designers in Ukraine constructing prototypes, mobile developers in India coding apps, videographers in Los Angeles shooting promos. He recruits senior managers who share his vision to build a company around the nascent product with the understanding that he will eventually hand over operations to a full-time CEO and spin each venture off to do its own thing, whether that's to raise capital to expand, as with Kinsa; get acquired; or just turn a tidy profit." http://www.inc.com/magazine/201503/burt-helm/a-head-for-innovation.html
