With investor Jeff Stibel, the retired NBA star has launched a $100 million fund to back companies combining technology, media and data.
Usually, such plays are more like dabbling than a career, with an angel investment here and there, says Aaron Gafni, a partner with law firm Greenberg Glusker’s corporate and emerging-technology and new media groups in LA. In Bryant’s case, though, there’s a sense of diligence and thoughtfulness about investing, Gafni notes.
