Video: An August 2016 CNBC Interview with Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant and his co-founder Jeff Stibel, former CEO of Web.com, discussing their venture capital fund Bryant Stibel.
According to a L.A. Times article dated JAN. 26, 2020, “In 2013, Bryant quietly co-founded a venture capital fund with entrepreneur Jeff Stibel to invest in media and tech companies. They unveiled Bryant Stibel & Co. in 2016, months after Bryant played his last game as a Laker. Its high-profile investments have included legal services company LegalZoom and Epic Games, the maker of smash hit “Fortnite” — as well as misfire Juicero, whose Wi-Fi-compatible juicer was ultimately laughed out of business. By September 2019, the firm reportedly managed more than $2 billion in capital.”
