The End Is Near: Justin Bieber Has A Startup
A new Justin Bieber video is circulating of Justin Bieber playing basketball with NBA star Steve Nash.
The play date happened at Chelsea Piers in late June.
How is this relevant to tech, you ask?
One of the other players was Mike Duda (in blue), co-partner of Nash’s venture capital firm, Consigliere Brand Capital.
Consigliere has invested in three New York-based startups: Birchbox, StellaService and Chloe & Isabel.
Why would Justin Bieber spend the afternoon horsing around with investors?
We’re guessing it’s because the singer is investing in startups. In fact, we know he is investing in startups. We heard about a stealth New York startup Bieber invested in last week.
We’re not at liberty to announce which startup just yet. All we can tell you is that the Bieber-backed startup will be a good-natured Zynga, and it has other high-profile celebrity backers on board.
