Investment Themes

At Yellow, we seek entrepreneurs who are building businesses, brands, and products that can contribute to human progress by helping people:

Express Themselves

People all around the world express themselves in different ways - through language, image, fashion, music, food, and more. When new modes of communication are made available to us, it can facilitate new conversations, creativity, and invention.

Live In The Moment

Our individual experiences define who we are. We’re excited about companies that help inspire people to be creative and present in their day to day lives with tools & products that enhance our experiences, rather than take away from them.

Learn About The World

Technology can play an integral role in informing the way we think, the way we consume, and the way we connect with each other. We seek companies that are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to help build a more informed, open minded, and conversational community.

Have Fun Together

Fun is at the heart of the human experience. We love companies that help people have fun with one another, regardless of if they are in the same physical space.
This could mean companies creating Augmented Reality experiences, Direct To Consumer brands, new consumer social apps, creative tools, and much much more. If you have a vision for or are building a company that is innovating within one or more of these themes - we want to chat!
