Kobe Bryant Is Getting Into the Venture Capital Game

The retired NBA legend just announced his next move.

Kobe Bryant retired from professional basketball earlier this year, but you didn’t think that was the last we would hear from him, did you?

Introducing: Kobe Bryant, venture capitalist.

Kobe started the morning off by ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Now, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the five-time NBA champion has launched a venture capital firm, Bryant Stibel.

The Los Angeles-based firm has a $100 million fund and plans to invest in media, technology, and data companies. The firm is a co-venture with Bryant’s partner, entrepreneur and brain scientist Jeff Stibel. They’ll be adding to a list of investments that already includes sports website The Players Tribune, legal services company Legal Zoom, a juicing company, and a video game designer.
