Talent Agency

VC industry resembles entertainment industry. That is why Andreessen Horowitz, a prominent Silicon Valley VC firm, models Itself after CAA, a Hollywood talent agency. Talent agency’s influence has grown so much. Without it, it is hard to cut any deal. Recruited, trained, and promoted by a prominent talent agency means a lot. Once unknown turns to be a super star overnight. Fast Track Asia, K-Cube Ventures, and BonAngels are influential angel & seed investors in Korea with the look-and-feel of “talent search” firm in the technology industry. Though, we’d like to see more complete “promotion” machine to make their “already hot” start-ups even hotter.
