Black Sheep Ventures is an investor in cutting edge high growth ventures in eSports, Gaming and Blockchain Technology

We look to invest in innovative and disruptive ventures in these areas.

Experiences and technologies that provide access to new realities, be they virtual as those in gaming or real as those enabled by blockchain or both where the virtual and physical realms meet.

Black Sheep Ventures is the brainchild of two Gaming and Technology entrepreneurs - Nolan Bushnell, the Godfather of the Video Game Industry and founder of Atari and Chuck E.

APPROACH

  • Black Sheep Ventures does not typically have a narrow sector or stage focus, rather focusing on a combination of factors that are key to the success of the ventures, including an oversized market opportunity, a differentiated technology and a world class team.
  • The firm can invest at the earliest stage of ideas or concept development to pre IPO funding. What matters is the potential of the opportunity and the experience, capability and vision of the team to achieve it.
  • Black Sheep Ventures seeks visionary entrepreneurs who are unflinching in creating new realities for entertainment experiences and human interactions, including in eSports, Gaming, Blockchain Technology and Immersive Experiences and other sectors, where disruptive technology such as Blockchain and visionary creativity can permanently shift the established order.
  • Black Sheep Ventures partners very closely with the entrepreneurs and teams it backs to help them achieve successful, scalable, profitable world class companies, providing capital, mentorship, guidance, experience and invaluable connections to help the founders thrive, without too much interference in the creativity of the founders.
  • Black Sheep Ventures takes a unique approach to each investment, but common across all investments is the firm’s commitment to work closely with the founders to help with achieving rapid market access, validating the business model and building successful operations at scale.
