We are next-gen investment fund, that nurtures creative industry’s future talents.

After years serving the investment banking industry upon billion dollars transactions, Olivier Rivard-Cohen bumps into private equity when trying to make his passion for brands and creatives meet his expertise. He finances luxury brands for a few years through a top notch fund, with executive offices in Paris, New York and Los Angeles. He therefore witnessed the major gap between a traditionnal investor’s expectations, and those of an entrepreneur in this sector of activity. On one hand, creatives and entrepreneurs are looking for added value, investors who have the inner capacity to help them grow and support their operational stakes, smart money ; on the other hand the investors are looking for fast profit, while showing devouring appetite for control. He realized very quick that he at the moment was taking part on that inadequate and soon-to-be obsolete system. He felt like watching great brands drowning, overwhelmed by long cycles and rigid criterias, not always matching their stage of development. Classic venture capital firms desperately try to read a company’s potential by pouring meaningless KPIs into rentability grids regardless the power of the brand.

He left his job and created his own business, in order to support the growth of young labels from the creative industry, by providing operational resources (such as strategy, branding, digital marketing, finance) they lack because they can’t afford them. He also provided equity for promising brands, delivering faster and more accurate transactions because of the absolute brand knowledge acquired by working hand in hand. It appears quickly that the system has to be cracked up. The time where the future of entrepreneurs depends on a handful of happy few investors and decision makers is long gone. Not only the labels need faster solutions, which cannot be provided on a classic venture cap approach involving traditionnal organs; above all, the labels need support from like-minded communities. They need promotion, influence, viral spread of their content. it’s the beginning of Mothers: an STO supported project which has the ability to provide all of the above, through the platform and the token, as well as to garantee its holders rewards and shares on the brand’s benefits. Welcome to new era, where strong communitites meet talents, creating creative class heroes.
