Yes, this is exactly the case - Facebook, Amazon and Zynga, together with the major investment firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, established a new fund with a registered capital of $ 250 million. Agree, such funds are not created every day. Why was it created? As planned by the founding fathers, this fund will invest in various social applications and online services.
According to the partners, the funds will be allocated to change the “face” of the modern Internet, making it much more social than it is now. “There has never been a better time to launch a new social fund,” is the opinion of the founders.
Interestingly, among the fund's partners, there is the Comcast service provider, which is a strategic partner. Mark Zuckerberg, the number one social network leader in the world, believes that "the Internet has rebuilt everything around us, and we are at the point where any application, website or device can become more social."
In general, all project participants are well-intentioned and believe that their foundation can easily “blow up the Internet”, in a good sense of the word, of course. In fact, it is likely that major players in the social market are awaiting new ideas and new projects that their foundation will help to keep afloat. Well, then, at one point, you can always make a new startup a division of one of the companies participating in the project.
Let me remind you that the company Zynga is the developer of popular social games like Farmville and Mafia Wars. More successful games in the social network Facebook yet, but perhaps a new fund will help them appear, who knows.
Well, for now, young developers can try to take advantage of the new fund, which so far has enough money to support any startup. The fund, called sFund, seems to have already started working.
