    From Talk Show to Term Sheets: Investing in Female Entrepreneurs -- Jesse Draper (Founding Partner, Halogen Ventures)

    From Talk Show to Term Sheets: Investing in Female Entrepreneurs -- Jesse Draper (Founding Partner, Halogen Ventures)

    Jesse Draper is the Founding Partner of Halogen Ventures, an early stage VC fund focused on female-founded consumer technology companies. Jesse started her career in entertainment, landing a part as a series regular on a Nickelodeon show before launching her own program: “The Valley Girl Show.” The Emmy nominated talk show, which started on YouTube and later transitioned to television, featured interviews with legendary entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban, Sheryl Sandberg, Jessica Alba, and Eric Schmidt. Jesse also interviewed many aspiring female entrepreneurs and began angel investing before raising her first venture fund.

    In this episode, Jesse shares her early experience in media as well as her frustration with the industry’s outdated business models. She calls for alternatives to sponsorship-based monetization, highlighting the success of her portfolio company The Skimm’s hybrid model of ads and paid subscriptions. Finally, Jesse explains how Halogen’s mission to invest in women-led startups is good for business, as female leaders typically raise half as much money, exit one year earlier, and double the average returns of their male counterparts.

    The Evolution of Influencer Marketing -- Emily Fonda & Jay Kent-Hume (Co-Founders, The Sociable Society)

    Emily Fonda and Jay Kent-Hume are the Co-Founders of The Sociable Society, a talent management firm and influencer marketing agency that works with influencers across the U.S. and Canada. Prior to launching The Sociable Society, Emily worked in public relations and Jay worked in staffing and recruitment.

    In this episode, Jay and Emily discuss the evolution of influencer marketing over the past decade and their predictions for the future. We explore how product reviews and recommendations shifted from word of mouth and celebrity endorsements to online ratings and influencer recommendations. We also evaluate the impact of social media and influencer marketing on politics, sports, and consumerism, particularly in a world of one-click shopping and next-day shipping. Finally, Emily and Jay describe the move away from microinfluencers and an emphasis on longer term partnerships between brands and high profile creators, and we predict more FTC regulation and more product placement coming to the world of influencer marketing.

    Startups vs. Incumbents: Innovation in Media and Entertainment -- Eric Peckham (Media Columnist, TechCrunch)

    Startups vs. Incumbents: Innovation in Media and Entertainment -- Eric Peckham (Media Columnist, TechCrunch)

    Eric Peckham is an analyst for TechCrunch and the creator of the Monetizing Media newsletter. Earlier in his career, he worked in startups and venture capital in New York and Los Angeles.

    In this episode, Eric and I discuss how media industry realignment favors incumbents over new entrants – a seemingly new phenomenon given platform shifts had historically offered greater opportunity for startups. According to Eric, there are a few elements at play. For one, many startups are staying private longer and opting for strategic exits rather than IPOs, which makes it easier for cash-rich tech giants to acquire would-be competitors. What’s more, the Internet often creates “winner take all” or at least “winner take most” dynamics, which can stifle competitive innovation once an incumbent becomes entrenched. And finally, our global anti-trust laws are incredibly outdated. Despite calls to update them for the Internet age, some politicians worry about hamstringing domestic companies in the face of foreign competitors.

    The Secret Behind Specialty Programming -- Fred Seibert (Chief Creative Officer, WOW! Unlimited Media)

    The Secret Behind Specialty Programming -- Fred Seibert (Chief Creative Officer, WOW! Unlimited Media)

    Fred Seibert is the Chief Creative Officer of WOW! Unlimited Media, a Canadian animation and media holding company. Fred began his career in radio and music production before transitioning to television as MTV’s first Creative Director. He later co-founded a media branding agency and then served as President of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons before it was acquired by Time Warner. Fred was the Founder & CEO of Next New Networks, one of the first multi-channel networks which was acquired by YouTube in 2011, after which he founded Frederator, which he’s run for the past 23 years.

    In this episode, we discuss media’s impact on pop culture over the last few decades. Fred marvels at the impact that the previously unknown artist Lil Nas X’s has had on the music industry with his record-breaking hit “Old Town Road,” which initially gained traction on TikTok and other social platforms. We also debate the effectiveness of Netflix’s programming strategy and examine why newer SVOD entrants all seek to copy the Netflix model. Finally, Fred predicts a resurgence in specialty programming to serve niche audiences and explains why animation can’t be easily commoditized in the same way as music and television.

    Eugene Choi and Allen Lee are the Co-Founders of Collab Asia.
