Bill Silva makes strategic early stage investments in a broad range of categories spanning from music to technology to consumer products. Bill aims to bring creative synergies to his portfolio by leveraging his management experience, entertainment divisions, and extensive personal and professional network. Similar to his ethos in managing an artist, Bill chooses to be hands on with his companies and founders where he is available to act as a sounding board, make relevant introductions, or help with key decisions and strategic planning. Bill invests opportunistically and always has his eyes open for mission-driven founders and companies working on game changing concepts.
In addition to personal investments, Bill is a founding member of the Techstars Music accelerator program. Each year the program selects 10 of the worlds best music-related startups, invests in them, and hosts them for a 3 month accelerator program with access to investors and mentors from the global music business.
