The idea of creating FanVestor in 2019, an innovative platform dedicated to supporting celebrities and talent brands, drew inspiration from historical successes including:

FIFA*

Global top flight football clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona FC, AS Roma, Dortmund, Celtic and Arsenal can be bought and sold on worldwide exchanges.

David Bowie*

David Bowie raised $55M from fans to buyback album rights. Royalties from 25 albums were securitized as the underlying asset.

Madison Square Garden*

Madison Square Garden owns an interest in NY Knicks and NY Rangers where fans can buy and sell an indirect interest in the underlying sports teams.

These are examples of historical fan investing prior to FanVestor. All investments carry risk, and there is no guarantee of success regardless of celebrity or talent involvement in the project or business. Neither FanVestor nor any team members were involved in any of these examples.
