Oseary

Cofounder

Oseary’s April 2021 alone is the stuff of envy for most executives. That’s when two of the companies he cofounded raised funds: Community, a text-based engagement platform (President Obama, NFL star Tom Brady and musicians including Paul McCartney and Alicia Keys), got a $40 million stake, while Pearpop (think TikTok meets Cameo) got $16 million. He still has time to manage top artists, though, because April is also when the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Madonna and U2 on his roster. Sound Ventures, the fund he leads with Ashton Kutcher, was a player when Airbnb went public in December 2020 with a valuation of $100 billion. This year, eight more companies funded by Sound Ventures had IPOs, with combined valuations exceeding $75 billion, including Robinhood in July at $32 billion.
