Why we invested
We were immediately won over by founder Guillaume Lacroix’s vision for a cutting-edge, impactful media platform. It’s clear that today’s young people aren’t reading newspapers—and relying on social media for information is flawed. The short, high-quality videos on Brut are human-centric and focused on individual stories, but with a global perspective—a vision we share completely. Brut has been a major success and is only getting bigger. These are the opportunities we live for: ventures that make a positive impact while doing great business.
