"Normally in tech, when you read about something in a book, it's already old news. This time, you're reading about a trend that will be wildly popular in 3-5 years. From an investor standpoint, putting money into a studio should be easy. By investing in one company, you invest in a whole portfolio - all heavily vetted startups, qualified and guided, by the company and core team you trusted with your money in the first place."
