Ashton Kutcher is a famous actor and, most recently, tech investor. He doesn’t need the money from a big startup exit since he makes a reported $800,000 per episode of Two and a Half Men.
Mike Arrington asked him on stage at Disrupt why he invests.
“When I was 19 I was a model, so being appreciated for something that’s a little more substantive is nice,” he says.
Kutcher also says that he doesn’t mind losing money as long as he invests in companies that are making people happy.
“If I don’t make any money but we’re aiding people’s happiness, that’s what matters. The companies that will ultimately improve people’s lives are the companies that will make it. Wealth chases [things that make people happy].”
