Legendary hedge fund manager Steven Cohen is starting a venture capital fund.
According to a report from Bloomberg News, Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management has started a unit called Honeycomb Ventures that will “mainly invest in growth equity opportunities.”
Bloomberg’s Saijel Kishan reports:
Honeycomb will invest in global media, technology and telecommunication companies, including those that focus on cloud computing, payments and security technology and e-commerce, according to Point72 spokesman Mark Herr …
Honeycomb is leading a second round of financing for a wine app called Delectable, which instantly recognises any wine from a photo and allows users to get opinions, see what friends are drinking, buy wine and keep track of their favourite drinks, according to [a] Point72 memo.
Point72 now operates only as a family office and manages the wealth of Cohen and its employees.
