Chamillionaire is known the world over from his 2005 hit song “Ridin,’” but he is also an illustrator, startup investor, entrepreneur, business mentor, and gives a tremendous presentation. In his short investing career he has backed Cruise Automation, a company that develops self-driving vehicle technology, and Maker Studios, multi-channel network that hosted online personalities such as PewDiePie. Cruise was bought by General Motors for over $1 billion and Maker Studios was purchased by Disney in 2014 for about $675 million. Chamillionaire’s latest company that he is heavily invested in is a social media app called “Convoz.” Last weekend at the Upfront Summit in Los Angeles, Chamillionaire put on an all-star presentation to showcase Convoz and it was a smashing success.

Last summer, Convoz did a soft launch for their new social media platform and now they are ready to go full-throttle. Convoz is a video-centric social media app that aims to be “the place where you go to talk to people.” Convoz markets itself as “an app for creating public collaborative conversation through video, which is what we call a convo. Users can create a convo to share their opinions and receive video responses from others. A convo allows individuals to communicate face-2-face sharing their thoughts and feelings as if they were speaking in the same room.”
