Bryant Stibel was founded in 2013 to provide strategy, capital, and operational support to businesses with a focus across technology, media, and data. The Bryant Stibel platform is unique in that it combined the creative vision of Kobe Bryant, one of the world’s most well-known and respected sports icons, with Jeff Stibel, a proven market-driven operator and serial entrepreneur, alongside a team of proven public and private company senior management operating partners at Stibel & Co. The team has extensive experience operating technology and data-driven businesses, as well as deploying capital out of its core platforms, Bryant Stibel Growth Equity, Bryant Stibel Ventures and Bryant Stibel Value.

The firm partners with companies looking to unlock value and drive sustainable long-term growth. Stibel & Co.’s Office of the Chairman adds additional value by providing strategic advisory and tactical support to management teams and stakeholders seeking a collaborative and constructive partner.

Along the way, Bryant Stibel has built relationships and helped execute business transformations with a variety of entrepreneurs and industry leaders.

Here’s what our partners have to say:

“Bryant Stibel is very focused on aligning with the shareholders and with the management team in execution. They don’t have any conflicting interests – they are there to help. They’re not there to sell, they don’t want credit. They literally are there saying, ‘We don’t need credit, but we do want to add value because we are equity holders.’ And I think that only comes when both the company and our partner are tremendously confident in each other’s capabilities.”
“Bryant Stibel is very operationally focused, meaning that they can add actual value and they’re very much getting engaged with solving transactional and other issues versus acting in a purely advisory capacity. While other firms tend to act more in an advisory capacity, Bryant Stibel can provide advice while also leveraging their network of contacts to actually deliver changes and operational results for you at your request. That’s been a huge difference.”
Bryant Stibel’s philosophy of serving the CEO allows for a powerful partnership to deliver value. I conducted my own diligence on what it was like working with this team and it all came back incredibly positive. They’ve exceeded expectations in the short time they’ve been involved at Tile. It’s amazing to have them in your corner.


Bryant Stibel offers a diverse blend of operational expertise…

“In terms of team, I think they have some of the strongest team members for any investment or consultant firm. They really understand their domain. They understand SAAS, they understand ecommerce, they understand brand. They are a wealth of knowledge.”
“Jeff and his team are extremely smart yet humble in their approach. They are ready to roll up their sleeves and work with teams on tactics, always while considering the long-term strategy. In my role as CEO, Jeff has been a highly valuable and trustworthy sounding board, always making himself available to offer advice and guidance.”
“From our first conversation, I felt an instant connection to Jeff, Pete and the whole team at Bryant Stibel, and it’s only strengthened over the years. They’ve given sound counsel, made smart introductions, and truly care. Their advice and insight have helped Funny Or Die navigate the constantly changing world of entertainment, and they even let us use their office space for executive retreats! That’s just the kind of people they are.”


“Jeff has been providing us with great advice and support for many years as we’ve grown. His wealth of knowledge, sharp insight and team orientation fit perfectly with our company’s culture and needs. He recently brought his team in to do a deeper evaluation and the information they provided was extremely helpful as we move to the next level.”



This team understands the unique challenges and mindset of their entrepreneurs because they have been in their shoes…

“I think the fact that I can drop my guard and truly feel like I have not one but several mentors within the Bryant Stibel family to really run my ideas by and to hear some of their ideas is always hugely helpful because when you walk into a board meeting, you have different stakeholders who have different agendas and the ability to truly feel like you have somebody on your side, no matter what, is gold.”
“The Bryant Stibel team has been a valuable partner to us as we have grown the business, working to help solve critical business issues and find key areas of opportunity. They are patient and engaged, acting more like true partners than investors. They are strategic but equally willing to roll up their sleeves and get to work with us. Jeff Stibel is smart, thinks like an operator, and is just a great human. I look forward to every opportunity to spend time with him and his team.”
“I have known and worked with Jeff and team for a while now across multiple companies. As former high-caliber operators, the Bryant Stibel team brings not only a fresh, objective perspective, they do so from a place of having been in the operating seat, something you do not get from most consultants nor investors. They add value immediately and work to empower the team, not undermine them. They are true partners in every respect.”
“Jeff and team are simply outstanding. They have such a unique combination of super smart, highly P&L focused, with great business acumen and analytical skills that they really help a business have huge impact on their future results. They understand the business from the CEO/senior management and shareholder perspective and work seamlessly with the entire organization to have great results on the business and its (profitable) growth.”



Bryant Stibel helps businesses by incorporating consumer behavior and brain science…

“They really understand internet businesses. They understand the economics of internet, customer acquisition through the funnel, the unit economics and how that works, the whole concept of lifetime value, customer acquisition costs – that’s a really critical piece in our business and I think the fact that they really get that back to front is very important. I can also see some remnants of brain science insights being imparted to the Bryant Stibel strategies and execution from the customers’ perspective – on how our customers think about us as a product, how customers think about pricing, and our marketing in general.”


Bryant Stibel strives to share success and experience across their network…

“The Bryant Stibel team act as true partners to our business – working alongside our team to chart innovative paths, opening their extensive network to us, and celebrating both our large and small victories.”
“The thing that Bryant Stibel has been the most influential with is they have been very open with making introductions and really stretching their network to connect us.”
“They’ve been incredibly helpful in terms of helping to build our team, bringing in our partners from the Athletic partners to Content partners, and so we’re incredibly thankful for them to be our partners at Art of Sport.”
“The Stibel team are true partners, offering high level strategic guidance as well as practical on the ground detailed work when needed. They understand the importance of people and spend as much time building relationships and getting the most out of teams, as they do in the technical details of the business. I would invite the Stibel team to support any business I work with in the future.”
