Time for the finale of Creating the PLL with our final episode of the series, highlighting our lead investor and board -- the Raine Group. Founded in 2009 by Joseph Ravitch and Jeffrey Sine, The Raine Group is an integrated merchant bank advising and investing in high growth sectors of technology, media and telecom. With offices in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Shanghai and Mumbai, Raine’s investment portfolio includes (but is not limited to) Draft Kings, Cheddar, VICE, Nitro Circus, SoundCloud, and…the Premier Lacrosse League. Topics on the show range from a discussion on the PLL launch, our corporate strategy, financing, and the future of sport – but not just lacrosse...we discuss major sports properties like the UFC, NFL, and MLB, noting differences and similarities to our business approach in lacrosse. I think you’ll hear why having a strategic lead investor is mission critical to a company’s road to success. It’s actually more rare than it is common. Two PLL board members join me from Raine – Colin Neville and Rob Pietroforte. Enjoy the final episode of Creating the PLL. Suiting Up is a show that explores the psychology, playbook of tools, and strategies of the most influential people in sports, entrepreneurship, and entertainment.
