    Founded in June 2002, Ackerley Partners, LLC is a privately held investment company with a focus on media and entertainment investment opportunities, including but not limited to: select investment banks, historical relationships from the media sector, entrepreneurs, institutional investors, private equity firms and venture funds. Ackerley seldom takes a leading investment/ownership position, preferring to assume a minority ownership position or teaming with other institutional financial backers. The firm considers development-stage companies with exceptional management teams that are targeting emerging markets in sectors in which the partners have experience; however, the primary focus is on companies that are in a later stage of fundraising, typically B or later, and have an established product and/or service that is generating revenue with a reasonable path to profitability.
