    Founded by Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary, Sound Ventures is a venture capital firm that typically invests in consumer-technology companies. Sound Ventures is also looking for new ways to support startups post-investment. In 2016, the firm held its first Reverb conference. That conference provided a way to connect companies that intersect with the public sector with local and state governments and get them up to speed on what's happening in the tech world.
